A question we always get asked by those new to the idea of cloth is: if I'm out and need to change my pad, what do I do with the used one? Well, the answer to this is a simple one. Take off the used pad and place it into a small make up pouch with waterproof lining (I had lots of these sorts of pouches thanks to the endless Christmas body care sets that always seem to contain one). As long as used cloth pads are allowed to breathe (think zip topped pouch or just leave a ziplock bag mostly open if you haven't got a pouch), they tend not to produce any kind of offensive odour. The used pad can then be put with your other used pads ready for when you intend on washing them. Easy peasy!
