Some say it's going back to the old times. Some say it's a smart move for both yourself and the environment. What is it that everyone is talking about here? Using cloth pads.
Not everyone is keen on the idea of using cloth pads instead of disposable pads out on the market. Why? It's just so out dated and doesn't seem sanitary at all! Many questions and uncertainty arise when people think about switching to cloth pads or not. And one of the main topic that comes up is about how long it really lasts and how long it can stay fairly stain-free.
So this post if for those of you out there having this question in your head. Keep reading to view the reveal of what 3-4 years old cloth pads actually look like.
Among these pads, there are 2 pads that are previous generation hannahpads. They are from Eisa's very first purchase of hannahpads, which was 7 years ago! Can you find which ones they are?
If you've found it right, yes, they have metal buttons! hannahpad used to have metal buttons initially, which then was changed to high quality plastic buttons to minimize allergic reactions. And with another closer look, you will also notice the differences in the stitching as well. The perimeter ribbon has only 1 stitching compared to the double stitching on the pads for the next generation pads. And for the Overnight Pad, you can see that it has only 1 leak prevention stitching compared to the double leak prevention stitching lines. (See Overnight Pads inside photo above.) Like this, hannahpad always looks for ways to develop our pads for the better.
Oh, and some of these patterns are part of hannahpad history too! These 3 patterns are no longer available with hannahpads. Collecting different patterns is another fun part of using cloth pads. After all, you won't be collecting your used disposable pads, right?
For the past 7 years, Eisa spent about $400 for her pads and that's it. That's only about $43 a year! Would you be able to get through the whole year on $43 worth of disposable pads? NO! And more importantly, think about the amount of waste that she's saved while using cloth pads. It may be a bit more work to use cloth pads, but the health benefits, the savings, and less environmental impact far outweighs the hassle.
So are you ready to test it out yourself yet?
