|Cloth is a wonderful alternative
to disposable products. They are very comfortable, easy to use,
dependable, cost effective, and earth friendly. Cloth
can be used by women and teens even on their heaviest days. When you
choose cloth, you are reducing
environmental waste, supporting small business and women's industry!

frequently asked question is, "which fabric to choose?".
All three of our commonly used fabrics, flannel, cotton
and organic bamboo velour, are terrific fabrics for cloth.

and is the most economical. Cotton velour is extra soft and
durable and absorbent. Organic bamboo velour is the silkiest,
softest fabric (true luxury!), is extra absorbent, and stain resistant.
common question is whether we use organic fabrics.
Our organic bamboo velour (OBV) is certified organic,
the dyes we use in our hand-dyeing process are not. If you
prefer to have your cloth made with undyed OBV, just ask! We

|When properly cared for, cloth will last many
years. You can store cloth prior to washing either wet or
dry. We recommend the dry method, particularly if you have small
children to whom buckets pose a drowning hazard. Presoaking in cold
water will reduce staining on light colored cloth.
Keep a covered bucket or pot in your washroom. Fill it halfway with
cool water (you can add baking soda and/or essential oils to control
odor). Toss soiled cloth into the water to soak and change water daily.
Wash thoroughly at the end of the week.
Store soiled pads in an empty covered bucket or waterproof cloth bag in
the end of the week, empty bucket into your washer, add some towels
to make a full load, and wash with detergent and cold or warm water for
the longest cycle (gentle agitation, if available).
can wash in hot, but hot water often sets stains and is hard on fabric.
Although we pre-wash all of our fabrics prior to cutting and sewing,
they have a high natural fiber content (cotton and
bamboo) and may shrink when washed and/or dried at high temperatures.
We recommend primarily warm or cold washing. You may wish to
occasionally with hot water to sanitize and remove detergent build-up.
Hot washes should also be used when you are fighting any irritation
or infection. Please do not use chlorine bleach on your cloth. It will
quickly deteriorate the fabric and is highly toxic to all living things
or machine dry at moderate temperatures. Do not use fabric softeners in
the wash or in dryer sheet form. Fabric softeners will cause your cloth
to repel rather then absorb moisture. You can lay clean damp cloth in a
sunny spot for Mother Nature's natural stain remover!

our line of boutique children's clothing and cloth diapers. We are
pleased to support Kiva.org. Kiva allows us, with help from our
customers, to fund small business loans for women entrepreneurs in
developing countries. As these loans are repaid (as they
always are) we can then redirect those funds to new developing
businesses. You can visit The Essence of Eve's lender page here.
