How do I use the sterilising cup?
Place your menstrual cup into the disinfection cup and fill it up with water. The menstrual cup has to start swimming. The correct wattage settings depend on your microwave model. The water must be boiling for the disinfection to be effective. If in doubt, please consult your microwave manual. Most customers use medium power level / wattage for 3 - 5 minutes. The cup's lid must not be completely sealed: otherwise the steam produced by the boiling water cannot escape.
The disinfection cup is now very hot because of the heating process. Please take appropriate safety measures (pot cloth, oven mittens) for your hands and be very careful when removing the disinfection cup from the microwave. You might as well let the cup and it's contents cool down inside the microwave to be on the safe side.
The cup holders are available in clear or purple (not shown). If you have a preference then please reply to your order confirmation letting us know which colour you prefer.

I LOVE IT! First time I used my menstrual cup for a period I had to boil it in a pot to sterilise it. It took a long time and my family kept asking questions! With this wonder I only have to pop it in the microwave for a few minutes, let it cool a bit, pour the water off, and BAM! fully sterilized cup in a fraction of the time boiling it in a pot did. I couldn't be happier!Reviewer: Lois from Doncaster
So glad I bought this for peace of mind. It does what it's meant to do and folds flat for easy storage. I filled the sterilising cup with boiling water, dropped my lunette in, balanced the lid on top without sealing it and microwaved on full power for 4 minutes. It was very hot afterwards, and because our water is very hard there was a fine coat of chalk on my lunette and inside the sterilising cup, so after it had cooled down, I rinsed both with cold water before storing.Reviewer: Sarah from United Kingdom
Great idea! I got mine in orange and it saves me having to boil it on the stove in my communal kitchen! lolReviewer: Clare R from S Wales
I am very glad I purchased this item. I wanted to sterilise my cup at the end of each cycle however the old saucepan I set aside for this purpose disintegrated. Not having another spare to set aside and not wanting to be committed to purchasing tablets etc I spotted this which is the perfect solution. The cup folds down almost flat so no storage issues if space is a concern. The folding cup simply needs water added, sufficient so your cup floats and then pop it in the microwave. I put it in for 3 mins at 80% power using 850w microwave. Once pinged I left for a few minutes to cool and had a sterilised cup! A fantastic idea which works very well. Shipping from Feminine Wear was super fast as usual.Reviewer: Sarah-Jayne Edwards from United Kingdom
This sterilizing cup is excellent to use. Very quick, easy and effective. It is space saving as it folds down and I use it unfolded in my bathroom cabinet to store my two clean menstrual cups. When you put it in the microwave the lid does not seem to seal completely but I think this is to let the steam escape as the water boils in the cup so it does not explode! I suggest being very careful when heating and taking the cup out of the microwave. It will be extremely hot, enough to scold so it is a good idea to leave it for a while to cool first. I highly recommend this sterilizing cup.
