Wonderful - easy to wash by hand and hang to dry. Love not contributing to plastic watste.
love the organic pantyliners
I love the organic pantyliners. I find they stay put with well-fitting pants, snapped around my cotton Jockey panties. When I use the restroom I can pull them forward or backward, if needed, but usually only 1/4 inch or so. They are very comfortable. At night I take them off, drip some Biokleen ensyme solution on the dirty areas and set them aside, take my shower, then wash them out under the sink with a little soap, rubbing the dirty area together with other areas of the cloth liners. I rinse and squeeze them out, hang to dry and then put in the laundry basket. I wash them in the machine inside a lingerie mesh thing, on cold, with the rest of my white clothes, using Trader Joe's laundry soap, no bleach, and then dry them in a dryer (inside the mesh) long enough to get them a bit dry. I don't want to shrink them or distort their shape, so I pull them back into shape at the edges and iron them. I hang them up to dry completely. I REALLY LIKE them! They are substantial, yet soft and so much better than adding to the landfill! I tried the Pantyliner Plus, but like the smaller pantyliners better. I am a senior in menopause and use them for normal drips and stains.
really happy with these little guys!
I really have liked using these pantiliners, so much better than disposable. Someone else mentioned they ran into the pantiliner slipping around. I had that problem as well and was very frustrated about it until I remembered that safety pins exist and that has worked great for me. I also have only used the organic cotton so I can't weigh in on which I like more, but I can't complain about the organic version. They do stain a bit if you use them on heavier days but I'm not bothered by it personally.
Great substitution, but needs a non-slip design somehow
I'm happy to be a part of the no-menstruation waste movement. However, these pantyliners also slip to the back after I walked a distance. So I keep having to pull it forward each time I go to the rest room. Perhaps there needs to be a non-slip gel/material, or an underwear that pairs with the pantyliners?
Save Money & Mother Earth
I have been exclusively using a menstrual cup for years. After having a child, I found I needed a little extra protection as my periods were heavier. I bought all the GladRags pad sizes to have the option to forego the menstrual cup if I wanted for a period cycle. They are all wonderful! I don't wear the liners with silky underwear as they slide a little. They don't slide on cotton underwear. The organic cotton pads are SO COMFORTABLE! I will be using these for my second child postpartum instead of the disposable pads from the hospital. Thank you GladRags for making such a wonderful product that I will use for years and prevent unnecessary waste to be sent to the landfill.
