🌱  FAQs about the Mini Starter Set

Are reusables a ton of work?  Will I need to invest in an antique washtub and start making my own lye soap?! 

No worries!  Reusable pads are super easy to care for, taking just a few minutes each cycle.  No washboard or homemade lye soap needed!  Scroll down or click through the pics above to see our easy care routine.  And, we include instructions with every purchase to make it super-simple for you!

Will they leak? I don't want to be embarrassed!

Not only are our pads very absorbent, they are also backed with a terrific technical fabric, soft shell, which is breathable and waterproof.  As well, a special feature of our pads is the channel stitch (the fancy scallop down the centre) we add, which helps direct flow to the centre.  So, wear with confidence!

How many more pads will I need for a complete set?

Since everyone is different, we can't say exactly how many you'll want, but the beauty of this set is that it will allow you to test out three different lengths and absorbencies, to see which ones you'd like more of and what will work best for you.  You might find our blog post, How Many Reusable Pads Will I Need? helpful.

How long will these pads last?

While the standard answer is that you should your pads to last about 5 years, we find this an extremely conservative estimate.

When will my order ship?

It will be on its way to you within 5 business days. Most of our packages ship via Canada Post's untracked lettermail.  If you wish your parcel to be trackable, please add this option at checkout.

These aren't made in a sweat shop somewhere, right?

Absolutely right!  Our pads are all sewn by women in their homes right here in Ontario, Canada. While our seamstresses are paid by the piece, we pay a rate equivalent to a living wage.

🌱  Pads Included:

  • One Long Heavy Absorbency (feather print in the centre)
  • One Standard Moderate Absorbency (amethyst print on the left)
  • One Standard Short Light Absorbency (marble galaxy print on the right)

    Amazing Quality

    Upon starting my reusable pad journey - I bought from 4 different companies to try them out. AmiePads was one of them and I can say HANDS DOWN this is the best of the 4 companies!! The fact they are fully made in Canada and not sourced to China is super important to me to support local. The cute designs mentally are a massive pick me up for me as I struggle with PCOS and can bleed for 2-29 days. The quality is absolutely amazing - pads stay in place where they need to be, no crumpling and bunching like a traditional store bought pads, zero irritation from my lady parts which is such a blessing, AND they are breathable and comfortable and not thick like a mattress is where they have the other companies I’ve tried best entirely!! Also had to email with the owner to sort some tech issues out and Christine was beyond amazing, kind, professional, and helpful.

    100% would recommend these pads to anyone wanting to test the reusable pad waters if you will. You will not be disappointed and will forever want to buy more and more as the patterns and fabrics are so so pretty 💗

    Incredible quality and design

    I'm so thrilled to have discovered Amie Reusable Pads. I've tried other reusable pads in the past, and I have to say these are by far the most well-made. They are comfortable, soft, easy to wash, and have lovely patterns. I bought some for my daughter too, and this will allow her to begin her journey into womanhood with a healthy option, both for her body and the earth. I am grateful, and would recommend these pads for all women who are interested in a much better option. In the long run, you are also saving money by investing in something of quality that you can reuse!

    Great quality!

    They are well made, pretty and comfortable. They are quite absorbent and no leakage. Are a bit narrow between clips though
