cleaning cup holes

Hi everyone,

I've been loving my Diva cup for almost 3 years now (yay!) but I've recently started to question the cleanliness of the holes. I feel pretty confident that rinsing the cup in hot water and boiling it after every cycle keeps it clean, but the holes just look .... gross. I'm wondering, does anyone have any concerns about how hygienic the holes are? The fact that they're discolored and have some "build up", for lack of a better term, makes me wonder if this could potentially lead to BV or a YI, or any other sort of problem. I mean, I wouldn't brush my teeth with a tooth brush that had gunk in it.....

Thoughts? Cleaning recommendations? (squirting water out of the holes doesn't seem to flush them completely)
