Measures 6 3/4" long by 2 3/4" wide when snapped around your underwear.
Slim and absorbent, the one-piece GladRags Pantyliner is perfect for light everyday protection or as back-up for your menstrual cup or sea sponge tampon. This breathable, all-cotton pantyliner is so comfortable you’ll hardly know you’re wearing one! GladRags are made to last for years, so you’ll save money and help the environment.
How to Use
To Use GladRags Washable Menstrual Pads:
1. Turn your GladRags Pantyliner over. Snap it around your underwear. The tag side goes next to your underwear and the smooth side goes next to your body.
2. Change your pantyliner about as often as you would change a disposable pantyliner.
3. Follow care instructions for washing.
Cleaning & Care
Soak in cold water to help prevent staining. Adding an enzyme cleaner to the soaking water may help protect 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.
Cotton flannel, cotton terrycloth, organic cotton care label, nickel-free snap.
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).
Where are GladRags made?
GladRags are manufactured in Portland, Oregon, USA.
Sometimes people ask us why we don't manufacture in another country in order to lower our prices. We believe that keeping manufacturing local and within the United States is important to our economic security as a nation, and we like that we have full control over our facilities to ensure that GladRags are made in a safe environment where workers are treated fairly. Plus, keeping manufacturing local keeps our environmental footprint lower by reducing our shipping needs.
Do GladRags cost more than disposables?
No, they're actually much less expensive. When compared to the amount of money spent on disposables, it only takes a few years to make up the cost of your GladRags. They are made to last 5+ years. Many women tell us they still use the same pads they bought when we started in 1993! Think of this: it would be tremendously expensive (not to mention wasteful!) to continuously re-stock our kitchens with disposable paper plates, so we buy plates that we can use indefinitely. We make an initial investment into something reusable that will last a long time. It's the same idea with GladRags!

"I have used Gladrags for years! They are wonderful. They are long lasting, and launder beautifully.
When you think of all the women in the world if they would all use Gladrags the landfills would shrink.
If you decide to give them a try I am certain that you
will not go back to disposable pads (unless perhaps on a camping trip or a long airplane flight)! Enjoy!"
I will use GladRags and M.Cups throughout my whole life
By: Grace from Cambridge, AK US on January 12, 2013
"I have been a GladRags customer for years now and if there is one thing i can count on from your company is constant satisfaction. I am a midwife-in-training and have felt a compassion for the womans spirit and phase changes my whole life. When it comes to cloth pads nothing is like them! they defiantly take practice and getting used to (just like the menstral cups) but once you find a home for them in your heart, you free yourself from chemicals in other disposable pads, the *crinkle* *crinkle* women who wear paper-y pads get, and a whole lot more. I have also noticed the panty liners shape seems a little bigger, its a little more coverage in the right places!"

"I got these pantyliners at the same time that I bought my first Mooncup. They are so much better than using a pad! They are easy to clean, and awesome. I love my Mooncup, but sometimes I also need pantyliners. I ordered more of these because they are so great. I recommend these to anyone and everyone. They are very absorbent. I rinse and soak them in cold water and then throw them in the wash and they come out like new! A definite must-have!"
Love these pads but snap is on the wrong side
By: Diedre McHugh from Cuyahoga Falls, OH US on August 28, 2012
"Glad rags have saved my life. I became allergic to the adhesive on regular disposable pads and heard a podcast that recommended your pads. After having mine for a few years I thought I'd get a few different colors to mix things up. I'm left handed. All of my old pads closed on the same side. This new shipment close on the other side. It's just me I know but I don't like switching back and forth, it's awkward. And if I use them so they fasten on the correct side I feel like I am wearing them upside down (even though there really isn't an upside down but the tag is the wrong way). That's the only reason I gave them 4 out of 5 stars."

pantyliners are great
By: Kristeen from Amherst, MA US on October 14, 2012
"My teenage daughter has adapted to using the Gladrag pantyliners instead of the plastic disposable one. We feel good about being green. She also likes how they feel soft. I just wish you had long size pantyliners so I could use them too."

good, but the pads are better
By: anole from Bowling Green, KY US on October 2, 2012
"Very comfortable and easy to clean. My only complaint is that the liners slide around -- the snap keeps them attached to your panties, but they can still slip a couple inches in either direction, leading to a few leaks! The pad stays in place much better. "
Great for the Environment, Great to Use
By: Butterfly89 from O'CONNOR , ACT AU on September 8, 2012
"The cloth panty liner is great to use. The soft fabric that the panty liner is made of makes it very comfortable. It is very easy to wash, just rinse in cold water to get off any excess blood and then throw it in the washing. I feel very happy using the cloth panty liner as I know no toxic chemicals are leaching from panty liner to my skin.
The only downside to the product is the cost of shipping (international shipping) which is quite steep considering is takes so long for the product to arrive."
By: Melisa from Ashland, OR US on October 17, 2012
"I have used Gladrags day pads for 15 years and night pads for almost 11 years. I discovered the pantyliners a little over a year ago and I love them. They are the perfect size, soft, comfortable, easy, and I feel great about using reusables. I have converted many friends and coworkers to Gladrags. I cannot say enough good things! "
