Reusable sanitary pads by MamaMinx
Bamboo reusable sanitary pads are a little bit of nature's luxury for Mum. Soothing and absorbent, this modern take on an age-old product is very simple to use and provides an effective and far more comfortable alternative to disposable pads.
Traditionally, cloth was the only option when it came to women's sanitary products as well as babies' nappies. The last generation saw a move towards using disposables, but now, thanks to advances in textiles, it is possible to have the benefits of reusable products with the ease of disposables!
Each pad is made with polyacetal snaps to hold it securely to your underwear (rather than the adhesive strip on disposables). Washable and reusable, MamaMinx sanitary pads feature a layer of bamboo and organic cotton – this fabric is super soft and low allergenic on sensitive skin, plus is extremely absorbent. A hidden waterproof layer helps prevent any leaks through onto your underwear.
Caring for your MamaMinx pads is simple: rinse immediately after use, then place in a bucket or waterproof bag until you’re ready to wash, Wash along with your regular laundry. For best results, use a plain detergent (no whiteners, softeners or perfumes) and avoid using bleach or fabric softener.
MamaMinx reusable sanitary pads do not contain the bleaches, perfumes or other harsh chemicals used in making disposables, making them the ideal choice for protecting sensitive skin.
Using MamaMinx cloth pads can reduce your carbon footprint by up to 40%! They use less water and energy to produce and use and do not contribute to landfill like disposables.

Shaped like a disposable sanitary pads and made with absorbent, stain-resistant fabrics, MamaMinx cloth pads are absorbent, effective and can be just as simple and easy to use as the disposable alternatives. The fabrics we use mean that cleaning is a simple, fuss-free task!

- I would happily recommend MamaMinx to any mother :) Review by Eliza
- My experience with MamaMinx breast pads. Receiving the package was easy, as it came in regular post. There was no need to travel to the post office and pick up a parcel, which with a baby can be a nightmare. Upon opening the packet I had the unstoppable urge to rub the lovely soft pads on my cheeks (because that's the true test of softness ;) ). I was also impressed by the size of the pads, as I could tell they would prevent the 'madonna' look that small disposable ones can. Since I mainly use breast pads at night (when my little man doesn't feed as often) I was very impressed by their comfort when I first used them. There was no rubbing or irritation caused by them and the absorbency was incredible. I also found they breath well during hot nights and in no way added to the night sweats I was experiencing as a new mum. When it comes to washing I either pop them in with whatever load is going on, or I simply hand wash and hang out in the sun to dry. They dry rather fast and never have a sour milk smell about them. Overall I find MamaMinx breast pads convenient and easy to use. The company is friendly and helpful. I enjoy reading their regular Facebook updates and getting a little giggle from the mother related jokes. I would happily recommend MamaMinx breast pads to any mother :). (Posted on 18/11/13)

- Love my MamaMinx! Review by Jordie
- Love my MamaMinx nursing pads and sanitary pads. I started using the sanitary pads while I was pregnant and the soft, cushy fabric really helped when everything was a bit swollen and tender. Then after my daughter was born, they were lovely and absorbent and soft. The nursing pads are lovely and soft and soak up heaps without leaving you chafed or sore. Thanks MamaMinx!
