How to Use
To Use GladRags Washable Menstrual Pads:
1. Place 1 or 2 of the inserts inside the holder.
2. Turn your GladRag over. Snap it around your underwear. The tag side goes next to your underwear and the smooth side goes next to your body.
3. Change your GladRag (holder and inserts) about as often as you would change a disposable pad.
4. Follow care instructions for washing.
Cleaning & Care
After use, separate the inserts from the holder. Soak in cold water to help prevent staining. Adding an enzyme cleaner to the soaking water may help protext against staining. Machine wash cold and tumble dry low using natural soap or detergent; please do not use chlorine bleach. You may hand wash pads if desired. Remove pads from dryer promptly and store flat to eliminate wrinkling; use cool iron if desired. Store your pads in a clean, dry area.
When away from home, place your used pads in a GladRags Carry Bag or Wet Bag until you return home, then wash per care instructions.
How does the Night Pad work?
This pad is longer and wider to provide more coverage while you are lying down. In addition to the terry cloth in the inserts, the night pad holder has a layer of terry cloth throughout so you get extra protection. It's wonderful to go to bed and rest assured that you're covered! The night pad can be used as a postpartum pad and some of our customers with larger bodies or heavier flows use it during the day.
Are GladRags comfortable?
Yes! All cotton GladRags are soft and breathable, which is so much better than plastic pads that can chafe and irritate your skin.
Our customer Nicole had this to say about trying GladRags:
“I just wanted to send you a line of appreciation. I love Glad Rags. I just started to use them. I cannot believe I waited this long! I am sold!! I am a lifer now. They are so comfortable and easy on my skin. I love how they feel like regular clothing. It is like nothing is there.”
If you are raw and irritated at the end of your period, please know that it does not have to be that way! With all of our pads you will experience the comfort and breatheability of cotton. The soft flannel conforms to your body without the twisting and bunching up that can happen with disposables. And because there is no plastic backing you will have less chafing and irritation. One of our customers reports they're much cooler too (she's from Phoenix, she would know).
Are GladRags good for postpartum (after giving birth)?
Yes - the night pads are especially great for postpartum. While many new moms find they need a large amount of GladRags or pads to carry them through postpartum, any amount of reusable pads would be helpful. They are softer and kinder than plastic on your skin. Some women place their inserts in the freezer after dipping them in witch hazel. The cool inserts soothe and help your tender parts heal.
Our customer, Mary, had this to say about GladRags:
“Thought I'd let you know that I love my GladRags. I've had them for at least 10 years and they're still going strong! I've used them post-partum after having our three children, and not just in the conventional way. I made a tea of healing herbs and put some on my liners and popped them in the freezer...they were a welcome bottom-soother after delivery!”

Very Beneficial for Postpartum Comfort & Recovery!
By: Eyelyn from Amarillo, TX US on September 18, 2012
"I made the switch to cloth before I became pregnant, so I knew I wanted to use cloth after birth. This kit has been blessing to my postpartum recovery. The Natural Nipple Butter is WONDERFUL for soothing the soreness and cracking that accompanied my first week of nursing, and it is toxin free! The Bath Herbs were an excellent for decreasing the discomfort from swelling and minor tear that occurred during delivery. The Organic Postpartum pads were incredibly absorbent and comfortable. I had no issues with leaking whatsoever. I didn't find a use for the hankies...but they are SO soft, I'm sure I'll find a use for them yet! The only item in the kit I had issues with were the nursing pads. The serged stitching on the edges made the nursing pads incredibly itchy, and were more irritating than comfortable. Otherwise, I highly recommend this kit to expecting mamas!"
