Special cleaning after swimming?

Hi everyone,

I'm using my LadyCup for the first time this week and went swimming today. Yesterday I had some leakage problems, but not today, not even with the swimming.
Anyway, my question is, does anyone clean their cups in a different way after being in the pool? Pool water is kinda gross and the chlorine can't be that good for the vagina. I know i used to try and take tampons out as soon as possible after being in the pool to not allow that water to just sit inside me for extended periods of time. The tampons always came out soaked in pool water. So, with the cup, should I boil, use soap, or would a good old rinse be enough?
