Hi everyone, I've been using a Fleurcup for a few months now and never had any issues with smell, but have also never drunk a lot of alcohol with it in. Last night I had had a lot, around 600ml of vodka, and I slept with my cup in. I took it out in the morning, so it would have been in about 15hours or so. There was a rancid smell to it, which I thought might be related to the alcohol because the smell was similar to fermented wine, and it smelt quite alcoholic. I'm not asking for advice on how to get rid of the smell, I'm just wondering if any of you wonderful people have had a similar experience? Thanks for your time!

the 15 hours is much more likely the cause of the smell. I have had booze (mostly ciders but also rum) many times, and never noticed a smell. But I have definitely noticed a bad smell after 12 hours, and the smell is progressively worse for each hour after 12.

Yeah, I think it's the time more than the fun times you had last night (have some Gatorade and ibuprofen today!)
I wore my FemmyCycle to a wedding and was so ungodly hungover the next day that I ended up leaving it in for like 24 hours. There was definitely more of a smell to it than usual, but I'm also more sensitive to smell when hungover so...

The winey smell could indicate a yeast infection. If you have one you'd probably have noticed by now, but you can have low level ones that aren't that obvious if you're not trying to have sex or anything, so watch out for that.
