Years ago.... women didnt have sanitary pads, or tampons, or mooncups, or even eco shaped sanitary pads. All they had were squares of muslin. Im not knocking eco sanitary products, they are fantastic and well done to any company that makes them, I am just saying that there is a really easy cheap alternative!
Practically every mother in the country has used muslin squares for their babies, and did you know you can use them for you too! Perfect recycling! You just fold them in half, then keep refolding them to make a pad shape. Pop them in your knickers and Bobs your uncle! They will mould to your shape, and are soft, breathable, absorbant and comfortable. Best of all, just pop the soiled ones into the washing machine with your standard whites to clean. They dry really quickly too, unlike some thick pads.
If you have really heavy periods you can fold them to make a thicker pad at the front, they are so adaptable. If you have a few hanging around the house, reduntant now your babies have grown, give them a second life!
Any other sanitary suggestions? Please post below to share!!!
