I'm a bit of a clean-freak and would scrub my cup most evenings with a disinfecting handwash and toothbrush. Anyhow, after reading some posts on over-washing of the cup in soap solutions and how chemical residues might upset the delicate pH balance of the vag, I have tried this cycle with just washing it in hot water...and guess what?! I have just finished my cycle with NO soreness/irritation/thrush or anything!!! YAY!!!
So for anyone with anything like I had... I suggest to stop over-washing your cup!! :p
Thanks again LJ!
