Menstrual sterilization of your menstrual cup is an important and necessary step to maintain it properly. So Luneale has decided to offer you the best menstrual cup sterilizer available: practical, healthy and fast. And best of all, it’s free!
Monthly sterilization of your menstrual cup.
Once a month, you have to boil your menstrual cup.
To do this, you can place it in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes. It is understandable that some people don’t want to do this (fear of forgetting it on the fire, don’t want to cook their pasta afterwards, etc…).
Warning : pouring boiling water on your cup is not enough to clean it, it really needs to be immersed in water that continues to boil. Brewing it is not enough.
So since the pot is not suitable for everyone, some brands have found a vein: offer a menstrual cup sterilizer.
Sterilization kit for menstrual cup / sterilization boxes / menstrual cup sterilizer: what for?
These sterilization boxes for cups look perfect: you fill them with water, dip your cup into them and spend 5 minutes in the microwave.
But there’s a but. These sterilization kits are useless, even potentially harmful:
- or they’re made of plastic. And need I remind you that plastic in the microwave is not a good idea? Even “microwaveable”?
- or they’re made of silicone. Silicone is very stable in the microwave, so no health concerns. What’s the point, though? It’s a useless purchase, which also generates waste.
A free, healthy menstrual cup sterilizer!
The best material for the microwave is glass. And the best waste is the waste we don’t generate.
You must have a finished jam jar, a mustard glass or some kind of glass jar at home, don’t you? Save one, put your cup in it and fill it with water (don’t put the lid on!). Put it in the microwave for 5 minutes and wait for it to cool down.
This will be the best possible sterilization box. No need to buy anything: you upcycle! 🙂 🙂
