it's not that scary
The only scary thing is how much an eco-friendly bathroom MAKES SENSE!
- You save you money (loads of money).
- Save annoying run outs and midnight dashes.
- You reduce the amount of toxins you are exposed to.
- Reduce the amount of pollution destroying our planet!!!
BEST EVER SKIN TIP
This one is short and sweet!
It is my best tip to reduce waste in the bathroom and have baby soft skin, it's inexpensive, chemical free, reduces plastic bottles in the bathroom and also means you are not having to stand and freeze for ages after a shower in the colder months!
Basically my tip is to get and old squeezy sauce or other bottle and fill it with almost all the way up with coconut oil, leaving about a inch of room to and any liquid oil you choose; almond, grapeseed, olive etc. Sit in hot water until they melt together, give it a good shake and add a few fragrance drops if you like.
Keep it is the shower and at the end of each shower carefully squeeze directly on your skin from top to bottom massaging in as you go. The liquid oil keeps it from setting too hard but over the colder months you may have to keep a extra container in the shower to fill with hot water straight away and sit the coconut oil in it to soften while you shower, but aside from that it's pretty easy and very effective!
Organic, cheap, no chemicals on you or going down the drain, no microbeads, less excess plastic containers...just soft naturally beautiful skin all year round! Whalaa!
All Of Your Menstrual Questions Answered
If you wonder if a reusable bathroom make sense? Is it realistic? Is it hygenic? Like most things in life the hesitation is in the unknown.
We recently sent out a questionnaire to a ton of awesome ladies, many who had purchased one of our reusable bathroom items but also many who hadn't. We asked if they had used any of the items and if they were happy with them, and we also asked what concerns there were about using the menstrual cups. We also asked them to throw the unedited nitty gritty at us, and we got a fantastic response so WELL DONE to over 100 women who responded and gave us an invaluable insight into what information we can provide you with.
We have had all of your Menstrual Cup questions answered in a easy to read drop down box format below, and we also have a detailed article to cover the more in depth information. Soooo here we go......x
Fitted correctly, Confidence Cups create a seal against the vaginal wall and can hold twice as much as a tampon, preventing leakage. Too prevent leakage for first time users, practice fitting the Confidence Cup in advance.
The simple movements involved in removing the Confidence Cup means you do not have to touch or see blood. Simply squeeze the bottom of the cup to break the seal and use the stalk to remove it and tip the contents into the toilet. Do not pull it by the stalk. Also, the Confidence Cup does not sit high inside the vagina, so you will not be fishing around for it.
No. Given that menstrual blood is held inside the body inside a container sealed against your body, and briefly comes into contact with air when it is emptied, they will have less odour than traditional sanitary applications.
It’s as simple as filling the case it comes with (along with the Confidence Cup as well) with water and popping it into the microwave oven. This will kill any microbes on it.
Confidence Cups are made from medical grade silicone. Sterilised and cleaned according to the instructions means they will last for many years.
Medical grade silicone does not harbor bacteria or fungi. Sterilisation according to the instructions will ensure they stay hygienic and clean for a long time.
Yes. Microwaving your Confidence Cup in water in the collapsible cup provided will kill all pathogens.
Confidence Cups are made of very pliable soft silicone that mould and fit to the contours of the inside of your vagina. If you can insert a tampon, then these are just as easy. It’s a misconception also that the cup has to be pushed all the way up. In fact, the cup just sits inside the entrance to the vagina. (See in depth article for diagram)
Fitted correctly, you will not even know that it is there.
Once the Confidence Cup is fitted, it creates a seal against the tissue of the vaginal wall, making it virtually impossible to flip upside down.
Given that the Confidence Cup lasts up to ten years, the savings made on purchasing sanitary products can amount to thousands of dollars over that time. With the Confidence Cup, you will never run out of sanitary supplies.
Once fitted properly they cannot be felt. Some women may have a low sitting cervix and may need to trim the stalk back to adjust to their body size and prevent the stalk poking out.
