Just pick it up/out and wash it really well, then go on with your life. Cups are non-absorbent. You just need to get the YUCK off the surface. :o)

Yeah I just boiled it and am letting it dry now. It still just grossed me out to no end and reminded me that I need to clean the toilet. LOL

Knowing me, my real answer is "not yet".

Yes, and our apartment was insanely humid. We'd end up bleaching the toilet once a week, but the mold would still come back way too quickly in the summer. When I dropped mine in the toilet, it happened to be near the end of a cleaning cycle.

Boiled it. Alcohol-ed it. TTO-ed it. And then I started cleaning the toilet even more often when it was hot.

Ugh. Hated that bathroom.

I think another time I dropped mine in the work toilet (or maybe it was another public toilet). Luckily I had my back up cup on me, but... Yea. That wasn't pleasant.

Yes. But luckily I was at home and I just cleaned the toilet. I gave it a good scrub with anti-bac soap and hot water.

Yup. Twice. Once in a hotel toilet, which was the part that felt grosser than dropping it in my own. the only plus was that they had hotter water to wash it off with than I do at my own house.

I've only dropped it into a public toilet once, and I wrapped it in toilet paper and inserted a tampon instead and heavily sterilized it when I got home.

I also had it slip out of my hands and bounce behind the toilet once at home. Equally gross.

Missed dropping it on the bathroom floor/in the litter box by *thismuch*. Slopped blood all the hell over the floor, but I'd rather clean up the blood than drop my Diva in the cat box. :(

dropped in toilet AND flushed it! I don't know quite how that happened now as it was several years ago, but I was super upset and ordered a new one right away!

I haven't dropped it in the toilet, but I have dropped it in the sink and the floor at home.

I dropped it in the toilet while trying to learn how to put it in a year or so ago... I just fished it out and ran steaming hot water over it and used an antibacterial soap.

I'm using the same cup right now! Nbd... as long as there's no shit or anything in the toilet at the time it should be perfectly sanitary since silicone doesn't absorb fluids.

Edit: Did it again tonight o.0 it just slipped when I removed it... it was a bit slippery since it leaked from me coughing like CRAZY due to this damn flu.
