So my cycle arrived 3 days ago and I've been miserable. I've had a very heavy flow and I've been kicking myself for not order a menstrual cup sooner. I'll definitely be getting one in time for next month. So I was at the grocery store begrudgingly buying tampons when I noticed that Intead's were available there as well. I thought you had to order them online or something. So I picked up a box of them. Like I said, I'm going to order a silicone cup soon, but for now I think this is better than tampons. I am interested in re-using them for environmental and financial reasons. I know that some of you have re-used Insteads and I'd like to know how you have cleaned them. Just hot water? Boiling will break down the plastic right? Any soap or anything? Thanks!
