Boiled too long...

OH NO!

So I just finished up my first period with a mooncup, which I endlessly adore!

I go about a post-period boiling in water witha capful of vinegar.  I drop it in, and remember to check on it 10 minutes later, telling myself that I need to let it go for 20 more minutes (I recall reading various places to allow for approx 30 min for boiling).

an hour later a funny smell reaches me...
eep, forgotten about it...
I'm really spacey like that...I have a horrible short term memory...horrible.

the bottom of the pot was all black...
I ran some water in it and the side of the cup that was touching the bottom was all white and black...scalded and semi-melted.

Can my mooncup recover from this or am I screwed into buying -another- one.  Cause I am pretty sure this isn't covered under the warrenty
