Scrubbing cup with toothbrush?

Quick question about cleaning for those of you who scrub with hot water and a toothbrush - do you just use any old discarded toothbrush, or buy a new one to scrub the cup with?
Also, should I use a baby toothbrush, or super-soft? I use soft-bristled toothbrushes for my teeth, would those be okay after I'm done with them and have soaked/washed them thoroughly in disinfectant?

I'm not uber-hygienic about my cup, unlike a lot of people. I feel that water, a good rubbing and a monthly soak in TTO or vinegar will clean it just fine. But sometimes I need to scrub, especially the Mooncup's lettering on the inside. I hope it doesn't hurt the silicone.
