“But what if I’m not at home and I need to clean my cup?” No worries. Below is a handy guide for the best way to take care of your new companion, no matter where you are.

At Work, I Can't Wash my cup with the Washing Liquid. Should I Wash the Cup with Perfumed Soap or Tap Water?
No. Perfumed soaps with unknown pH values might coat the cup with a layer of irritants that could damage the precious mucous membrane of the vagina. Some of these soaps may also contain agents that might damage the silicone. It's better to wash cup with tap water than use the wrong kind of soap. Cup is smooth on the inside, making it easy to clean with water alone.
