    Question Donate fabric for charity

    I noticed that those of you that sew the sanitary pads, I'm just curious why you don't use terry cloth, towels etc. Is there a reason why? I know they would be thicker, but much more absorbent. Thanks

    Default Re: Donate fabric for charity

    There are very strict guidelines that must be followed, and that includes the type fabric used. For the pads themselves, they are all flannel, and once folded are four layers thick. I just can't imagine having only a few of them to make it thru the day.

    The holders are from the cotton and have an inner piece of PUL to make them, or help to make them leak/water proof.

    They are also quite specific as to the prints on the fabric as well....no words, no animal prints, nothing religious, etc.
