Meet Lunette Reusable Pads: Our solution to the environmental damage caused by disposable menstrual products. Rather than needing to keep on topping up your supply of menstrual products each cycle, our reusable cloth pads can be — you guessed it! — reused.
Whether you’re looking for a brand new-period product or something to wear alongside your Lunette Menstrual Cup, our reusable pads are made from organic cotton that are Öko-tex 100 certified and 100% safe for your body. After all, with a vulva as great as yours, why would you want to keep it near any unfamiliar materials?
What is it?
Lunette Reusable Pads are an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional disposable sanitary pads. They work just like the pads you’re used to, only instead of ending up as part of the growing piles of waste caused by disposable sanitary products, they end up in the wash instead!
What’s my size?
We have three sizes or reusable menstrual pads available: mini, midi and maxi. Our range of sizes ensures that everyone has a pad that they can rely on, so you’ll always have a worry-free period.
Each of our sizes is available in a handy three-pack, so you’ve always got a couple of spare pads to see you through. If you’re a veteran of disposable menstrual pads, you’ll probably already know your size. If you’re new to the world of pads, on the other hand, our assortment pack contains one of each size, so you can find which is just right for you.

Why choose Lunette Reusable Pads?
For the environment
It’s no secret that disposable menstrual products have a big impact on the environment. The average person who menstruates will throw away an estimated 11,000 tampons or pads in their lifetime, along with the packaging — most of which ends up in landfills or the ocean. Our reusable menstrual pads allow you to do your bit for the environment by severely cutting down on unnecessary plastic waste.
For your health
As our cloth pads are highly breathable and designed for comfort, they’re not associated with contact dermatitis; a problem some people find when using disposable products. You’ll also find no harmful chemicals or perfumes in our disposable pads — they’re designed with your body in mind to ensure a happy period.
For your convenience
The last thing you want is to be caught out on your period. Thankfully, there’ll be no more last-minute dashes to the shop to buy disposable products. With the Lunette Reusable Pad, you’ll always be prepared, giving you more control over your periods (and save you a pretty penny too!).
How long Reusable Pads can last in use?
How do pads stay in place?
Our reusable pads have wings that wrap around your underwear and are secured in place with a press button. Wearing well-fitting underwear will help create a closer fit to your body. TIP: wear underwear that is made from cotton or another non-slip material to help keep your pad in place.
How many Pads will I need?
This depends on your flow and if you're either using pads exclusively or using the pads as a backup with your menstrual cup. We recommend to have an assortment of pads to have you covered throughout your cycle: 2-4 minis, 6-12 mediums and 1-3 maxis.
Aren’t reusable pads bulkier than disposables?
Lunette Reusable Cloth Pads are made of multiple layers of soft, comfy organic cotton fabric, bamboo viscose for great absorbency and waterproof coated PUL-fabric layer to block the moisture - so they can be found slightly thicker than disposable pads. HOWEVER, we’ve been able to avoid too many bulky layers by using quality fabrics and carefully crafted design! The Lunette Reusable Pads are truly comfortable, soft and made from safe materials– just the things you want from a pad, without too many bells and whistles.
Can I trust my Reusable Pad not to leak?
The Lunette Reusable Pad is made from high quality materials that are known for their absorbency. The first layer that is against your skin is super soft, organic cotton, followed by a layer of bamboo viscose to absorb all moisture, with the final layer of PUL-fabric to block any leakage from passing through. The Cloth Pad has two wings that snap around the underwear to keep the sides of your underwear dry. However, it depends on your flow how often you need to change your cloth pad before becoming completely saturated. After using the Lunette Reusable Pad for a short while, you’ll get a good idea on how often to change them and keep leak-free. Please note – it's important to make sure the pad is the right way around, with the tag facing your underwear. If not, your pad might leak.
Won’t cloth pads get stained?
Yes, even though the Lunette Reusable Pads are amazing in every single way, slight staining might eventually occur. However, we would like to reassure you that the stains don’t mean that the Lunette Cloth Pad is ruined or not clean. Naturally, darker pad colours hide the stains conveniently.
How often should I change my cloth pad?
Changing your Lunette Cloth Pad depends on the amount of your flow. You will know it’s time to switch the pad if it starts feeling wet against your skin. Naturally, with heavier flow, you will need to change the cloth pad more often. With lighter flow, more infrequent changing will do!
Should I wash new pads before wearing?
Yes, we recommend washing the Lunette Cloth Pads before the first use according to the care instructions - in machine wash cycle 40-60 degree. The Lunette Cloth Pads are handled in a clean environment, but the washing removes all the loose particles, such as dust and fabric cuttings. The first wash will matt the fabric and increase the absorbency.
When should I wash the pads?
You should wash the Lunette Cloth Pads after every use. We recommend rinsing or soaking the pad directly after use and then store away after being dried. You can wait for your next full laundry load to wash the pads! Basically, just wash them whenever is the most convenient for you.
Why my Cloth Pad leaks?
Remember to wash the pads before first use. The Lunette Reusable Pads are machine sewn and therefore the holes from the needle can leak. It's important for the fabric to be washed before use as the structure will this way be restored. You should also change the pad more often to avoid any unfortunate leakages.
What about Reusable Pads and period smell?
The first thing to pay attention to is changing the cloth pad often enough. When period flow comes in contact with air, it isn’t unusual for it to smell like period bleed at some point. The cloth pad is more breathable than disposable pads and may even avoid the smell occurrence as there will be less moisture wicked. Please note - if you detect a strong or sturdy smell (insert link to vagina smell blog), you should always check your pH balance and rule out possible infections. Make sure to speak to a health care professional if you’re concerned.
