Cloth Menstrual Pads How to Choose

Sckoon Cloth Menstrual Pads are available in 2 types (No-Leak and Breathable) in 3 different sizes (Mini, Day & Maxi). Please see below chart and select a pad. You can always choose value sets to save money.

Organic No Leak or Organic Breathable Pads?

First you can select from 2 types of Sckoon Organic Cotton Cloth Pads. If you have regular - heavy flow, or if you are a beginner of cloth menstrual pads, our No Leak pads are great! Because they have a built in (so it doesn't touch your skin) polyurethane sheet, they help prevent accidents. If you have sensitive skin and relatively non-heavy flow, Sckoon Breathable Cloth Menstrual Pads are great for you! They are layers of 100% organic cotton. Nothing else. Both types of pads come with a liner (2 liners with Maxi Pads) to insert in the holder's pockets.


Choose size - Mini, Day or Maxi

Now you select a size based on your flows. For regular flows you want day size pads and for heavy days you need maxi size pads. For lighter days you will need mini size pads.

If you chose "Organic No Leak pads" above, your next selection will be;
NoLeak Mini
NoLeak Day

And for those who chose "Breathable pads" above, your selection will be;

1. Why should I choose organic cotton washable postpartum/menstrual pads over disposables?

Sckoon Organic Cotton Cloth Menstrual Pads are made of 100% certified Egyptian organic cotton; the softest, most absorbent, and breathable cotton in the world, making them comfortable and irritant free. Our Organic Night Pads, designed for heavy flows, are also perfect for postpartum use, providing cushioning and extra comfort to ease postpartum pain. While the convenience of disposables may seem obvious, other things are not so apparent.

  • Various chemicals, including dioxin, have been found in almost every major brand of menstrual pads and tampons available. Dioxin is a known carcinogen and even low levels of exposure have been linked to cervical and breast cancer, endometriosis, and immune system suppression.

  • If dioxin isn'te enough to give you pause, pesticides used in cotton cultivation are showing up in disposable pads and tampons too and have been linked to birth defects, infertility, breast cancer, sterility, and respiratory problems.

  • Also, the plastic and glue backing on disposable pads reduces air circulation and creates a stagnant environment in which some bacteria thrive, causing vaginal irritation and yeast infections.

    Why is organic cotton so important?

  • To make one non-organic cotton pad set, it takes about one third of a pound of chemicals, such as chlorine, pesticides, dioxins, and heavy metals including chromium to fix colors. Chromium is considered dangerous to people, wildlife, and also is damaging to the earth.
  • According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, more than 53 million pounds of pesticides and 1.6 billion pounds of synthetics were used in cotton production in 1996. Cotton, which constitutes 3% of the world cropland, uses about 23% of the world's insecticides to grow it.

    2. How are Sckoon Organic Cotton Cloth Menstrual Pads different from other washable menstrual pads?

    At Sckoon we want you to feel good about your period, happy with your washable menstrual pads, and above all, comfortable and safe. When designing our cloth menstrual pads, we've taken all your needs into account. Sckoon products are better than other washable menstrual pads that you will find on the market because we offer:

  • A variety of colors and prints, all made with low impact dyes.
  • Three sizes to choose from; Mini, Day, and Night
  • 100% organic certified Egyptian cotton**
  • A unique design that allows you to replace the liner when you need to, rather than the whole pad
  • 100% organic cotton thread
  • Nickel free snaps to avoid allergic reactions and skin irritation. **Sckoon OrganicPlus Cloth Menstrual Pads are 100% organic certified Egyptian cotton plus built-in leak-resistant sheet

    3. How do I use a Sckoon Organic Cotton Cloth Menstrual Pad?

    If you are a first time user of cloth menstrual pads, you can start out by just using them at night, when you are at home, or on lighter flow days.

