When did we become so entrenched in our values of convenience and so disconnected with our own waste? Maxi pads and tampons are all disposable, so we don't have to ever look at them. Yet, they are expensive and they accumulate and add to our massive human waste stream. Glad rags should be on shelves everywhere. After use, just soak, scrub, and rinse. It dries in a few hours. I switch between two rags - it's the best and most convenient thing ever!
I have been using Glad Rags pads and liners for over ten years. I am thoroughly satisfied with their product! I am happy about how many pads have been kept out of landfills and how much healthier the products are for me than commercially available disposable pads. Thank you for your continued excellence in providing a great product that is good for women and the environment!
The title says it all - this is the best overnight/postpartum pad I have used. It has the best coverage by far of any other brand out there - cloth or disposable! The customizable absorbency combined with pre-set-up convenience (you can "assemble" the pad ahead of time so you're not juggling loose pieces while you're sitting on the toilet in a public restroom!) are an added bonus. When I used these after my children were born, after using disposables for a couple of days, these were such a welcome relief - so much more comfortable and breathable!!
I have used this product for years and am so happy that it is still made to the same high standards as in previous years. I literally wear my Gladrags out -- after many years and multiple wearings and washings, they had finally become a bit threadbare, so I had to replace the holders. My new ones are as wonderful as the old ones (and in a cool print) and I plan to wear these out, too.
I started out with a few all organic cotton pads some 6 years ago and my stash is growing into a beautiful rainbow. Love these pads. Love the contact with the routines of life and getting back to basics. The Overnight Pads make me feel secure that I won't leak--a major problem I had as a kid. Love being able to just purchase the holders as I made the mistake of using hydrogen peroxide bleach one time and totally destroyed my pads.
I was so excited to be able to purchase just the holder as I seem to have compiled a stash of inserts. They somehow got missed on the order, but customer service was AWESOME, shipped them immediately with a note and gift.
I love Gladrags because they can be put together with just the right thickness ahead of time, so I'm not juggling loose pieces in the bathroom. Now that my original pads are ten years old, I've found that the absorbent liners are mostly in great shape, but some of the holders were worn out, so it's great to be able to replace just the holders. Some other brands of pads have slightly softer fabric (although the newer Gladrags are softer than the older ones I have,) but I appreciate the quick on and off of the design and great absorbency, and find myself reaching for these first.
I discovered Glad Rags after the birth of my first child 12 years ago and I am so happy to have ditched disposable pantyliners from that point. Glad Rags are economical, safe and earth-friendly. I will continue to use them until menopause (and beyond then, if needed).
I love these. I have been using them for over 12 years. I would not use anything else. I have tried other companies tat make similar products, but they don't last. The snaps wear out. NOT with glad rags, they sat forever and once u get a routine set for cleaning and caring for them, it is so easy. Saves money and very earth friendly.
For my very first order on gladrags dot com website, these were one of the first item(s) that I selected along with an overnight pad which fits snugly and doesnt move around while you are sleeping, leaving you wondering what you will wake up to in the morning worrying! Id like to add that all the pad products Ive used (havent tried cups yet but will soon) since a few months ago all fit snug and yet are not one bit bulky nor uncomfortable even when wearing them jogging during the 90 degree summer heat. Ultra comfortable and ultra protection is a definite when I use these as back up and the others I ordered too. I also ADORE the ton of different styles/designs they give you to choose from, I had trouble picking out which 2 or 3 I wanted the most LOL no joke! Id say by the end of the year Ill have em all though! :)
