~Fresh Moon Pads~
Created by the very talented work-at-home-mom, Kendell Schafer of Alberta, Canada,and now made in the USA, Fresh Moon SnapOn cloth menstrual pads are an interchangeable system that allows you to customize your day-to-day absorbency needs. A fast drying SnapOn system consisting of a trim body and soakers; you choose what 'snaps on'.
Choose from wool or polyester fleece as a barrier body. Pair them with light/medium flow soakers or the new medium/heavy double soakers. For lighter flow, simply snap on the single soaker pad; for medium or heavier flow, use the new fold-under double soaker. You can use the bodies through 2-4 soaker changes depending on your flow, and arrange different combinations to customize for your personal cycle pattern.
Contoured holder with wings that wrap around the underwear and have two snap closure settings. 9" has two sockets to attach the soakers, while the 11" and 13" have three. Wool and fleece are considered barrier bodies and will help prevent leaks on your underwear and pants.
Bodies can be reused by snapping in a clean soaker pad; much like a diaper cover they can be spot clean and air dried for use later that day. Wool should be hand washed and line dried while the WinPro can be machine washed and dried with no special care requirements.

Single soakers are suitable for light to medium flow; typically having 3 layers of absorbent fabrics.
Double Soakers are extra long soaker that folds under and snaps to itself before being attached to the body piece, creating a soaker that is twice as absorbent as a single. Double Soakers are suited for medium to heavy flow. Topping fabrics are sewn to the top-facing portion of the soaker only.
Postpartum Soakers are 14" and extra wide with flared ends for maximum coverage especially while lying down. Internally sewn soaker for extra absorbency. These can be worn inside full-cut underwear alone (without SnapOn body) as well.

Sea sponges are perfect for tampon substitutes. All natural sea sponges contain no chemicals or synthetic fibers, making them the natural choice for women looking for discrete protection. Comfortable and easy to use, our sea sponges conform to the natural curves of your body.
TSS (toxic shock syndrome) is caused by bacterium s. aureus in the blood stream. The close link between tampons and TSS are believed to be due to the tiny lacerations tampons cause to the vaginal wall during insertion as well as the wounds from the vaginal tissue being excessively dried out by tampons. Sea sponges are soft and do not dry out the vaginal walls.
Our sponges are thoroughly cleaned, inspected and sanitized prior to being packaged. Like tampons, they are not sterile, so you should clean them prior to using them. These are real sea sponges, so occassionally they may contain coral fragments or other debris. Please inspect them prior to using as it is possible we missed something.
To use: Wash hands thoroughly before handling your sponge. Wet your sponge and squeeze excess water out. Squash the sponge between your fingers and insert it into your vagina, pushing it in until it feels comfortable and securely in place. Every 3-4 hours, remove your sponge by gently pinching a large portion and gently pulling out (bearing down lightly might help push the tampon down for easier retrieval). Rinse thoroughly, squeeze out excess water and reinsert.
To clean: Do not boil! This will toughen and deteriorate them! Natural cleansing methods and ingredients do a better job and do not upset your pH balance like detergents. Our recommendations are to soak in any of these solutions for 15 minutes or more:
1. 1 tsp. colloidal silver mixed in 1 cup of warm water. (Our favorite as bacteria and viruses cannot survive more than 6 minutes with exposure to colloidal silver.)
2. 1 Tbsp. baking soda mixed in 1 cup of warm water.
3. 2 Tbsp. hydrogen peroxide mixed in 1 cup of warm water. (Great for removing blood stains from the sponges too!)
4. 2 drops of tea tree oil mixed in 1 cup of warm water.
5. 1 tsp. of sea salt mixed in 1 cup of warm water.
Another wonderful sanitizer and bleacher is sunlight. Make sure you clean and dry your sponges at the end of your cycle and store them in your bag when not in use.
2. Sea sponges may leak during heavier flows. You can use two sponges during the heaviest cycles, many women prefer the security of our Simple Liners as a back up.
3. Safe to use all night.
4. If you struggle to remove your sponges, you may sew a piece of dental floss or cotton string to your sponge. Pull gently as it can tear!

usage instructions, 2 sea sponge tampons, 1 embroidered muslin bag (flower
embroidery will vary).
