So what if I put my Diva cup in my own mug that I never drink out of, and then in a separate pan, boiled water, then poured that over the Diva cup in the mug, then let it sit? Would that be good enough? Because otherwise I'd have to put my diva cup into the family's pots and pans. Ick. Or maybe I could buy my own mug just for that purpose and put in the diva cup, and nuke that in the microwave for about three minutes. But until I get my own mug for that purpose, could I do the first thing I suggested? Thank you!
