When at work ( and I work at a Taco Bell ), I go to the bathroom with a small cup, wash my hands and fill the cup with warm/hot water from tap and take a paper towel with me. I empty my cup ( DivaCup size 1 ), rinse with water on the outside and inside getting what I can off. Then wet the corner of the paper towel and wipe out the inside and rinse again. I then just do a quick dry with the dry part of the paper towel and re-instert. I sometimes, if I feel the need to, pour water over my lady parts and clean myself up a bit. It helps me feel fully clean. Then I just walk out throw away the cup, rewash my hands with hot as I can stand water and sanitize when I get back to where it is available. I hope this helps anyone else. I do this anywhere I can get a small cup or I just wet one paper towel and take a dry one with me as well. =)

How do I change the background for the link? Like on the link you showed me, I am even having a difficult time reading it. Please let me know where to change that.

Re: HOW?!
that's just a picture, that's what it looks like on my friends page. i loooove purple too and i liked the look of it, but yeah just remember that not everyone is going to be reading it here in the comm. and i wouldn't want my whole friends page to look like that, white is much easier to read on a purple background. also no matter what design you choose, if everyone posts in their favourite colour some posts will be unreadable.

also on lj, just because you're capable of doing it doesn't mean you're allowed to. most comms don't allow you to delete or screen the responses you get, because there's no setting to prevent non-mods from doing it when they post to a community.

and i believe as a plus member you can add style=mine to the link and it will display it in the style of your journal. http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/3168036.html?style=mine

to keep it on topic.. do you have a purple cup? :D

Mod note
Hello :) Could you please return your font to default colours? As [Unknown LJ tag] demonstrated, it can make it unreadable on some friends pages (as many people read the community on their friends pages rather than by looking at the main page).

The same applies to yesterday's post.

Re: Mod note
I changed the color a bit darker. I would Like to stay purple, So I will make it a darker one. Sorry for the difficulty reading. =)

Re: Mod note
Whatever colour you use, it will end up looking unreadable on some people's friends pages, as people can use any background colour they like. Please do change it to the default.

Re: Mod note
so my color needs to change because someone else has a background color that is not usable with my word color choice? Or is my background color purple? If so, I will change that, but want to keep my color purple. I am sorry for any inconvenience. But that is the other persons problem. Pick a color on which most text will show. I have the option for purple, so I picked to use it. I changed ( or tried to ) my color. I don't particularly like the default. Sorry if that bothers you, but I am keeping it a darker purple to be easier for others, because it is close to black.

Hi glories_asters. I'm sorry, but that's absolutely not an acceptable response. People select their styles for all sorts of reasons, including readability and accessibility. What you do on your journal is your business, but if you want to participate in our community you do need to comply with the rules of the community. If you don't change the text to default, we will have to delete the post. Thanks for understanding.

Re: Mod warning
I did not realize there was a rule on color. I attempted to change it back. sorry for mis-understanding

Re: Mod warning
it didn't work :( click edit post, select all your text, choose the colour "default" (not black) and undo italics. you can also view source and erase all < tags >.

Re: Mod warning
btw, two awesome tools for customization:
http://userstyles.org/ install an add-on and apply your own styles to pages. premade styles especially for social networks like facebook and tumblr. might not interact well with lj custom themes. i used this one back when this comm had a more pink design, though.
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/color-toggle/ colour toggle, much more simple. i use it when i don't like the design of a specific site and/or the colour combination is not contrastive enough. you just click a button and all colours change immediately.
