    I’ve just started using CSP during my first period in 2 years (pregnancy and breastfeeding). Would love to try out some different types.


  2. Gillian Nowill says:

    I love cloth pads. So comfy, no nasty chemicals, and they look so much prettier!


  3. Theresa says:

    I’ve not got much experience of cloth pads (due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, then pregnant again!) but once my periods return I’d love to make the switch full time as cloth pads seem so comfortable and so much better to have against your skin than disposables.


  4. Bibiana Gomez Crespo says:

    We are using cloth nappies and we love it. I want to try to advantages of cloth in my own skin.


  5. Abigail Gilby says:

    Oo, smashing prize. Love to try these pads. Have used CSP for over a year. Wouldn’t go back to disposables now!


  6. Jackie says:

    I hate the feel and smell of disposables, and they are so disastrous for the environment, so I am hoping to make the switch to reusables. Hopefully it will be a good example for my daughter for when the time comes for her too!


  7. Che Greig says:

    I haven’t tried reusable pads yet, but my daughter is in full time cloth nappies and I use a reusable menstrual cup during my periods, so cloth pads would be a very welcome (and less wasteful) addition.


  8. Charly says:

    I’m due my first baby in Feb and have been thinking about converting to csp for a while. I’ve stashed up on post partum pads but I’m entering the 30+ weeks poor pelvic floor stage so something to deal with that would be great to avoid a moment in Pilates! 🙂


  9. Vicki Browning says:

    I love my cloth pads because I don’t need to buy myself pads each month, I’m saving money and there’s less waste going to landfill.


  10. Liz Clark says:

    Personally I’m a mooncup user but need to get a set of csp for my eldest girl ready for when the time comes


  11. Suzy Hardy says:

    Looking for options for my daughters when the time comes, I use a moon cup but not sure they will be ready for this at first so think reusable pads could be a great alternative.


  12. Suzy Hardy says:

    Would love these for my oldest daughter I’m looking for options for her when her periods arrive. I use a mooncup but not sure she will be ready for this at first and cloth seems a fab alternative. Then she can tell her three sisters all about cloth when their turns come!


  13. Emma clarke says:

    Used to use a mooncup before baby and havent been able to use since due to problems. Would love to try reusable as use washable nappies for my children. X


  14. jammydays says:

    I have a couple of csps already, but would love a couple more to be able to switch over permanently!


  15. Discovered CSP in 2004 and haven’t looked back, never thought I’d love wearing a sanitary pad, but reusables changed my mind completely. Would love to try something new.


  16. Fiona says:

    I love using csp as I find them far more comfortable than disposables with the added bonus of less waste going to landfill.


  17. Missy says:

    Spiffing marvellous things these reusable thingamabobs. Top notch on the jolly old environment, and comfy on my whatnot. Especially marvellous at catching the odd little mishap, such as when one sneezes at the village fete and risks causing a tidal wave at the duck race.


  18. Katie Rothwell says:

    I’ve just started using reusable pads and I’d love to try some more types.


  19. Sarah spragg says:

    Csp is so much more comfortable and reliable tgan disposables and saving 30-40 pads each month from landfill is s plus!


  20. Mia says:

    I’ve been using cloth nappies on my daughter for six months now, and although I’m still breastfeeding my periods have just returned with a vengeance so I’d like to use cloth pads myself too! I was a mooncup user pre-baby but not quite as confident using it after such a long break. I don’t want to have to use disposable pads!


  21. Luna Lyall says:

    I’m 37 weeks pregnant at the moment and my Doula has recommended I switch to cloth reusable pads, especially for straight after giving birth!

    Being pregnant has put me back in a wheelchair and I’m now temporarily bed bound because of my physical disabilities, I also have Aspergers Syndrome (a form of autism) which comes with sensory problems. I can’t stand disposable products because of the feel and smell of them and being in my chair or stuck in bed all the time, the disposable products get very uncomfortable!!

