SomeWhereOutThere's started topic of conversation, Do you remember when, got me thinking about this one. Anyone else make the switch to cloth pads at any point in their life? I did, and though I no longer use them, I wore reusable cloth pads for the better part of 15 years. Can't even remember exactly why I made the switch (environmental reasons mostly if my memory serves me right), but once I made the switch I never went back to using disposable paper pads again. Made my own pads from scratch... never had a problem using them or laundering them. Oldest daughter uses cloth pads to this day, mostly when she's at home, but nonetheless, she's a cloth user and has been for the past 8-9 years.
