So I'm currently on a three month trip in Mexico, and I'm hoping my cup will make the trip a lot easier. I decided to clean it with bottled water, based on what I've read here, but I'm having problems getting stuff out of the small holes. I tried suctioning the cup (I have a diva cup size 1) to my hadn like someone suggested, but couldn't really do it right. And so, the cleaning process has been a little difficult so far, and I'm feeling very self conscious about it, because none of the other girls here use a cup. I have a really light period, so I was wondering if there would be any problem with me waiting more than 12 hours to change my cup. I left it in for 12 hours yesterday, and it was not even half full. Is there any reason I can't leave it in longer so I don't have to clean it as much, or do people have other suggestions as to how to clean it?
