I don't save my felt ones but I do save the foam ones, they still work great and it doesn't seem to use as much ink. I have tried the makeup sponges and they don't seem to work as nice as the form pads. HTH someone.

I just make my own new felt pads with felt and cut it to shape so I can just toss it after blending. For the foam ones I just use rectangle makeup sponges and glue felt on the one side so it sticks to the velcro -- its the same foam and works great and FAR cheaper than buying the Adirondack refill pads or Inkssentials cut n' dry pads (both Ranger products).
