Reusable Cloth Pad User Guide

JuJu Cloth Pads are comfortable and easy to use.


Before your period

Pre-wash your pad by hand or machine, as per the instructions below, before using for the first time.


Washing cloth pads

Your reusable pads require washing after each use, and may require stain removal treatment from time to time. Here are some tips for caring for your cloth pads so that they last you many years.

Pre-rinse your pad in cold water until the water runs clear or leave it to soak overnight

You can machine or hand wash your cloth pads.

Hand or Machine Wash

Hand wash: Hand wash with detergent in warm water

Machine wash: Add to your next machine wash on a gentle, warm wash cycle.

Line Dry

Line dry, in the sun if possible

Cloth pads may take a little longer to dry than other garment due to the absorbent layers.

No Softeners

Do not use fabric softeners

Softeners coat the cotton fibers and reduce the absorbency of the pad.

No Bleach

Do not bleach

No Tumble Dry

Do not tumble dry

Tumble dryer temperatures may destroy the waterproof layer on pads.

No iron
Do not iron

It is normal for cloth pads to shrink a little after the first wash as they are made of cotton.


Fitting your pad

How to use a cloth pad

Place the pad on the inside of the gusset of your underwear with the soft, absorbent cotton layer facing upward and the narrower end pointing towards the front of the underwear, near the pubic bone.

How to use a cloth pad

Fold the wings around the underwear gusset.

JuJu cloth pads have 2 snaps or press studs on one wing to allow you to adjust the pad to suit the width of your gusset.

Hot to use a cloth pad

Snap the press studs together.

You may need to adjust the pad to sit more toward the front or back of your underwear depending on your bleed pattern.


After your period

Wash your pads as per the care instructions above.

Some staining is normal due to the absorbent nature of the natural cotton fibres and should not be cause for concern. For heavy or stubborn stains, try rubbing bicarb soda with a little water on the stains and rinsing thoroughly afterwards. You can find out more by reading our article about how to prevent and remove stains on your cloth pads.

You can also treat your pads every couple of months or more frequently if you suffer from yeast infections. To do this, wash your pad with a small amount of any of the following; white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, water-soluble tee tree oil or eucalyptus oil.
