Ok, so I wasbrowsing for some cloth diaper tutorials when I saw a link for making your own tampons and I thought how in the hell can you make a freaking tampon? Well, you stuff a baby sock up your vag, that's how. And who the hell could fit 2 socks up there? 

Buy 6 pair (or more) of 100% cotton white baby socks. Wash (and dry) three times with a natural, mild soap - rinsing well. At your next period, simply roll up one baby sock into a tight roll, and insert as you would a paper tampon. If you need more absorbency, use two baby socks rolled up.
Replace it with the next baby sock as needed. Rinse the used one out well, and store dry until washday.

From your friendly ER nurse...please do NOT stick a baby sock in your vagina!  We do NOT enjoy going to look for lost belongings in vaginas!  Thank you!

All I can think of is how uncomfortable (and dry) that would be!

I just keep using pads.

I'd imagine someone might lose one up there and have to go fishing for it. Gross.
