A Few Extra Tips

👉 Before Use: Always start with a clean slate. Use any of the above methods to thoroughly clean your cup before its first use.

👉 Daily Cleaning: Keep that cup sparkling by cleaning it every day after use. And remember, wash your hands before cleaning and inserting your cup for that extra layer of hygiene.

👉 End of Cycle: When Aunt Flo's visit ends, make sure to give your cup a final clean and let it air dry completely before storing it in your holder or another pouch.

👉 Treat with Care: Our cups are silicone, so avoid oil-based products that can break down the material. And please avoid using anything acidic or chemical to clean – we're all about keeping things gentle and irritation-free.
