Our Happy Customers
I have been using it for the last 2 Years. It feels great to switch to an eco eco-friendly Product, It is very easy to wash and dry. I am able to work for longer hours now.
I was allergic to Disposal Pads and was using rough clothes but was uncomfortable. My life changed post I switched to using Merapad. It is very comfortable and soft. I feel safe and also recommend others to switch to Merapad.
