Cleaning Question

Hi everyone! I'm new here. I don't actually have a cup yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to get one the next time I get paid. (I'm leaning toward a Mooncup UK.) I have a question, though, that I haven't seen the answer to (I've found answers to most of my questions, though! I love this community!):

How does one go about cleaning her cup in the sink without bleeding all over her panties in the process?

I know this wouldn't always be a problem for me - sometimes my periods are very light, and I'd presumably empty/clean my cup in the shower once a day, and not bleed for the few minutes it would take me to clean my cup. (I'm also waiting to get my own apartment to avoid the whole dorm-bathroom scene, although it seems others manage it.) However, sometimes (like right now), I have the period from the Hot Place, where I bleed heavily and practically non-stop for 2-3 weeks. (I'm going on 2.5 weeks now, and little signs of letting up. I hate spending money on tampons!) I don't want to bleed all over myself while I'm trying to wash my cup out, so I'm wondering how others handle this. Ideas?
