Fern Cloth Sanitary Pads Review – Fern CSP Review + Discount Code
I’ve been using CSP for about 8 years or so and it’s one of the best eco (and comfort!) swaps I’ve made. Just like with cloth nappies, I enjoy trying different brands to see what’s out there and now I have quite a mixed stash of brands and sizes.
It’s very exciting to see cloth nappy brands branching out and making cloth pads in addition to nappies and the new star on the market is the gorgeous Fern cloth sanitary pads (CSP) by cloth nappy brand Tickle Tots.
Tickle Tots nappies are very high quality, great designs and high performing so my expectations were the same for Fern cloth sanitary pads. I’m happy to report that I was right. I’ve been testing a Fern CSP in the size Medium. They also come in Light and Heavy and there are mini wet bags too (more about them later). Medium was a great size for me as I already have quite a few overnight/heavy pads and also small ones but not many mediums!
What is it that makes these pads so great? Well, they are amazingly slim — one of the slimmest cloth pads that I’ve ever seen and I have a very wide range of brands. They are also super soft and absorbent thanks to the 100% GOTS certified organic cotton and bamboo fleece core. They are so comfortable to wear that you don’t even feel them and there are two poppers ensuring a good fit. The back fabric is waterproof to prevent leaks and the wings help too.
The pad has an anti-slip design but all cloth pads can move a bit. The solution is to wear tight-fitting pants or shapewear shorts over your pants — this keeps everything in place securely.
The Fern wet bag is the perfect sanitary pad storage bag for when out and about. It’s a clutch size with two compartments so that you can store clean and used pads in a pocket each. It’s made from waterproof fabric and so handy to use to store pads in your bag.
To wash, just put on a cold rinse and then do a regular wash. Some people like to rinse their pads in cold water by hand after use but that’s completely up to you. I don’t do this — I simply pop them into a wet bag until wash day. White fabrics are naturally more likely to stain than colours and a cold rinse can help prevent this.
