Reusable/Store Bought

Store Bought Pads and Liners.
Almost all store bought sanitary napkins and tampons are made with bleached rayon, cotton and plastic. These products leave behind fibers that can cause bladder and vaginal infections and toxic shock syndrome. Tampons are also known to absorb the natural fluids and bacteria that the vagina produces to stay clean and healthy. Let’s look at the #1 ingredient in generic tampons and sanitary napkins: Rayon. Rayon is a fiber that is made from cellulose fibers. Cellulose is a natural fiber, but to produce Rayon chemical procedures are needed that include: carbon disulphide, sulfuric acid, chlorine and caustic soda. Side effects from exposure to too much Rayon can include: nausea, vomiting, chest pain, headaches and many others. Rayon is not just found in tampons and pads, but a lot of clothes are made from it as well. Sanitary napkins also contain quite a bit of plastic, which does not allow sufficient air flow ‘down there’ so in turn can also cause an array of infections. Tampons and pads are also bleached using chlorine, which results in the production of dioxin, which is linked to breast cancer, endometriosis, immune system suppression and various other ailments.

Dr. Philip M. Tierno Jr., director of clinical microbiology and immunology at the New York University Medical Center helped determine that tampons were behind toxic shock syndrome (TSS) cases in the early 1980s. He blames this on the introduction of higher-absorbency tampons in 1978, as well as the relatively recent decision by manufacturers to recommend that tampons can be worn overnight for increased incidences of toxic shock syndrome. Materials used in most modern tampons are so highly absorbent that they pose the risk of absorbing the vagina's natural discharge and upsetting its natural moisture balance, which is what enables toxic shock syndrome to occur.

Reusable Pads and Liners
Our cloth pads and liners on the other hand,are washable, reusable, beautiful, good for the earth and you. In our modern age there are many reasons to purchase washable, reusable feminine napkins.  The convenience of a reusable product is wonderful.  No more wandering the aisle of your local grocery store trying to find the one you like the best. No more realizing a little too late that you are out of pads.  For those of us with daughters, it is a huge benefit for each girl to have her own "stash".  No more "Sorry Mom, I used the last one and forgot to tell you!".  The benefit of convenience is only the beginning. 

For those of you concerned with being good stewards of your resources, washable pads are truly the answer.  You will no longer be throwing bio-hazardous materials into the landfills (along with non-biodegradable plastics), and you will realize the benefits of being a good steward of your financial resources. The estimate for a woman to spend on feminine napkins over her lifetime is $7,670.00!  Our estimate for washable napkins is that a woman will need 3 sets for a lifetime, at an estimated cost of $330.00 - that is a savings of almost $7,350.00.  Incredible!  Those estimates are for one woman. The numbers go up with each daughter. 

Further benefits are somewhat subjective, but many women have found them to be true.  Those benefits are no more itching and a reduced number of days for their monthly cycles!

Last, but definitely not least, is the preparedness aspect of reusable feminine napkins.  Have you thought of the consequences of not being able to purchase disposable feminine hygiene products?  None of us wants to experience that situation - but it is a definite possibility.  Economic collapse, natural disasters, personal change of circumstances are all factors that could necessitate changes in the way we live.  Now is the time to become prepared - before you NEED to be!
