My Diva cup came in the mail today.   My first thought when I took it out of the package was that it was bigger than I thought it would be... but then I saw how easily it folded.  Hopefully I'll get it in alright.   


Just tried putting it in while in the shower.... LOTS of pain!!  On my best try I got it in about half way, but it just would't go any further.  I tried different angles, but no dice.  I'm going to go get some lube tommorow.  Any other advice?


I have a question about soaps to clean it.  I don't have any unscented soap in my house (and the instructions say to wash it with unscented soap.)  I remember reading something about Diva cup or Lunette making a soap specifically for the cups, but I don't remember seeing a link.  Could anyone link me to that?

Also, does anyone have any ideas on how I could clean it in the mean time?  (I've already boiled it, but I don't want to have to boil it after every time I take it out!)