This will depend on the type and amount of damage. If you an insert a tampon, then it is safe to use a menstrual Confidence Cup.
The FDA approved medical grade silicone is soft and pliable and works in with the natural contours of your vagina. You should feel no pain.
For heavy bleeding use the larger cup, it holds up to 35mls of fluid which is still four times more than a tampon. This means that you will have to change it four times less than a tampon.
Yes. The blood is inert and will sit inside the Confidence Cup until it is emptied.
They can be a little messy, especially in the beginning. But this is another reason we added the matching collapsible case, you can keep it in your handbag and if you are going into a toilet cubicle that doesn't have a sink in there you simply fill the case with water first so you can easily give it a quick rinse after emptying the cup.

Best money spent! I love love these pads! So easy to use, wash, transport and I don’t soak through them! Thank you for a genius amazing product! The price is also so affordable that I have three pads!
These stainless pegs are the best ever. Bought a bundle last year to try and they're so good just purchased a second lot. No more pegs breaking or needing a peg basket and boy they grip so wind is no longer an issue with the washing. Brilliant.
I have been using the drip coffee method for the past 10 years and been annoyed at the amount of filters that I waste and buying the old Melitta pour over coffee filters from op-shops have become increasingly difficult so when I stumbled across this product I thought I’d give it a try… It is great quality, makes delicious coffee and less waste! Can highly recommend!
Great value and such beautiful material for the outside of the pads and love the dome up idea. Great to have the centre of the pad black. Am going to save the environment and money on disposables. Arrived in about two days beautifully packed and wrapped with a friendly personal card and note. Excellent service!
I would seriously recommend these, you can keep it on all day because it’s super absorbent, wash it in warm water then hang to dry and use again. I’ve been using mine for sometime and the material is not showing any signs or wear. Saving so much money not having to buy disposable products now.
I have been meaning to get some reusable cotton pads. I had a bunch of toner going unused because I couldn't bring myself to buy the single-use pads.
This product is really good value for money. The pads are a really great size and it feels good on the skin. The effect of the product is not changed by using this product (if anything, it seems to work better).
I purchased a set for myself, love them so much that I have purchased two more separately as gifts for others. So easy to use. So easy to clean. Highly recommended
I was sceptical that the milk pod would do what I wanted. But i was pleasently surprised at how well the milk powder steamed through and frothed. I'm still working out the right ratios of milk powder to cocoa or drinking chocolate for a nice rich creamy hot chocolate drink that doesn't taste to watery. But for the milk based coffees this is works just perfectly
I’m taking steps to reduce my plastic usage and switching to an old school razor is a great option. I have one and now my daughter. Great shave definitely recommend making the swap!
Had bought reusable pads elsewhere that were not so good, so was hesitant about trying this product. Could not have been happier with it, I’m about to buy more as found this to be the most comfortable and most absorbant pad I’ve ever used. Will never again use a disposable pad.
Finally!! I found the dustpan and brush I’ve been looking for. The pan has only a v slight lip so bits n pieces go in easily. The brush has thick soft bristles good for moving little as well as big bits of stuff off the floor. And it’s not plastic!!
Love these collapsible reusable straws. Love them so much my child wanted to give them to her friends at a recent birthday sleepover. Awesome customer service and very prompt delivery. Definitely recommend.
I bought one set of these right after I finished my last period, not really knowing what to expect, and I have to say I am sold; I bought another set right after using a couple this week. They're so comfortable and soft, and definitely not as bulky as you'd think. Oddly satisfying to clean too, as I hand-wash first before they go in the washing machine later. They're convenient and fit easily in your bag, and are so pretty. They've 100% made me feel better about my period. The shipping and customer service is incredible too! Highly, highly recommend to anyone even considering making the change.
Love it! The end bit was a little long but was able to trim it to fit better. I also love the storage holder and use it to keep it in my bag.
I bought a pack of these 6 months ago. Then I waited about 6 months to test them out. We live by the ocean and I am.pleased to report they are still shining like new. So, I have now bought another pack. They look stylish. Great grip on them. They're just awesome!
