Whatakrakka Fancy Pads
Whatakrakka Fancy Pads. My family and I live in
I make gorgeous cloth menstrual pads out of designer cottons, using a very effective bamboo core, hidden PUL (waterproofing) and finished off with soft flannelette.
Not only are they gorgeous to look at, they are also very effective and have made many of
Whatakrakka (What – a – cracker) was the pedigree name of our Boston Terrier Teddy.

As you can see I use fun and beautiful prints for the top layer (goes against your body) which are 100% cotton. The cores are made of layers of soft and thirsty bamboo fleece (70% Bamboo, 30% Cotton for durability) which is one of the most effective fabrics that can be used as the absorbent layers in cloth pads. Next, we have a layer of Poly Urethane Laminate which is a waterproof fabric then a layer of soft flannelette on the outside to cover the PUL as that can make pads slide around in your undies. Which is not what we want! The fancy stitching you can see attaches the core to the top of the pad keeping the bamboo nice and flat as well as directing your flow quickly into the centre of the pad.
Washing Your Cloth Pads
When they are new try and keep dark and light colours separate for the
first few soaks and washes.
I put mine straight into a bucket of cold water. When I have enough to wash I put them through a rinse cycle, then I wash them with my other washing and hang them to dry or put them in the hot water cupboard.
If you get stains you can add something like Ecostore Stain Remover to your soaking bucket or use a spot treatment. The sun can also help fade stains.
Like all fabric they will fade if left in the sun for long periods of time.
Do not use fabric softener as it can make pads less absorbent.
Do not use bleach.
Do not use the dryer.
Some women find they stain certain colours more than others. Some don't stain at all. Others bleach black and other colours over time. Everyone's bodily fluid is different and I cannot tell you which colours will suit you best. Unfortunately, it is a trial and error thing.
If your pad stains or bleaches it is not considered a fault of the pad.
