Get rid of Chlorine smell from Milton tablets

I just recently finished my first cycle with a menstrual cup, the small soft meluna, and it went great. I had no leaks, and was able put it in and take it out mess free and really easily.

However, at the end of my cycle, I realised that my cup wasn't the nicest smelling, so I thought I'd sanitize it using Milton tablets as boiling isn't really an option right now.

I bought the Milton tablets from tesco, and it was only £1.25 for a box of 28, so that was great. I figured that I'd need 1/20th of the tablet for my 250ml container, so I split up the tablet and put about that amount in.

I left my cup to soak for a bit less than a day. However, when I took it out it smelled like chlorine, so I gave it a rinse under cold water and then let it dry.

It still smells of chlorine, and whilst the smell isn't that strong, and is infinitely better to what it smelled like before, I'd still like to get rid of it before my next cycle. If anyone's got any tips for that, I'd be really grateful.
