So, I ordered my lunette selene a few weeks ago, got it a couple weeks ago, did some dry runs, all worked fine.  I started my period yesterday, and have been using it since with minor leakage problems every couple hours & thats getting better! So all is well, but I've noticed it already has a smell, & I'm a little shocked it's developed a smell so quickly since I'm only on day two of my period. Any one else have this issue?  I've washed it twice now, & I rinse it every time i take it out. I don't want to use soap too much, so I don't screw with my pH balance.  Any advice?  Thanks!

I use a feminine wash everytime I'm in the shower and feel like giving my cup a good clean. Anything you use, just make sure to rinse it off your hands and the cup really well. You could also soak your cup in plain white vinegar or cider vinegar, or just wipe it down : your ph won't mind, and any smell should disapear.

I have more than one cup (this happened by accident) but if I notice that one of my cups develop a smell ( and sometimes this happens during my period) I soak it in hydrogenperoxide over night, rise it out well and pop it back in the next AM. This gets rid of all smells and also staining if there is any :) and it can not hurt you. You dont have to let it overnight - an hour or 2 is more than enough :)
I also do this at the end of my period as well
