Boiling the cup

I have a DivaCup that I washed out with hot water and soap for my first cycle, but I haven't settled on a soap that I like to use. It would actually be more convenient for me to boil the cup once or twice a day and rinse it the rest of the time, since I don't have a soap I currently want to use, but I have a plastic electric kettle (dunno if that's the real term, but it boils water and is electric) in my room.

My concern is that my roommate and I currently use my kettle to make tea. Would there be any bad aftertaste in the kettle? Could it damage my cup? Or would this possibly work?
