How do I clean my menstrual cup between my monthly uses?
When speaking of cleaning menstrual cup, I feel women quite anxious about the hygiene side of it. It makes me think of doctors that will give you antibiotics just to be on the safe side so they can’t be taken to court in case something goes wrong.
Menstrual cup brands also protect themselves.
– store it in a clean cotton pouch
– wash it with neutral soap that won’t leave residue that could cause irritation
– make sure the little holes near the rim are clean
– if you had some kind of infection, thrush or whatnot, do boil your cup or disinfect it somehow. There are many ways to do it. You can read some more about that on: how to use a menstrual cup
