Travelling while using a clear lunette

Hi all,

Long time lurker, first time poster!

I'm going overseas next month and I'll likely get my period while I'm away. I haven't ordered my lunette yet - I'm just trying to see if I can get everything ready in time to get it before I leave. So yeah, I have a couple questions.

I live in Australia and several products recommended here are only available overseas or online (from what I've seen) and I'm not sure if I have enough time to order them before my trip. I'm not sure if I'll be able to use boiling water to sterilise my cup before and after my cycle so will I be able to get away with using the lunette wipes to sterilise it and clean it by rinsing it with water in between uses?

Also, I read a lot of people use rubbing alcohol to sterilise their cups. Would isopropyl rubbing alcohol work too? Namely Isocol Rubbing Alcohol? I haven't really been able to find much information on it and how safe it is to use on cups, but since I already have it I figured it was worth a shot! OH, and how long would it take to completely evaporate?

Lastly, what are some good glycerin and/or paraben free lubes that are available in store? I've been trying to find some but I think I may have to go with KY Jelly, although I've always been paranoid about getting yeast infections so I'd rather not risk it...

Sorry about all the questions! I just really want to be prepared before I dive in :D

Thanks and take care xx
