All About Cloth Pads! What Size Do You Need & How To Care


New to cloth pads? Not sure what size you need or where to start? Here's a quick rundown on the FAQs of using Cloth Pads and how to pick the right size for you!

How to care for my cloth pads?

Cloth pads are often made using soft cotton fabric (Sckoon Pads are made of 100% organic cotton which contains natural oil). To maximize its absorbency, always wash your cloth pads before first use.

For used cloth pads, rinse and soak them with laundry soap or a gentle cleaning agent in cold water, then put them in the washing machine with your regular detergent. You can air-dry (recommended) or use a dryer with low temperature. 

Other cleaning options include hand washing, soap nuts, and sun bleaching (for white pads) to help remove and lift stains.

How many pads do I need?

We recommend 4 Day pads, 2 Mini Pads and 2 Night pads to start with. If your flow is heavier than average, you can add more pads or liners. 

What size do I need?

The size you need will vary based on how light or heavy your flow is. Take a look at our quick video below to help you decide!

Why choose organic cloth pads?

SckoonPads 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 SckoonMaxi, 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’t 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.
