Since it's silicone, I'm guessing I can clean it the same way I would my menstrual cup: soap, water, and letting it air dry. Yes? The reputable sites I'm Googling suggest this is the case, but I just wanted to double check here.
Also, does anyone know about the suitability of cotton corduroy for the top fabric in cloth menstrual pads? Apparently, with my post-Mirena flow, I still do not have enough pads unless I want to do laundry twice a day during my period. And appropriately themed cloth pads are key to keeping me amused by rather than frightened of the amount of fluid I lose during them. (Read: I currently have a hate-hate-fear-hate relationship with my period. Getting to bleed on cool-looking pads does a little to mitigate that fear and hate; therefore, this is kind of a big deal to me.)
Because I'm incredibly picky, I've had problems finding a cotton print or flannel that I like well enough. I found some cotton corduroys that I did like, but I wasn't sure if they'd work sufficiently well. They're 100% cotton, so I think they'd still be fairly breathable and absorbent; the ones I saw also felt as soft as cotton flannel, so I think they'd still be comfortable.
Has anyone ever actually used cotton corduroy for cloth pads, or would I be embarking on another Fun Vagina Experiment if I tried this?
