Handmade artisan one of a kind cloth menstrual pads. These cloth menstrual pads are a fantastic way to be more connected to your cycle.  You will begin to understand your bleeding patterns. For those who suffer from reactions to disposable products, cloth pads are a revelation – to not be itchy and uncomfortable on top of having your period. If environmental issues matter to you, with proper care, your cloth pads will last for many years.

All Daisy & Bird’s pads also have a hidden layer of flannelette and a hidden layer of PUL for waterproofing.  They are backed with black cotton/Lycra knit fabric.

Care instructions

1. Pads should be washed prior to first use
​2. Pads can be kept in waterproof bags such as pad wrappers while away from home.
  • Dry store the pads in an open container that allows airflow until you are ready to wash them.
  • Prior to washing, put the pads on a rinse cycle in your washing machine, then soak the soiled pads for a few hours (or overnight) in an oxy solution such as Vanish or Napi-San. For any really stubborn stains, a paste of Vanish and water, or a stain stick often get the job done.
  • Wash them in your washing machine on a cold or warm cycle. NOT hot… It’s fine to wash them with other washing if you are happy to do that.  They can also be hand washed if you choose.
  • DON’TS:  DON’T use hot water, it can set stains – blood contains proteins which react to heat.  DON’T use fabric softener – it will, over time, reduce the absorbency of your pads

3. Pads are best line-dried, however, they may be tumble dried on a low heat setting, although this may reduce the overall life of the pad because of the extra wear and tear from the dryer.
