Care & Cleansing
Menstrual Cup Cleansing
Your menstrual cup should be cleaned every time you remove it. Although silicone can resist bacteria, it’s still necessary to keep your cup clean to avoid serious vaginal issues, please don’t put yourself at risk.
As we know, your menstrual cup can be worn for up to 12 hours a day and emptied at least once or twice a day depending on your flow. In between that time, it has been said that you can cleanse your cup with warm water and mild, unscented soap. An easier method would be to use our Menstrual Cup Sterilizer, and if you're looking for something on the go, the Collapsible Menstrual Disinfectant & Storage Cup, or Mini UV Menstrual Cup Disinfection Box will be perfect! Washing your menstrual cup surely removes dirt and stains, but it isn’t enough to get rid of all the harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mold spores.
The germicidal UV Light from the sterilizer and disinfection box destroys undesirable germs that survive in your wash without causing irritation or allergy problems. Oh, and by the way, there's no need for detergent or soap.
Our sterilizer and disinfection box will break molecular bonds in the DNA of viruses and bacteria that stick to menstrual cups, rendering them unable to reproduce and effectively killing them. Hence, leaving you with a healthy menstruation cycle as promised.
Eco Pad Cleansing
It's imperative to take appropriate care of your eco pads in order to keep up their life span for the years to come. The principle and purpose of purchasing eco pads are to decrease waste and save lots and lots of money. If properly cared for, you can accomplish these two things.
Note: There is no right, or wrong, strategy for cleaning your eco pad. It's about which strategy best accommodates your level of ease and daily lifestyle. We highly suggest using the handwashing method for longevity purposes.
Soaking & Rinsing Method:
- Soaking or rinsing not long after use is crucial to avoid stains from blood, urine or discharge setting in.
- Choose a container, bucket, or even your sink to soak your eco pads in.
- If you're traveling you could use a reusable waterproof menstrual wet bag to store soaked eco pads in until you get home.
- Use cold water instead of hot. DO NOT use hot water as this can set any stains.
- Before use, if the eco pad is heavily soiled, rinse it before putting it in the water to soak.
- The time allotted for soaking is up to your discretion, depends on how stained the eco pads are.
- For semi-used pads, pre-rinse is not necessary.
- Once the eco pads have finished soaking it's time to rinse them.
- Remove your eco pads from the used water and place them in the sink, tub, or shower to rinse.
- Rinse and wring them out gently until you see no traces of blood or the water is running clear.
- Additionally, you can add detergent to tackle those hard to get out stains. Please refer to the washing method below.
- To dry your eco pads you can either hang them outside in the sunlight to help fade stains and rid any bacteria, place them in the dryer on low heat
- (please do not use dryer sheets), or we suggest using our New Generation Undergarment Sterilizer.
