BEFORE FIRST USE
Always sanitize your new cup before first use! This is easiest to do by boiling the cup for 5-10 minutes.
DURING YOUR CYCLE
Each time you empty your cup, rinse it in the sink. Soap is not mandatory. If you do use a soap, be sure it's something mild, not heavy fragrance, and be sure to rinse completely clean.
If you are worried about staining, rinsing with cool water first, will help prevent staining.
BETWEEN YOUR CYCLE
When your period is over, sanitize your Bloody Buddy Cup before storing, so it's ready for your next period.
You can sanitize using one of our NEW steamer bags or by boiling your cup.
Our new steamer bags are a quick, easy option. Pop your cup in the bag, the bag in the microwave, 3 minutes later, voila! Sanitized! The bags are re-usable for 20 uses. That's nearly 2 years if with a regular cycle.
To sanitize by boiling on the stove, place your cup in boiling water for 3 minutes. If you don't want to use the families sauce pan (btw boiling kills any germs...but we get it...) you can also microwave a mug of water to a boil and then placing your cup in the mug for several minutes.
After sanitizing with your preferred method, allow your Bloody Buddy to air dry. Then place in one of the provided storage bags or another breathable container, and your cup will be clean and ready for your next period!
