Our mission is to help make periods more comfortable by providing high quality, sustainable menstrual products. And we’re committed to helping you find the right reusable products for you. We’re here to help!
GladRags cloth pads are designed to be comfortable and effective for most bodies. And while we’re confident that you’re going to love your new reusable period products, we offer you this Period Pledge: If after a few cycles and assistance from the GladRags team, our reusable pads are not meeting your menstrual needs, please contact us for store credit or a refund. (Some restrictions apply, please see below for details.)
Before getting started with your new GladRags cloth pads, please read these tips to make sure you have the best experience possible:
We recommend washing your products before use. However, if you are using GladRags for the first time, please wash and try one pad only to be sure that you are satisfied before washing your whole order. Only never-washed, never-used GladRags pads may be returned for a refund or store credit.
Menstrual cups may come with a learning curve (so did using a tampon for the first time!). XO Flo is designed to be simple to use, comfortable, and effective, however, it can take a few cycles for some bodies to find the most comfortable, leak-free positioning. We recommend wearing a pantyliner as back-up until you feel confident. Please get in touch if you need any guidance. As of 2/21/23, all XO Flo cups are final sale. This means that while we are happy to assist you with using your cup for the best possible experience, we cannot provide any refunds or replacements.
