great except already needs new snap
they’re great! Only thing is that one of the snaps already stopped working after less than a year—it doesn’t really stay snapped, just falls back apart. But these are about 3x as absorbent as my 15-yr older gladrags, which is great, and so I keep using them, just have to be careful they don’t fall out!
Hi Katherine, We're so sorry that you got a defective snap! It's rare, but it happens, and we can absolutely replace the affected pad. Thank you for letting us know, and for the encouraging feedback!
These pads are so comfortable! They breathe so much better than disposable pads, so I don’t feel all sweaty and uncomfortable throughout the day. I love that I am doing my part to reduce waste, but I am not sacrificing my comfort either. Would definitely recommend!!
I really wanted to like them
I was getting fed up with having to buy and waste so many pads that I finally decided to try reusable ones. I liked that these are made of just organic cotton. Unfortunately they felt a bit too bulky for me, but if I were to take out the extra layer I would bleed right through. Wearing a wad of dry fabric is just too uncomfortable for me, plus I was worried about it bulging out and being noticeable if I'm wearing pants. I am a bit disappointed and will probably only use these as a backup to wear at home on my lighter days. Sorry, just had to be honest.
Sensitive Skin Saver
I bought six of these to give them a good, honest try through my April cycle last year and will never go back to disposables. My initial mission was to reduce the waste I was producing. Mission accomplished. I am also very, very pleased to have found that these don't irritate my eczema prone skin nearly as much as plastic backed disposables did. I would recommend these to everyone who uses pads just for being so darn comfy and breathable. Thank you, GladRags! <3
Tried and true for over 20 years!
I have had a set of organic unbleached Glad Rags in all the sizes for over 20 years and they are still holding up to monthly use. I am SO glad I invested in them way back when! Over time, most of the covers have developed some staining but I keep that to a minimum by soaking them in cold water right away, and sometimes adding Biokleen Bac-Out directly to the stain or to the laundry. Hanging them out on the line in the bright summer sun also fades the staining. They are not as soft as they once were but I don't mind that or how they look, since I am basically the only one who sees them. They serve their purpose. I have never had a leak through to clothing and I love how much money and landfill space I have saved over the years. They have more than paid for themselves. In fact, now that I am approaching menopause, I wish there were a way I could pass my set on to some girl or woman somewhere in the world who can't afford menstrual products. I highly recommend Glad Rags and specifically, the unbleached organic cotton kind, to anyone!
