The Glad Rags package of reusable menstrual pads, I ordered, arrived yesterday! On my Birthing Day for Jake. Sweet 'lil Birthing Day gift for Momma!
I am so excited for my next period which is 3 weeks away. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas!
The pads are so soft. I am now lamenting not making this switch YEARS ago. I have had a period for 37 years! This is many years I could have used the soft, cottony, earth-friendly pads. Glad Rags started in 1993, I was 28. 21 years I have missed out on this organic, cottony softness!
I am wondering, at 49, how many years I will get out of these things
What is one to do with their cotton, re-usable pads when menopause is my life? Sell used menstrual pads? To whom? Is there a market for used Glad Rags? Let me check Ebay... I will be right back.
OK, lots of them for sale on Ebay but no "used" ones. Hmm, reminds me of the days, years ago, when 3 girlfriends (Myself included here) passed around our different menstrual cups. We wanted to check them all out and see which one we like the best: The Keeper, Moon Cup, La Luna Cup, Diva Cup, etc.
So, before you get totally grossed out, we cleaned with hot, soapy water and then soaked them in a vinegar and water solution infused with lavender and tea tree oil. All clean and free of bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc. before we used each others.
I was, still am, a Keeper fan!
Stay tuned to learn more about my thoughts on these sweet, soft pads AND embracing menstruation for the magical, creative force it is!
