Candidiasis - how do I clean my cup?

Hi everyone!
I've just found out I have candida overgrowth. I probably have had it for some time, just haven't realised what it was. When trying to get rid of it, how should I clean my cup after every cycle, to prevent it from perhaps re-infecting me again? Until now, I have always washed it inbetween changes with water, and then at the end washed it with soap and boiled it for 5-10 min. When I started again, I washed it with soap and water before inserting it. I heard that when it comes to fungus, boiling it does not kill it, so should I use vinegar or something?

Thank you for your help in advance!
Have a great day!!
