Not sure if reusable menstrual pads will work well for you? Unsure which pad size to use and when? Our starter kits are great way to find out!
What's included in this set?
- 3 x standard sized black pads, approx. 10" long - ideal for regular flow and daily use: the longer length offers increased coverage for added security and increased absorbency.
Our reusable menstrual pad starter sets are a great introduction to zero waste periods, helping you to save money and have a more eco-friendly time of the month. Each set comes with a welcome leaflet with more information on your reusable pads, including care instructions. The pads are made from fluffy white bamboo terry with a waterproof PUL fabric backing in black.
NOTE: The white toweling goes against your skin, and the black side against your underwear. Reusable menstrual pads don't have the adhesive strip of disposable pads, so they need to be used slightly differently. The type of underwear you wear them with can make all the difference for helping to keep them in place without glue! Choose close fitting, wide gusset underwear which the pad can snugly wrap around to keep it in place. This is explained really well in this introductory guide to using reusable pads.
All Battle Green products are sent using biodegradable, plastic-free packing materials.
Regular Reusable Menstrual Pads Kit - 3 Pack
Why make the switch to reusable pads?
Each set of pads comes with a recycled cardboard sleeve with the following care instructions. Please leave us a note at checkout if you do not need the cardboard sleeve and we won't include it with your order.
REUSABLE PADS CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Fold the soiled pad in half and place in a wet bag until you are ready to wash at the end of your period. You may want to use a net bag to keep the pads together in the wash. Do a cold rinse cycle first, before adding in some laundry detergent. Do not use fabric softener as this can make the pads repel liquid. Wash at 40ºC and air dry (you can tumble dry but this may slightly reduce the lifespan of the pads, and cause minor shrinkage). To minimise staining, you can use a natural stain remover such as baking soda. Sunlight is also a free, eco-friendly stain remover!
