the Perfect Pad
I first tried GladRags pads many years ago. I have tried other brands since then, but these are the ones I reach for most often. They are totally comfortable, they feel just like any organic cotton underwear. I recently joined the club where they mail a pad every month, to stock up on the undyed organic version. I was also pleasantly surprised that, with the Buncha Farmers stain remover, the blood completely washes out! Of course, my oldest pads are stained, and they still work perfectly fine. But I'm trying to keep the new white ones a little more pristine. So far, so good. Great product!
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
