I’m going to warn any male readers that today’s subject is one you may want to skip. . .unless of course you’re concerned about the health of your wife and/or daughters.
Just don’t say I didn’t warn you. 🙂
The first time I heard about cloth pads, my sister-in-law brought it up, “I want to show you what I’ve been making.”
Crystal is who I’d want to be if I ever became talented in the crafty department. She comes up with all sorts of neat ideas: cloth diapers, modest swimwear, knitted hats and mittens, etc. I, on the other hand, haven’t sewn for ages and I can’t read a pattern to save my life!
She opened her sewing bag and pulled out miniature diapers. Except, if you tilted your head just right, they didn’t really look like diapers. . .
“I’m making my own cloth pads.”
I’ll be honest. My first thought was, ewww!
She went on to tell me about the absorbent material she’d found, the pattern she’d discovered, and all the details my very non-crafty brain didn’t quite understand.
But here I am, years later, and LOVING cloth pads.
Not only do I think it was an important part of how I got rid of my candida overgrowth, I discovered 5 EXCELLENT reasons to make the switch whether you have candida or not.
Today I’m sharing this post on Frugal Farm Wife. Pop over there to read the 5 reasons I use cloth pads and say hi to Elise while you’re there. She and her husband raise grass-fed cattle and she has some lovely gluten-free recipes to browse too.
