Reusable sanitary pads are a bit like reusable wipes - once you've tried them you'll wish you'd swapped earlier.
The simple answer is, YES...
If you suffer intense pain during your period and are using disposables, reusable sanitary pads are definitely worth considering. Disposable pads use plastics, which block airflow and not surprisingly, can encourage a painful rash.
The good news is cloth pads tend to say fresher than disposable pads. That’s because their fabric breathes which allows moisture to evaporate. Less moisture means fewer bacteria to produce unwanted smells.
It's estimated that the typical woman uses more than 11k feminine hygiene products in her lifetime. The plastic in a pad will take hundreds of years to decompose, not to mention some end up blocking our waterway systems and the cost of 11k products!
