    While I am finishing the store bought pads I already have, I just started buying and making the switch to cloth pads. And I'm doing so by supporting a Latinx owned small business!

    I already buy body wash bars from a local business. As far as shampoo and conditioner, I still use one I buy in store, but I try to make my own out of natural ingredients in my own reusable bottles as often I can.