    (1) Sckoon Cloth Menstrual Pads come with 100% Organic Super-soft main pad & a liner (Night/Postpartum Pads come with two liners).
    (2) Place the Super-soft liner into the pockets - practical design allows you to change only liner part any time you like, not the entire pad.
    (3) The print side of Sckoon Menstrual Pads touches your underwear. Fold the wings over the crotch and close the snaps.
    (4) That is it. Sckoon provides you with a comfortable feeling all day long. You will feel the difference.


    4. I have a heavy flow. Won't cotton pads leak?

    Just like any other menstrual product, you will need to monitor and change your Sckoon pads as needed to avoid leaking, but Sckoon pads will probably surprise you with their natural ability to absorb moisture and keep you feeling clean. An added bonus is that on lighter days, you can refold your Sckoon liner each time you go to the bathroom and enjoy a fresh liner without actually having to change it. If you prefer a bit more security, try our OrganicPlus Menstrual Pads, which include a built-in leak resistant sheet to reduce accidents drastically.

    5. What are the differences between the regular Sckoon Organic Pads and the Organic Plus Pads?

    Organic Plus Pads are also made with certified organic cotton, which is pure, natural and absorbent but as a bonus, we have added a little extra protection for you by building in a leak resistant polyurethane sheet into the holder for all NoLeak pads. In addition, we have OrganicPlus Cloth menstrual Pads which includes a built-in leak resistant sheet. To keep breathablity, OrganicPlus pads are not 100% leak-proof, but they reduce the chance of penetration drastically.

    6. Are GIZA Cotton Cloth Menstrual Pads also organic?

    Our GIZA cotton cloth menstrual pads follow the Oeco-tex 100 standard, and the process of making GIZA cotton is as natural as our organic collection. All GIZA pads have built in leak resistant sheet to prevent leakage.

    7. How do I care for my new Sckoon Cloth Menstrual Pads?

    Sckoon pads are machine washable and safe to put in the dryer, although you may choose to air dry them. For maximum absorbency, wash your new Sckoon pads and liners once or twice before using them to remove the cotton natural oils. After use, rinse and soak them with laundry soap or other cleaning agent in cold water, and then wash and dry like you would anything else.

    One user has come up with her own easy way of caring for her Sckoon Cloth Menstrual Pads:
    Before I started using cloth pads, my first thought was that it could be lots of work to take care of them (washing and so on), but thank God, itfs not! What I do is just keep a bucket with a lid in the bathroom and I just throw the used pads and liners in there. The bucket has cold water and sometimes a few drops of Tea Tree Oil for extra sanitizing. Then I just change the water every day and when Ifm done with my period, I throw the used pads and liners into the washing machine. Thatfs it.

    8. How many Sckoon Organic Cotton Cloth Menstrual Pads do I need?

    Of course itis going vary from woman to woman, but a good number to start with is 2 Mini pads, 4 Day pads, and 2 Night pads. If your flow is lighter, you may only need one night pad. Additional Day and Night pads, or extra liners, are a good idea for heavier flows.

    9. What if I have a heavy flow or Ifim using Sckoon Organic Cotton Cloth Menstrual Pads for postpartum?

    Try our longer night pads for best results. They are 13h (34 cm) in length, and come with two organic cotton liners. You can also add additional liners for extra absorbency and protection.

    10. Can I use Sckoon Organic Cotton Cloth Menstrual Pads for stress incontinence?

    Sckoon OrganicPlus Mini Pads are a perfect choice for incontinence. They are small, 8h long (22 cm) and easy to carry in your handbag. Like all Sckoon products, they are organic cotton and convenient. You can use them with or without the liner and the super soft cotton will help prevent irritation and allow your skin to breathe, which is especially important for people who use them every day.

    11. What do I do about changing and storing pads when I'm away from home?

    A zip-lock bag is a handy solution, but we also offer a Sckoon Leak-proof pouch for storing fresh or used pads and liners too. As soon as you come home, soak the used pads in cold water with laundry soap and wash them as usual.

    12. What are the dimensions of Sckoon pads?
