"As I started to reduce my waste it became clear very quickly that my bathroom bin was now mainly full of cotton wool pads. While they don't contain plastic, they come wrapped in plastic. A lot of resources go into making these pads which I was using for just seconds. These pads from Cheeky Wipes were the second brand of pads that I tried and I have loved these. I use them to remove make up and apply toner."

Advantages...

  • Pads are 100% plastic-free
  • These are thick pads meaning you can use both side before putting in the wash
  • Wash well

Disadvantages...

  • Initial cost
  • Shipped in a bioplastic polybag (last ordered Oct 2018)

Costs...

This is initially an expensive switch at £9.95 for 10 when you can buy cotton wool pads from Aldi at 0.3p each. But I hope to reuse these many many times.

Where to Buy...

Available in white and black

Direct from Cheeky Wipes

Tips...

  • Wash these pads before first use as they did initially shed a little
  • Put them in a wash bag, a pillowcase or even a sock to stop the pads getting stuck in the door seal during a wash
  • I hang my pads to air-dry and I've found its better to un-crumple the pads when they first come out of the washing machine so they dry flat
  • The pads are also available in black which might be better if you’re frequently removing eye make-up, or you mainly wash dark colours
  • I have washed at 30 or 40 degrees
