Mom Clothing _: Reusable Tampons
Ready to give up disposable paper tampons, but not ready to give up their convenience and to switch to cloth pads? For an inexpensive solution, here's a Frugal Mom Tip!
Buy 6 pair (or more) of 100% cotton white baby socks. Wash (and dry) three times with a natural, mild soap - rinsing well. At your next period, simply roll up one baby sock into a tight roll, and insert as you would a paper tampon. If you need more absorbency, use two baby socks rolled up.
Replace it with the next baby sock as needed. Rinse the used one out well, and store dry until washday.
