For many years and ever since the first day of our period, we have been taught to use commercialized and disposable menstrual pads because of its convenience and affordability. These pads are commonly used by students, full time moms and working women in any field. However, did you know that using cloth pads is more convenient and helps you save hundreds of dollars than using disposable ones? Here are the reasons why and the amazing benefits of menstrual cloth pads.
It Makes You Healthier
Yes, I said it right. Most commercialized and disposable pads contain substances such as plastic, synthetic fibers, chemical gels, and adhesives that produce toxins which can be irritating to feminine area, can disrupt hormonal balance and can cause or trigger menstrual cramps, whereas reusable cloth pads does not contain harmful and bio-accumulative products like plastics and dioxin as it is made from natural fabrics. Moreover, it claimed that some users have shorter or lighter periods or fewer cramps when using cloth pads as opposed to disposable products.
It Keeps You Fresh and Odor-Free for Longer Hours
Disposable pads are unhygienic because the synthetic materials that trap the blood flow and chemicals produce bad odor or a smell like a rotten fish in the sea. Menstrual cloth pads from Highoh are naturally made from bamboo charcoal fabric that has the ability to decompose odor-causing bacteria and microorganism that are found in the pad during menstruation. It is scientifically-proven that bamboo charcoal has a natural disinfectant and neutralizing effect that blocks odor on the pad so say good bye to your old disposable pads and say hello to a cramp-free and odor-free period.

Cloth pads are environmentally friendly. It is reusable and does not add as a garbage to the environment after using while disposable pads can lead to serious pollution especially when undisposed properly. Though it is reusable, it is easy to hand wash or machine wash with soap and dry it by hanging.
