    Wow, never thought I’d see others blog posting on this but hey, its 2008 and the green waves have hit everybody. I’ve been using cloth pads for about 4 1/2 years and I’m never going back to those perfume disposable ones.

    While women are going to cloth pads, make sure you switch your kids over to cloth diapers too!

    I too switched over several years ago. I am discouraged by how many of my friends find it ‘gross’. I’ve stopped trying to convert friends. Great post.

    great post! i just hope that lunapads will soon be available here. my mom used cloth pads before, i have never tried that but i think it’s about time i do. thanks for the info.

    Great post! Several years ago I graduated to organic, unbleached pads and tampons. It’s a good option, but they are still disposable. Luna pads are on my shopping list!

    I tried the diva cups and just couldn’t get into them… they always felt uncomfortable, no matter how many different ways I tried moving them around. I would really like to find unbleached tampons, though.

    Great post!

  6. You get an A+ in headline writing! I loved it.

    More, thank you for this post. I have also heard that when you clean your reusable pads, soak them in cold water first. Then you can use that water on your houseplants, if it doesn’t put you over the top in the gross factor. I think I’d be able to handle it.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Lunapads indeed are nice.But i wouldn’t blame women who still prefer the pads and tampons.Me and my friends use the diva cup and we also make sure to wear our period panties so that we are not surprised with stains.Comfortable period is the word.
