Happy 2021 😊. I'm still on holiday with my children. The website will open again at the start of February. Thanks heaps, Laura 😊
Little Sky medium. Approximately 30cmL x 20cmW (9cm wide when snapped).
These are a wider and longer medium that the Love My Lady Cloth.
Mediums have two round of core stitching so they are easy to tell apart from Supers.
They have two layers of bamboo fleece in the core, hidden PUL and bright yellow flannelette as the backing fabric. The fluffy flannelette goes against your underpants and the print, against your body.
Pattern placement will vary.
When they are new, try to keep dark and light colours separate and the red flannelette backed ones separate from lighter colours for the first few soaks and washes.
I put mine straight into a bucket of cold water (the liners that I wear daily just get bunged into the washing pile. They don't get soaked unless they are used for my period).
When I have enough to wash I put them through a rinse cycle and then wash them with my other washing (on a cold or warm wash) and then hang them out to dry or put them in the hot water cupboard.
If you get stains, you might like to soak your pads in product such as Ecostore Laundry Soaker and Stain Remover.
Unfortunately most homemade washing powders do not have the enzymes required to break down blood. You will need to use a bought washing powder that contains them. I have used Ecostore , Earthwise and Surf, all with success.
Do not use fabric softener as it can make pads less absorbent.
Do not use bleach.
Do not tumble dry
Do not dry clean.
Fading and pilling of the fabric over time is normal and not a defect.
If you want your pads to remain bright and vibrant, do not leave out in the sun for long periods of time.
