Are cloth menstrual pads hard to care for?
Not at all.  Just toss them in with your regular laundry.  They don’t need to be washed separately and there’s no need to pre-soak unless you want to.


I've been using your pads for a year now and they are my favourite by far. I tried 3 other brands last year as well, just to see how they compare, but New Moon makes the most comfortable pads ever!
I love the prints too.

The Monthly Book 
Maids, Wives, Widows is a lively exploration of the everyday lives of women in early modern England, from 1540-1740. The book uncovers details of how women filled their days, what they liked to eat and drink, what jobs they held, and how they raised their children. With chapters devoted to beauty regimes, fashion, and literature, the book also examines the cultural as well as the domestic aspect of early modern women’s lives. Further, the book answers questions such as how women understood and dealt with their monthly periods and what it was like to give birth in a time before modern obstetric care was available.
