I have a fantastic opportunity to take an indefinite trip traveling through Central and South America in just a few weeks. I'm really excited about it! I also really love my large Fleurcup and plan to take it with me. What I'm concerned about, however, is changing and rinsing it (and keeping my hands clean while doing so) in areas where the water is not safe to drink (which will likely be most places I am staying). It seems to me that this would pose a threat of infection, would it not? I'm guessing I will have to utilize my bottled drinking water for cleaning my cup, but I'd prefer to reserve that for drinking if possible, because I just know I'll waste a ton of it before I get a system down. Does anyone have any tips or tricks they could share with me for cup use in third-world countries?

Could you bring small packs of baby wipes to use to clean it?

That's not a bad idea. Though I would want to make sure to find ones that are totally biodegradable and free of chemicals. My other hesitance is that I wouldn't want to bring a ton because I'll be living out of a backpack, and I have a feeling I won't be able to replenish them once I run out on the road. And ideally, I'd like not to produce that much waste (which is a big reason I switched to cups in the first place)... I will look into that though! Thanks. :)