    I have to admit, I’m a bit of a eco-warrior and love to recycle whatever possible (including rain water for the toilets) so using reusuable sanitary products is something I’m definitely keen to try!


  22. janineh13 says:

    I would love to win as I have been thinking about trying reusables for a while now. We have loved using cloth nappies so much this year with our first baby that I know cloth pads will be so much better than disposables. Fingers crossed!


  23. Nena Horgan says:

    I would love to try washable pads as they look so much comfier, prettier and are lots better for the environment.


  24. shaydini88 says:

    I like the fact I know my CSP have no nasties hiding in them- and I’d love to try these beauty’s, having used TotsBots nappies for my little fella I’m confident they’ll be top notch products!


  25. Lottie B says:

    I use cloth pads as a back up to my mooncup. I love how comfortable they are, how I never run out and how environmentally friendly they are.


  26. Nique Ford says:

    I’ve loved using cloth nappies and am looking forward to trying csp when aunt Flo returns.


  27. Naomi says:

    CSP have made what used to be a nightmare time of the month so much more comfortable, economical and earth friendly! I’d love to try something new 🙂


  28. Cassandra Aitchison says:

    I’ve never used cloth pads before but I’ve spoken to several people who do and i would like to try we cloth bum for baby and toddler so why not cloth Mum too plus I love saying cloth Mum 😂


  29. Claire Rich says:

    I’ve just started using CSP 4 weeks ago as I figured it makes sense alongside the birth of my daughter, who is straight into tots bots cloth nappies. I love the comfort and the reduction in waste, and would love to try out Bloom and Nora pads as I’ve only tried some big maxi pads so far!


  30. A Kruger says:

    I love my cloth pads, they are so comfy. 🙂


  31. Jen says:

    I really hate the idea of all those pads going to landfill every month. I bought a mooncup and wanted to love it but it was painful so was left a bit downhearted. As a single mum I don’t have a lot of spare money so haven’t invested in cloth pads yet but would love to try them (yes I know they’re cheaper in the long run but at 89p a pack of disposable ones it’s a but of an outlay). These were recommended on a forum I read and look brilliant so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.


  32. Bryony says:

    I use cloth nappies on my little girl as I don’t like the feel of disposable pads on my skin and I’m sure disposable nappies feel similar!

    However, now I’m blessed with her in my life, I of course feel guilty about spending money on myself, so a kickstart to my own stash would be wonderful!


  33. Lauren dyke says:

    Using cloth nappies, has made me very aware of hiw many chemicals are in disposables nappies . I then couldn’t look at disposable sanitary towels the same way, 1 cycle in csp and i’m a total convert already!


  34. Ellie Stanley Aston says:

    My daughter is full time in cloth nappies and I use only ethical products around the house and beauty products. Disposable sanitary towels are the last thing I need to make the switch to and would love to try bloom and Nora!

  35. Amy Moore says:

    I’m a huge lover of cloth nappies and starting my own nappy library in the new year. Have tried moon cups a few times bug ready to take the next step to cloth sanitary products.


  36. Sarah says:

    We use cloth nappies and I’d love to try reusables for me to reduce how much we send to landfill, and of course, save a few pennies in the process!


  37. Vicky W says:

    Cloth pads are much more comfy and natural. Its hard to find something that fits well though, I would always like to try a different type.


  38. Catherine says:

    I have been wanting to switch to reusable pads for sometime, but have been hesitant due to the fact that I have no washing facilities & use a laundrette. Now it’s time to stop being worried about what others may think & be proud to use a product that benefits both my own health & the environment around me.


  39. Rachel F says:

    After having my baby, I’ve found that disposable sanitary pads really irritate me. I’d love to try cloth.


  40. Rachel F says:

    Since having my baby, I’ve found that disposable sanitary pads really irritate me. I’d love to try cloth.


  41. Amy Moore says:

    My daughter is in full time cloth but I haven’t made the leap yet. Would love to have a good excuse to start though!
