Greasy cup?

I've had my Diva Cup for about a year. I've been washing it with warm water and liquid soap. Aside from occasionally using a little bit of rubbing alcohol, I haven't done anything else, and I don't use lube with it.

Lately, I've felt like the cup has a slightly greasy/oily feel. It's not something that rubs off on my fingers or anything, but it does seem to go away after washing (only to have it return).

It's hard to tell if I'm just imagining it. Would boiling the cup help, do you think? I'm a little concerned that the silicone is degrading or something.

Thanks!
