There are women who get addicted and never stop buying menstrual cloth (I've talked to some women here who have 100 or more pads), and there are women like me who are very picky about their menstrual cloth so that it may take a while to recover from mistake purchases once one is able to budget in the preferred cloth, replacing the "mistakes." However, as long as you stop buying when you really don't need any more, mama cloth will pay off. Since I already had a very "lean" and orderly period product system prior to menstrual cloth, it will take a few years for my cloth pad purchases to pay off. But I've talked to mamas who have been using the brands I'm going with for many years more than that. So my purchase should pay off... just not right away.
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!
