700,000 sanitary pads go into the bin every day in Ireland
Most women throw away around 11,000 plastic-filled sanitary products, and spend over €1000 for the privilege.
Reusable sanitary pads are a bit like reusable wipes - once you've tried them you'll wish you'd swapped earlier.
Puku Nui cloth sanitary pads (or CSP) are made in Ireland by Nekita with Super soft medium absorbency pad. Topped with microfleece and backed with Laminated Minky.
Nekita use many materials for the cores including; SHBF, Hemp Fleece, Cotton Fleece, Flannel and Bamboo ft.
The poppers mean your pads stay firmly in place so that slips and leaks are a thing of the past.
Pre-wash your pads a couple of times before you use them for the first time to increase their absorbency.
Simply pop them in your bag and when your period has finished wash them all upto 60 degrees but 30-40 degrees is sufficient. Please don't use fabric coditioner as this will make your pads less absorbent.
Avoid direct heat - air drying is best.
