Every month, women do bulk shopping for toiletries that last the entire menstrual cycle. These include period underwear, tampons, menstrual pads and pantyliners for those light days at the start and end of your cycle. But still, the question remains: how harmful are these menstrual cycle toiletries to the environment?
We've all heard it before, but here's a reality check: regular sanitary napkins take nearly 800 years to decompose. And, given India's female population, this means that our landfills are collecting more plastic than can be properly disposed of. However, if we make sustainable choices, such as switching to cloth pads, it will benefit you as well as the environment. Continue reading to learn more about the advantages of cloth period pads and why you should switch from disposable to reusable cloth pads for your periods.
5 Reasons Why You Should Switch To Reusable Cloth Pads
Cloth menstrual pads are lovely because they are soft against your skin, and you hardly notice you're wearing a pad; therefore, to learn more about the benefits of cloth period pads like these, we have listed below the 5 strong reasons why you should switch to reusable cloth pads.
1. Protects Your Vargina
Regular sanitary napkins available today contain plastic and other synthetic fibers such as rayon, as well as chemicals in the form of gels and perfumes, which cause rashes and infections while also blocking airflow to your vagina. These materials are responsible for the itchiness you experience during your period. In comparison, SuperBottoms Flow Lock Cloth Pads are made of natural fabrics that are completely safe, healthy, and stress-free for your body and the environment.
Did you know that switching from disposable to reusable sanitary products can save you up to Rs.80,000 over the course of your life? That's a lot of money being saved and ending up in landfills.
The first pack of flow lock reusable cloth pads might feel a little expensive but since you can wash, dry, and reuse them for a long time because they are reusable, you only spend a little money each month on a new pack of pads.
3. Easy To Clean
Most women believe that washing cloth menstrual pads will be a hassle and will necessitate a lot of hygienic maintenance, so they opt for disposable pads without considering how much it harms them.
However, it is not true because washing reusable cloth pads for periods is very simple; all you need to do is thoroughly clean them with clean cold water because hot water sets in stains. If there is a stain, soak them first, or rinse immediately after removal.

4. Outperforms Disposable Sanitary Pads
Reusable cloth pads outperform disposable pads in terms of performance and comfort. Reusable menstrual pads are soft, lovely, and do not have sticky wings, so you can take a sigh of relief. Apart from that, cloth period pads are better for sensitive skin than disposables because they are made of recognisable fabrics. SuperBottoms flow lock cloth pads are made of soft and breathable cotton, allowing air to circulate freely around your nether regions.
Cloth pads also keep these areas moist, as opposed to regular tampons and pads, which suck all moisture from the vagina, leaving it dry and vulnerable to vaginal infections.
One of our main concerns when using menstrual pads is that they don't leak, but with cloth pads, you don't have to worry because flow-lock cloth pads last for 7-8 hours. Designed to absorb twice as much as regular cloth pads, it comes with a secure leak lock for no leaks. Plus, when combined with Max absorb period underwear, it makes your period even less stressful because these period underwears are an innovative, comfortable, and hassle-free replacement for wearing extras like tampons or menstrual cups during your period.
1. Environment-Friendly: Regular sanitary napkins decompose in nearly 800 years, whereas cloth menstrual pads are entirely made of natural materials and can be reused, so they do not contribute to landfill waste.
2. High Savings: Since you don't have to buy cloth pads for heavy periods every month because it's a one-time purchase, you save a lot of money in the long run.
3. Sensitive on Skin: Cloth period pads are better for sensitive skin than disposables because they are made of recognisable fabrics.
