Washing cloth menstrual pads is easy. Here are some natural laundry aids to help you get your reusable cloth pads clean and remove stains. Mainstream detergents are full of chemicals and fillers that can cause buildup on your cloth pads. Never use fabric softeners on your pads, they will become less absorbent (the same is true of your towels!). If you must use a fabric softener, we recommend only using Ecover fabric softener sparingly and occasionally.
If you want your clothing to smell good out of the dryer, scented wool dryer balls are an economical and planet-friendly option. Wool dryer balls reduce drying time - saving you money. They also soften your clothing naturally, without harsh chemicals or toxic fragrances.
