This washable large menstrual pad from Hannah is made from certified organic cotton, meaning that no chemicals have been used to grow the cotton or at any point along the production process.
What does that mean for you? You can feel confident that your pads are 100% chemical free!
All Hannahpads are breathable, soft and comfortable, giving you a fresher feel that no disposable pad ever could.
The large cloth pads are great for heavy days or to wear overnight to give you added protection.
Simply place your cotton washable menstrual pad over the inside of your underwear, pattern facing down.
Then fold the wings over the outside of your underwear and secure using the plastic snap fastener.
The average woman uses approximately 4kg worth of disposable menstrual products every year. All of which ends up in our landfills and will remain there for hundreds of years. Swapping disposables for reusables means that no waste goes to landfill, and as Hannah’s cloth pads are designed to last for years, over your menstruating lifetime you will massively reduce your carbon footprint!
Yes. Although cloth pads are an initial investment, once you have them, you won’t need to buy menstrual products month after month. And the more you use each pad, the more you save. Hannah have designed their cotton pads to be of the highest quality to ensure that they last you for as long as possible. If you keep them safe and follow the washing instructions they could last for you years!
Hannah is a brand focused on your health and the health of Mother Earth. It only uses sustainable organic cotton, meaning no toxic pesticides are used to grow the cotton, and to be sure they have been Control Union Certified. This means that their industry supply chains are officially recognised as sustainable.
Hannah cares about everything along their manufacturing chain, from the cotton farmers health, the farming practices to protect the environment, all the way to you and your body. Hannah wants to give you a top quality product that is 100% toxin free.
1. Rinse your Hannahpads as soon as possible after wearing them to remove any discharge. Use cold water as hot water causes blood stains to set.
2. Rub your bar of Probiotic Laundry Soap into your Hannahpad's and rub to form a lather. Don't rinse.
3. Fill a tub or bucket with cold water and leave your Hannahpads to soak for between 6 and 48 hours.
4. Wash by hand or machine wash in cold water.
5. Dry in the sun where possible as it is a natural antibacterial. A laundry hanger can make drying your pads easy.
To keep your Hannahpad's looking great for as long as possible please stick to these simple guidelines;
- Do not bleach.
- Do not dry clean.
- Do not tumble dry/machine dry.
- Do not use fabric softener.
After washing your Hannahpads you must dry them as quickly as possible to avoid them becoming mouldy.
Drying them in the sun immediately after washing is the best solution to avoiding mould. Ensure they are fully dry before storing. If your pads do become mouldy you can soak them in a solution of vinegar or borax.
Please follow the manufacturers instructions carefully.
For your health & hygiene, do not use your Hannahpad if any mould is present. If mould persists dispose of your Hannahpad. It is each individuals responsibility to wash and maintain their pads once purchased.
Hannahpad or Reuseful does NOT take responsibility for the incorrect use and/or washing and care of the product.
But don’t let this put you off, caring for Hannahpads is easy, and you don’t wear mouldy undies do you!
I am so happy with the range of sanitary options available, these are such a great option as opposed to the store brought throw out one's. They are very comfortable & work great. I won't be returning to the throw out one's again!
I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable this was to use!
This pad was really luxurious for at night time. It was really nice of Kelly to order these sizes in for me when they weren't originally in stock :) She really goes above and beyond for her customers and has great communication. It was my first time shopping with her when I bought these and I'm going to get some more in the medium size :)
I was really surprised to feel so dry wearing this. It felt like I was just not on my period. I could also last a lot longer wearing this and didn't need to change pads often because there isn't a sticky top layer of blood that you get with disposables and you also don't have to worry about those times when a pad scruches and the sticky side pulls a hair. The only problem is that it does take a while to rinse in the tap but I'm sure if I follow the instructions for care on the website and use something stronger than a bar of soap it will wash much faster. Overall great product, I highly recommend trying it.
