Alternative cleaning thingys

(Is it okay that I'm asking so many questions here?)

I was just wondering why tea tree oil seems to be the cleaner of choice... I've also read about using anti-bacterial adult toy cleaner, and there's a lady on Youtube who soaks her cup in surgical spirits whenever she's not using it.

Any thoughts?

Edited: Why does it say on the Divacup website that tea tree oil is among the cleaners that will ruin silicone? Look at the chart below
