Mom Clothing _: Frugal Cloth Menstrual Pads
Cloth menstrual pads too expensive to buy - but you couldn't sew one if your life depended on it?? Here's a cheap way to make your own - without sewing at all!
Simply buy the cheapest terry facecloths you can find. Red would be a great colour to buy, but if not choose a colour separate from anything you would normally use as a facecloth.
To use, simply fold in half, then half again - both long-wise. You should have a long narrow pad now. Place in the crotch of your panties, and you are all set - cloth against cloth doesn't move. For more absorbency, simply fold two cloths together.
For waterproof protection, you can cut 3" by 12" (8 cm by 30 cm) strips of a rubberized flannelette change pad, or Polar fleece, and lay it between your cloth pad and your panties.
To wash, simply rinse out, and toss in the laundry hamper. Wash together with the regular laundry, no special care needed.
