Hah! So much for prudence...

A ways back, I asked for advice on my selection of a backup cup. :D I'm happy to say that I've demonstrated my usual self restraint, and bought myself two other cups.

I used the coupon _relax_replase thoughtfully provided to acquire a smaller Diva, and also splurged and bought an Orange Cup, by Lady Cup.

I realized, when I really thought of it, that while I have a really good relationship with my Keeper, that it's capacity is just way too small for me. I bleed like a proverbial stuck pig, my cycle generally lasting about 3 days (and sometimes less). My small Keeper doesn't leak, but only if I empty it like crazy. So, I went for a larger Orange Cup, and the small size Diva, which I only had to empty every 4-5 hours on the first day, which is acceptable enough given how comfortable I remember finding it. They're of a similar size, to boot.

I decided to spend the four extra dollars and get the 'luxury' Orange Cup package off ebay. I wanted to see what the hullaballo was, about the Milton sterilizing tabs. I'm in the USA, so it's totally foreign to me. I was wondering, does anyone know if these Milton tabs are okay to use with latex rubber?

The luxury package only comes with two tablets, which I understand can be broken up into smaller pieces and used in smaller quantities, but I sort of envisioned chucking all three cups together into a Milton solution, one day, and wanted to be sure I didn't harm my Keeper in the process.

*edit: Or, if anyone knows where I can find a list of materials that these Milton disinfectant tabs can be used with, I'd appreciate it.

I'm actually looking forward to trying out the slightly revised Diva, and the brand new Lady/Orange Cup. Who'da thunk?
