Do you guys ever fine your cups stained or covered in soap residue even after rinsing? My question is how do you get rid of it? I've heard of people using neutrogena oil free acne wash to wash the cup too remove oil only once or twice or dish soap but those sound harsh especially with the staylic acid.

Well, Dawn is used to wash oil covered animals, so as long as you rinse it well, I don't see any harm to your cup.

I'm not a guy, and I don't ever get soap residue on my cup, but if your cup is made from silicone there is not a whole lot that can harm it, as chemicals go. I've bleached my cup in actual bleach and it looks exactly the same as before.
To get my cup looking like new, I use denture cleaning tablets.

What does soap residue look like?

Many people use "guys" to refer to people. It's gender neutral to me. It seems like the poster was just trying to follow this boards PC rules.

Yes, I know, but as far as I know that's mostly the way people in the US use the word, and not all of us live there.
For non-native speakers of English, it often doesn't sound genderneutral. To me, it doesn't.

Anyway, it wasn't meant in a harsh or scolding way. I'm just... not a guy.

I would try and get a soap that's not so moisturizing, there shouldn't be a residue. Perhaps rubbing it down with vinegar would help ?

Give it a soak in some hydrogen peroxide (the kind you get to clean wounds). Make sure the soap you are using does not have any moisturizers added. Plain soap, esp. unscented, would be best, to avoid leaving any residue behind. The classic blue Dawn dishwashing soap is my favorite for washing silicone objects with no residue.

I say to just boil it in a pot of water on your stove. I do it before and after my cycle and if I have dropped it or just feel it needs that extra bit of cleaning. If it looks stained that might help.
