How to Use Your Sew Mukwano Cloth Pad Kit

Thank you so much for your purchase! I hope you love your pads as much as I loved making them for you. Cloth pads are good for you, good for the environment, cost-friendly and actually very easy to use and clean! Follow these simple instructions to prolong the life of your new cloth pads! 

Usage Instructions:

These pads are for light-Moderate/heavy flow. Pads should be changed every 2-5 hours, depending on your personal flow and personal preference. The heavier the flow, the shorter the pad will last. 

Tips & Tricks:

Rinse off any excess debris. 

Hand wash or machine wash on delicate mode. 

If you machine wash, you can add a small amount of vinegar to keep fresh. 

Do not bleach. 

Line dry or machine dry on a low setting.


While I do pre-treat and wash the materials before making, it is recommended you wash before use.
