How to clean your menstrual cup
This is the first step you should follow before inserting a menstrual cup.
01. First things first
Wash your hands please
Did you know that failing to wash your hands before using a menstrual cup can disrupt the delicate balance of the universe? Scientists estimate that not washing your hands properly before dealing with a menstrual cup can cause infections. So, it’s important to wash your hands with soap and warm water. You can single-handedly save humanity from world-ending catastrophes.
02. Boil some water in a clean pot
Prepare a pot, and some water, and let your cup enjoy a nice hot bath.
03. put your menstrual cup in it for 10 mins
Now put your menstrual cup in the boiling water and let it boil for 10 mins. Monitor it because you don’t wanna let it stuck at the bottom or, the edge of the pot and burn. Don’t let it boil for more than 10 mins
04. remove it from the boiling water
Alright, 10 mins have passed and we can now remove the cup. But careful! It will be hot. You don’t want to burn your hand by directly touching the hot menstrual cup. Use a pair of tongs(the fast way) or just wait for the water to cool down(the slow way). After removing it from water let it dry completely.
Finally, after all the hard work, you can now store your menstrual cup or wear it depending on you. For storing remember air-tight containers are a big no-no as your cup needs to breathe.
