Cup use after a year break!

Hey everyone! Been away nearly a year due to pregnancy and now that my little guy is nearly 3 months I want to be ready for needing my cup again! I have two questions:

1. I'm going to wash and boil my cup to make sure it's clean after sitting in it's pouch for a year, anything specific other than that you'd recommend to make sure it's properly clean?

2. It's pretty discolored (I guess it was a lot less obvious when I was seeing it regularly!) so I want to sun it. I have no window sill but could put it out on the patio. If I put a completely clear glass over the cup will the sun's magic still work?
Thanks in advance 😊
