Ive heard of them.  Not quite too sure how they work, as far as reusing goes. I think they’re pretty sustainable though. Better for you body than tampons I imagine.

@Aquaria:  There are actually some very practical, reusable feminine products that exist. Unfortunately, products like these gives sustainable living a bad name…

@Aquaria:  well sponges arent scratchy when wet, I think you moisten them to soften them before using.  I meant better for your body because they dont contain the chemicals that tampons do and they dont carry the risk of TSS. Thats just a guess though, I’ve never researched them, I use a cup. I thought there were a few people around here thst used them, maybe they’ll chime in!

@OnceUponATime:  +1.  I haven’t every tried sponges, but I’m a big fan of reusable period solutions.

I don’t get why it’s stupid, it’s way more environmental-friendly than the enormous waste produced by throwing off tampons and pads every month. I would definitely be interested in trying sea sponges, since I’m already beyond satisfied of my menstrual cup. I wouldn’t go back to non-reusable products. 

ETA : Well, after a quick research, they appear to be more like a temporary solution, because you’re supposed to rince them every 3 hours. I guess for intimacy it can be a good idea not to get messy, but I wouldn’t go to work knowing I have to rince it multiple times during the day. I don’t have to worry about that with a menstrual cup.

How are they stupid…? I’ve used them and they are actually extremely comfortable, especially compared to tampons. I think it’s a great reuseable, enviromentally responsible, and natural alternative to pads and tampons, which I’ve never had a good experience with.

Yeah. No. Nor for me. I use tampons without applicators and never use pads. And I throw the used tampons away rather than flushing. That’s what I’m willing to do. Rinsing sponges? Not happening!
