I have a bottle of Diva Wash that I've been using since I bought my first cup. It's almost empty now and it seems silly to buy another bottle, since it's kind of expensive and I don't even actually use a diva. :p I'm wondering, does anyone have any recommendations for a good soap similar to the diva wash I can use? I've heard about milton tablets and sterilizing by boiling, but I've never heard the names of any good brands for a soap.

Whatever soap you already have handy. Just be sure to wash all the residue off you cup and hands because some people are sensitive to some of the ingredients.

My rule of thumb is "as clean as cutlery." How clean does a spoon have to be before you stick it into your mouth? How clean do your hands have to be before you'll handle your food with them?

Yeah, it really doesn't matter so much. I don't recommend moisturizing body bars or shower gels because they do leave a film, but really any you've got on hand. If you really want something special for it, a liquid castile like Dr. Bronner's should do you fine. (Just maybe not the peppermint.)

I guess I'm paranoid because it seems like every soap out there is scented or has something special in it or whatever. I think Dr. Bronner's should be perfect though. Thanks!

I use Dr. Bronner's tea tree soap. It lasts FOREVER. Seriously, I've had the bottle I have for about 5 years with about an inch gone (but I only use it for my cup). :)

I use regular bath soap (usually Lever 2000) and just rinse well. I figure if it's good enough for other things you might put in there...

It's been 5 years now and no problems from this.

You don't need special cup soap. I even use the dispenser foam soap at work and rinse very thoroughly. At home I use my regular bar soap - always unscented. Once again, rinsing is key.

FWIW aleppo soap may damage cups due to its high fat content - Fleurcup specifically doesn't recommend that particular soap.
