I have a Yuuki cup and the holes are really small, can anyone tell me how they clean their cups that have very small holes, I tried with water and pressure, but one hole is still not as clean as it should be.

I have a thumb tack (safety pin would also work) that I reserve just for cleaning holes.

When water and pressure don't work I use a mild soap (pH 3,5 I think). This always cleaned the holes perfectly. But I have a LadyCup, I think its holes are bigger anyway.

Oh goodie! I found the post I was looking for!
What a great idea!

That's what I use! Works like a charm!!!

I use something very similar (ignore the Norwegian text ;)) and it works like a charm! The holes in my cups were discolored, but not clogged in any way, so I didn't really mind. I had some of these, and they certainly don't work for my teeth (they're too large), so I remembered that post and tried to clean the holes with them. It worked like magic :)

i used to use a toothpick on my divacup b/c the holes were so small. when that still didn't work, soaking in hydrogen peroxide worked every time.

You may already be doing this but you might get more water pressure with a spray bottle or by filling your cup and sealing it with your palm, forcing water OUT the holes??

Quite unrelated to your problem but I was wondering, with those small holes, does this cup have killer a lot of suction?

Could you maybe do a review on the Yuuki? Ive yet to come across a review on this cup- I really dont hear much about it...

OH! and what made you choose this cup over the others?

There's a review on the menstrual cups wordpress site -

I was intrigued by how squishy she said it was (she also touched on it in her cup ratings page), so I've bought one on the FeminineWear website. (I know you weren't referring to me, but I just thought I'd let you guys know) I'll definitely be posting a bunch of pictures and my review once I try it out :)

You can also check the yukki tags, as someone else also wrote her review on the yukki -

I have a Diva. To clean the holes, I don't use anything except water.

1. I tip the cup sideways
2. squeeze the cup on either side of the hole (so the hole is sticking up)
3. place the hole under running water

It rinses clean for me every time
