1. Always boil your cup before and after your period for 10 mins in a large pot, while giving it a good stir from time to time. Make sure that it does not come in contact with the sides, or bottom of the pot as that could melt the silicone. In other words, keep an eye on it like it’s your wild drunk friend at a bar have it’s back and protect it like its got yours! (Ps, we’re talkin’ to cup vets and newbies alike, it’s always great to boil your FLEX Cup to make sure your cup is properly sanitized for the sake of its longevity and your vaginal health.) #protectdatp
2. When at home, start with clean hands and wash your cup with the warmest water you can stand + oil and fragrance-free soap. Pro-tip: to clean the inside of your cup, fill it with that same soapy blend and place a palm over the opening. Swish that around for a minute or two making sure that water runs through the air holes located on the top of your cup.
3. When on the go, regular warm tap water will get the job done until you can properly clean your cup. Personally, we’re up for strutting to the sink with pride (we all have periods, it’s okay) BUT if you’re not bold enough or can’t make it to one, bring a water bottle into the stall to give your cup a quick rinse and reinsert. Then go on about your day! You did it, we love you. Get a damn gluten-free, vegan donut you deserve it!
