Homemade Sanitary Pads

How do you make cloth sanitary napkins? I've seen them on the internet. I can't afford to buy the ones online, but think I could make my own.

Artful folding can get you by without sewing, it worked for our great-great-great grandmothers. (03/05/2009)

Although I am beyond having a period in age, I do have incontinence and do so very much appreciate the ideas. I will also quilt the layers together because I have found them to be more absorbent for a liquid than the plain unquilted pads. I have in emergencies used old face cloths folded three times, which work fine, but it may not work for all women's fit. Good luck and God bless. : ) (03/08/2009)

If you fold without sewing they will wash cleaner. (03/14/2009)

When I was newly widowed around 20 years ago, without means and living alone, I simply got the wash cloths and folded them to a narrow strip, and when they were dirty, rinsed them thoroughly then threw them in a small bucket of hydrogen peroxide for a while before washing them. The HP eats the proteins and everything else washes away. This worked for while I was at home, I didn't try it out and about. (07/18/2009)
