Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I wanted to know a bit more about these. I really want to try these (cheaper in the long run, environmentally friendly, and I wouldn't run out of pads at the most awkward times).
There is one major problem though: I'm in college, and essentially obliged to use public restrooms. The only restrooms in the dorms are the public type with stalls. Also, they are all coed (which I guess could be hilarious... ). How feasible is it to deal with in this sort of situation, or should I just wait a few years to try one? I don't much care about washing a bloody thing in front of the guys in my dorm (I'd be teasing them about it, not the other way around), but it seems awkward to use in a public restroom. I do know of one essentially unused female restroom, but it still has the stall setup I think. I'm not sure-first I'd have to find it, which is far from trivial because the architect of our dorms was absolutely insane, and it's not really in a location most people go.
