I LOVE my Keeper...but I have a question!

So I got my period today. I put my Keeper in and it went well, but I used a tampon for class since I wasn't sure if I would have leaking issues with the cup yet or not. I put it in once I got back and it's been in since...no problems! I LOVE it so much! Thank you guys for being a part of this awesome place that helped me with the whole buying a cup process.

I have a question about cleaning though. I know a lot of people boil their cups, but I think I read somewhere that boiling isn't good for the natural gum rubber...is this true? What do you Keeper owners use to clean your cup? When I first got it I used a fragrance-free cleaning soap, but all I have around now are Soft Soap bottles and I don't want to use all those chemicals on my cup! I was thinking of getting a cleanser from the natural store, and then maybe using hydrogen peroxide or something to sterilize it. Is this a good idea? If not, what should I use?
