I ordered 2 regular cloth pads, 1 panty liner, 1 sample cloth tampon set and 2 small infralabial pads.
I paid (before shipping) $17.42, which I felt was pretty reasonable. I did buy some pad that were on clearance (seconds) and there was a coupon code at the time that saved me a little bit of money. You can join the Cloth Junkies Facebook group to be notified if there are any available coupon codes to use.
The cost of the pads ranges from $4 for a straight 6-inch pantyliner to $12 for a flared 12-inch heavy pad. Both of the pads I tested below are regular/moderate absorbency. The average cost of those is around $6.
Don’t forget, if you go through Ebates on your Etsy purchases, you receive 1% cash back and $10 if you are a new customer.!
Variety of Styles & Sizes:
Cloth Junkies has a selection of different styles and sizes. There should be something to fit just about anyone in their shop.
Variety of Prints:
I am extremely impressed with the variety of different prints offered. At the time of writing, there are 133 custom pad prints listed on Etsy. You are sure to find something you like.
I found all of the pads I ordered from them to be very comfy.
What I Didn’t Like:
The only thing I didn’t like was that the minky topped pad wasn’t for me. Everything else was great!
The owner of the company is very nice. Customer service was great. When I placed my order, I realized I wanted to add more to it and sent her a message, she responded quickly and solved the problem for me, even though the problem was my mistake.
Shipping was quick. She was nice enough to include a small piece of candy in my order (always a plus for that time of the month!) and a stain stick!
6 Inch Minky Topped Pad (Regular)
After the 10 minute testing period, there was no leaking from the back. However, the water seemed to just sit on the top of the material. After 30 minutes, the water did absorb down into the core. I think the minky fabric would work great for slow bleeders but not for “gushers”. I would be more inclined to use this pad for a backup with a menstrual cup or tampon than by itself on a “gushing day” or use it by itself on a light day.
8 Inch French Terry Topped Pad (Regular)
When I checked this pad after the 10 minute testing period, it felt almost totally dry. There was no leaking at all or any heaviness. You could certainly use this pad by itself. I plan on ordering more of these pads for my stash. I added another 1/4 oz of liquid to this pad and after 10 minutes, there was still no leaking. There was some slight dampness to the top layer of fabric.
I am highly impressed with this company. The pads were all excellent quality. Cloth Junkies sell more than just pads. They have wet bags, unpaper towels and more. I plan on purchasing more pads from them in the future as well as some of their other offerings.
