Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Anjupad (Cloth Pad) ?
An Anjupad pad is a re-usable pad worn by women to absorb their menstrual flow as an alternative to disposable pads or menstrual cups.
It is also known as Cloth Pad or Washable Pad.
How often do I need to change my Anjupad (ClothPad)?
This completely depends on how heavy your flow is – we would recommend changing the same rate you would a disposable so every 3-4 hours. Some girls wear theirs for a whole day. You may find that the Anjupads (Cloth pad) are more absorbent than a disposable so you may find you’ll change less often.
Do Anjupad (Cloth Pad) leak?
As for any type of pad, whether disposable or reusable, if filled to capacity will overflow. The extra absorbency Anjupad (Cloth Pad) provide more security, and additionally each Anjupad has a hidden layer of water resistance, which serves as an anti-leak barrier.
What happens when I need to change when I’m out?
Wet bags are the best way to manage your period using Anjupad (Cloth Pad). Simply take it off, roll it up and snap it together and pop them into a wet bag, much like a diaper wet bag. They generally have a water proofed compartment, and then a compartment to put in unused pads so that you can change wherever you are. You could even use a spare make up bag if you have one handy.
Do they have a different smell compared to disposable pads?
Absolutely yes! With disposable pads – there are heaps of chemicals that are in them to try keep them sanitary and white (usually bleach). This reacting to your skin, sweat and blood actually creates that descant smell we are probably all too familiar with. Although periods still smell, the smell isn’t as bad as a disposable pad. The reason is that fabric is more breathable than plastic (which is what disposable pads are backed with to act as a water repellent layer), so any smell that your period has won’t be trapped in the small space.
