Regular washable sanitary pad

Medium-sized, reusable pad. Our regular washable sanitary pad is a great reusable choice for your period. Absorbent enough to cope with a heavy to medium flow. This pad can be used for most days in your period.  Choosing washable, menstrual products means that you are helping the environment. This also ensures that there are no chemicals next to your delicate skin.

Easy to care for

Our regular washable sanitary pad is topped with soft microfleece. This fabric not only feels nice against the skin, but it also acts as a stay-dry layer. The microfleece allows liquid to pass through easily into the centre of the pad, but the fabric does not feel wet against the skin.  This, along with the fact that the pads are breathable, means that there is less chance of irritation.

We recommend washing in cold water, to prevent stains from setting.  You can soak after use and before washing in a tub with cold water and salt to help prevent stains. If you prefer then you can use your usual washing detergent.


The regular washable sanitary pad is backed with PUL. This acts as a waterproof layer, which means that moisture will not pass through onto your underwear.

The pads come with a choice of

  • dark pink
  • light pink
  • red
  • yellow

Each pad has two snap settings to ensure a comfortable and secure fit into your underwear to prevent slipping.  The centre of the pad is microfibre which is absorbent and yet also fast drying.

These pads measure approximately 25 cm long by 10 cm wide, not including the wings.

    Thanks, they’re comfortable but they do fall off/go out of place if I don’t turn the side of the pad with the label tab the other way which is where my front passage is but other than that it is still good to use and is still a lot better than using disposable pads!! And they aren’t too hot down there they feel just like disposable pads but a lot more comfy and doesn’t cause discomfort like the normal ones do 🙂

    These are amazing, SO much better than disposables, very soft and plush feeling, easy enough to clean, although not a fan of the white coloured lining, does show stains even washing and soaking immediately after use.

    Love the colors and the fabric feels soft, warm and comfortable. Amazingly pleasant to sleep with and no more movement than a normal pad. Will be interested to see if they feel to warm for summer time use (time shall tell).

    These are fairly big and thick but I actually really like that about them. They feel a lot more snug than some of the thinner cotton pads that I’ve tried. Best of all it feels dry compared to disposables which always felt sweaty and gross. I noticed that it didn’t seem to have that unpleasant odor as much either.

    You might think they’d shift about, but let’s be honest, the self-adhesive disposables also shift about and with these washables, if they do move, at least you won’t have sticky bits sticking where you wouldn’t like it! I found them soft, comfortable, they felt dry and I didn’t have any major “shifting” issues. Easy to care for as well; rinse them in the sink with cold water and throw them in the wash once a day. If you’re used to ultrathin disposables or not wearing a pad, you’ll notice these but only at first; they’re thinner than I thought they’d be. Also, great service and superfast delivery; really, you gotta try them.

    Amazing product! I bought these, the cup and the liners about 2 years ago now and haven’t stopped using them since. I much prefer using these over the gross one use pads, and it’s nice knowing I never have to go to the store and buy more pads, as I always have them at home. Have recommended to my family, and would recommend you buying them too! Thank you so much!

    I find that they slip back to much and should be shaped with a longer part to the front or the dombes back a bit so that they protect the front. The liners allow leakage off the front of them. And they grab up you bum. And I have a small bum so it’s not just my size.

    I used cloth nappies with my daughter the whole way through so thought I mayaswell try cloth pads for myself, I can not express how comfortable they are, I struggled with other pads rubbing and leaving me red raw but these are amazing, wish I’d had them postpartum!!

    I’m a huge advocate of reusable pads and one of the biggest comments I get from people are that they are just too expensive. It’s easy to pay a small amount each month than it is to make one large one for the next 5 years. Nappyneedz really addresses that issue by offering super affordable reusable products that are of high quality making them my product of choice to promote to others who are still on the fence about making the switch. I have tried many different brands and shapes and I feel nappyneedz are the best value for money whilst also being absorbent and soft.

    Worked well but wish they weren’t made of a synthetic fleece (micro fleece). Disadvantage of a synthetic fabric is that they can feel hotter as they do not “breathe” as well as naturals. Nappy needs you’re doing a great job but please consider using natural fleeces like Hemp, Cotton, Bamboo.

    Just didn’t feel at ease using the fleece pad, however I appreciated a night’s sleep without leakages.

    Good size for normal/light days. I prefer the bigger one a lot for the night though! Either size – so easy to wash – got perfectly clean by rinsing and soaking with a little bit of an eco oxi powder.
