Have you heard of Pink Lemonade? The Pink Lemonade Shop offers a line of luxury, reusable, handmade cloth menstrual pads made with top quality fabrics. When Pink Lemonade recently offered me a chance to review some mama cloth, I jumped at the opportunity. In addition to using cloth diapers, I also recently made the switch to reusable menstrual products. Instead of disposable pads and tampons, I now use a combination of reusable cloth pads and menstrual cups.
For my review of Pink Lemonade mama cloth, I received four reusable pads: a 6-inch mini pantyliner, a 7.5-inch regular pantyliner, an 8-inch light pad, and an 11-inch overnight pad. I opted for the minky fabric in a variety of prints and colors. All of the pads feature tab style wings fastened with a quality poly-resin snap. The fabric is minky backed with water resistant Windpro Fleece. The light pad and overnight pad also feature an absorbent core made of bamboo fleece.
Caring for my new Pink Lemonade mama cloth is extremely easy. As soon as my order arrived, I threw the pads in with my regular diaper laundry. I do a cold rinse with half a teaspoon of Rockin’ Green detergent. Then I do a heavy wash cycle with a warm wash and a cold rinse. I finally toss my mama cloth in the dryer with the rest of my cloth diaper inserts for about an hour. Sometimes I allow the pads to air dry followed by ten minutes in the dryer to zap any remaining moisture. I store dirty pads in a wet bag in my bathroom until the next diaper laundry day.
Of all the mama cloth that I have tried so far, my new Pink Lemonade minky pads are my absolutely favorite. I love the softness and absorbency of the minky inserts that I use on my daughter. I also love the softness of the minky fabric on my Pink Lemonade mama cloth. In fact, my Pink Lemonade minky pads are the first pads that I reach for during my period. I texture of the cloth is so soft against my skin.
One problem that I discovered with some of my other mama cloth was the bulkiness. However, with my Pink Lemonade minky pads, I never worry about any discomfort. Pink Lemonade pads are super absorbent but still thin enough to not bother me. The pads are slightly thicker than the pantyliners but still never an annoyance. Even the overnight pad, which is considerably bigger in length, never irritates me while I sleep. I have actually woken up from the bulkiness of some of my other mama cloth. With my Pink Lemonade overnight pad, I sleep soundly and comfortably.
I am also extremely satisfied with the absorbency of my Pink Lemonade pads. Lucky me, I have a long and heavy flow during my period. When I used disposable pads and tampons, I had to change the product every few hours. I often experienced leaks. With my Pink Lemonade mama cloth, I have yet to experience any problems with leaking. Even at night, my overnight minky pad has me covered — literally and figuratively. Combined with the soft texture, my minky mama cloth from Pink Lemonade is absolutely perfect for my period.
Finally, the colors and patterns of my new Pink Lemonade mama cloth make my time of the month just a little bit happier. I received pads in teal, yellow, and orange colors and patterns. However, the Pink Lemonade shop also offers a number of other fun prints and colors. I particularly love the animal print pads as well as the fun owl prints. Be sure to stop by the Pink Lemonade Shop to check out all the beautiful and fun prints and colors currently available.
Final Verdict: My Pink Lemonade reusable minky menstrual pads are my new favorite mama cloth during my period. When I reach into my bathroom cabinet, I always choose my Pink Lemonade pads first. Super absorbent despite a heavy flow, Pink Lemonade minky pads are also super soft but never bulky. The colors and prints also make that time of the month a little less dreary. If you are looking for some new mama cloth to try, I cannot recommend Pink Lemonade reusable pads enough!
