To my surprise (sort of) I got four answers:
- The first was an incredibly rude comment that I was disgusting and vulgar by even suggesting that women use cloth pads. This answer made me so angry that I reported it as abuse.
- Second answer: "No fabrics are really that good for menstrual pads; however, sheet metal and sandpaper pads are reported to work very well!"
- Third Answer: " I don't know about that....not very sanitary...most women would want something they could just dispose of when it comes to that. They use to use cloth menstrual pads in the old days...why go backwards?"
- Fourth Answer: "I'd recomend bamboo fiber from trader joe's combined with a light dusting in kosher salt then washing. The salt kills all the viruses and bacteria so you can even re-use them if you don't mind the mess without washing!" This was the least ignorant and insulting, but I don't think this user knows what she's talking about.
If anyone else her agrees with me, please let me know.
