Here they were again, cloth pads. Nope, still not interested. Nope, nope, nope. Then a funny thing happened in October of 2013. I was asked to review Pink Lemonade Shop cloth menstrual pads on my blog. I couldn't get away from these cloth pads so I took a few days to think about it. I asked fellow cloth pad users and bloggers what they thought and finally I took the plunge. I agreed to a review.
During my review period (no pun intended), I found that I was surprised at how easy caring for cloth pads was and how much they hold. Other than never being much of a pad user, my concern had always been that cloth pads wouldn't be as absorbent as disposables and I quickly found that I was wrong. But the reason why I became hooked on cloth pads didn't really have anything to do with either of those things. Sure, they're great for the environment and the bank account, but I am now a cloth pad convert and addict because they're soft and pretty. Be honest, who loves that time of the month? I know that I don't, but if there is anything that I can do to make it a little more pleasant then I will, and that something turned out to be cloth pads. Pink Lemonade Shop pads to be specific.
