Cleaning Divacup pouch

I just finished my third cycle, and I'm very very happy with my cup. But I've got a question about the pouch, and I haven't seen *anything* about that anywhere, so I thought I'd ask. Cleaning the cup is easy enough, but what about washing the pouch? For some reason mine has got a mildewey smell--the kind of smell things get when they air dry but don't actually *dry*--and I definitely don't want to put my cup in there till that smell is gone. Can I just put it in the laundry in a lingerie bag? I make my own laundry detergent, but I still think the stuff in it (washing soda, borax, fels naptha soap) wouldn't be good getting on the cup, and therefore inside of me! Or is that not a big deal? I do wash my cup before each cycle, so it'd be pretty clean either way. I just know I don't want any mildew on my pouch or on my cup!
