Re: Cloth pads - what do you like best?
I answered your survey elsewhere. I just wanted to alert you to an idea I saw amy's rag bag using (I haven't tried her pads; they are not the right sizes or design for me). She has pads with a tencel top. She says that the tencel has similar properties to bamboo velour even though it is a weave and not a velour. I used to have some tencel clothing items that I just loved--they were breathable and felt like silk but sturdier and had a pleasant sheen to them--and I'm fascinated by tencel as a pad fabric possibility. Some really high end underwear is made of tencel.
Just thought I'd mention it in case it interests you,
Deodorants, Oils, and Diapersticks!
If you always thought you sweat or smelled too strongly to use natural deodorants, my unusually strong but gentle deos may be for you! https://www.etsy.com/shop/DJDeodorants
