How long to boil??

Ok Ladies, I LOVE! my Diva and i've had my cup for two years, but only started really using it about 8 or so months ago.   I wanted to clean it and just wondering how long to boil it for. 

I'm, seeing 1 min, 5 min, 10 min 15 min eek! Just trying to get a gereral idea, Also do you add any thing to the water?? 90% of soaps/detergents make me itchy, so I would be lookng for somthing natural. (Before you ask hyrdogen Peroxide makes me REALLY itchy so i'm hesitatant to use it)

Thanks ladies! :)!
