I think the best site for reusable and washable pads and liners is NATURALLY COZY - Home
the products are AMAZINGGGGG and they love doing custom orders for you! They are the nicest company that i have met, with wonderful workers that love what they do. It is a family owned company. Their motto is practical, prudent, prepared and pretty. I could not more highly recommend them!!! :)

PantyLiners - NATURALLY COZY
Incontinence Pads - NATURALLY COZY

What do y'all think about these products? They are a must have that not many people are thinking about! What will you do when stores run out of pads and liners?? It will suck! haha... that's why I'm trying to switch over to reusable and washable pads and liners instead of buying from a store. Are other people doing this?

Generally people introduce themselves here before plugging a site. As for feminine hygiene products I will be capable of making them a lot less inexpensively than buying.

that was a joke btw. i still think it would be to much work to go search,..and if you think about it you have to spend money on gas to get to the thrift store (at least i do) then by the flannel and no telling whate elses to make it more absorbent...then all the time it takes to make your own, plus the drive back home...for me, that would cost more.

Depends on your perspective, I guess. If I can learn the skills to do something on my own, I'd rather do that.

As for where flannel sheets have been, I'll tell you. They come home and they go through my washing machine. Problem solved.

I guess so...you still end up spending more money than just buying them in the first place though. plus spending all that time to find the products you need... (which would be more than flannel). It seams like a huge waste of valuable time.

Real preppers would use Israeli bandages. Just sayin.

Is that white car parked behind your house yours or do you drive the beat up pickup?

Oh, boys, you are so in over your heads here.

The Moon cup and Diva cup are the same idea but different brands. I have both. They are...inconsistent to say the least. Although I think they work better before you've had kids. When they work, they work great! When they don't work, well, we just don't need to go there. Plus, you need to clean it out when you empty it. Say you're in a public restroom inside a stall. What are you going to do? Jump up and run to the sink? Not happening. I wanted to love mine because we don't use disposable anything, but they just didn't work out. <sigh>

But, with a $20 snap plier tool, a yard of PUL (waterproof polyester) and some flannel, you can make as many reusable pads as you could possibly want or need. Now *that* would be an excellent barter item.

Can't you just use a cork?
I guess I should start drinking more wine!!
Kidding aside, this was somewhat of an eye opener for me. Gotta think of everything.

Or maybe we could outlaw menstration?
^^^ +1.

From a prepping standpoint, I think it wouldn't hurt to get a couple of those cups to have on hand. That's what I would use if TSHTF, it's just not my favorite method. My favorite method is lots of alcohol, a heat pad and a vacation on the beach. ;)
