Did a dry run today and learned a few things. First I am *so* glad I went with the small despite Lunette's website sizing guide suggesting I needed a large. Anything longer than the model 1 lunette would be way too long for me. I also learned I will need to trim the stem, which doesn't surprise me considering I typically cut off most of the string from tampons because they bother me. Lastly, I was surprised at how strong the suction was! It was slightly difficult to remove due to the suction, and pinching the base alone did not do the trick. I found that bearing down and twisting the cup as I pulled on the base seemed to work. Is that the right way to do it? Maybe there's a better trick?
The other thing I'm wondering is what soap people use to wash their cups with. I have plenty of Johnson's baby wash on hand but I read in a previous post someone had issues using baby wash. Does anyone use inexpensive soap/wash available at grocery stores or pharmacies (like CVS)? It's hard to find gentle, perfume free soap in stores these days. Baby wash is the most gentle product I can think of, but upon reading the label it does have some perfume in it.
