Washing Divacup with Soapy Water

I am on my second month of the Divacup - LOVING it! -  and am concerned as to how I should be cleaning it daily. Looking through the memories didn't give me the information that I needed.  The instructions for the Divacup say to wash it with warm soapy water when you change it, but I am not sure what type of soap to use.  I generally have bath & body works antibacterial soap, and a variety of LUSH soaps availabe. We don't usually keep Dove or Ivory soap in the house. 

At the moment I am rinsing it with warm water every time I take it out. Is that enough, or should I find something else to rinse with every time?
