Our Wash-Pad Kits
Our Wash-Pads are washable and reusable. The absorbent fabric we use is hemp or bamboo fleece both of which are naturally anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and highly absorbent. The waterproof fabric is called Eco-PUL™ which is a laminated fabric; solvent-free, environmentally friendly, and releases no volatile organics.
We have researched the healthiest fabric for this use, as well as the highest quality and most durable sewing supplies.
Each Kit we make costs approximately $15 and includes:
♦ 3 Padlets (absorbent pads)
♦ 9 Pad inserts (extra protection)
♦ 1 Knapsack
(for carrying kits discreetly)
♦ 2 Pair of underwear
♦ 2 Ziploc bags
(for carrying and washing pads)
♦ Instruction pamphlet
