So I’m not actually due on for another week so can’t say how well they work, but these arrived today! I bought them from Feminine Wear and used there select search option to find ones with no plastic. Even better I also had a promo code so got 10% off as well, I’m not sure if I have enough for my full period, but I do have some tampons to use up as well, so for this first both I’ll probably use both.
I found an unopened packet of towels that I had, so I’ll be donating those to the food bank in town so that someone else can make use of them. Hopefully I’ll not need to buy anymore for myself.
