Boiling Water Disinfection

Boiling Water Disinfection

Menstrual cups should be disinfected at least once after your period.

Boiling water is so good because it is ECO-FRIENDLY and CHEMICAL-FREE.

 

Disinfect Me Luna® in a saucepan

  • Bring enough water to boil in a small saucepan.
  • Put your Me Luna® cup in the boiling water for 2-3 minutes.
  • We recommend using a timer to stop the disinfection on time.

Disinfect Me Luna® in the microwave

  • Place your Me Luna® in a microwave-safe container.
  • Set the microwave to 500-800 watts for approx. 5 minutes, or 850-1200 watts for approx. 3 minutes (depending on the device).

Important: The water should boil, otherwise you do not have sufficient disinfection.

Our tip for microwave disinfection: Use the Travel Cleaning Cup or our Me Luna® Cleaning Cup!

But what's the use of adding SALT, VINEGAR or LEMON JUICE to the cooking water?

We tried it!

Our attempt: We filled four glasses with water. In one we also added some SALT. In the second a little LEMON JUICE and in the third some VINEGAR.
After a 3-minute microwave cooking session, the glass of pure water had a whitish coating that was difficult to remove.

Why is that so?

Minerals are dissolved in tap water. These minerals settle on pans and of course on the Me Luna® cup after only one cooking process.
The glasses, which were used with the addition of VINEGAR or LEMON JUICE, had no deposits at all. If you want to prevent your cooking vessels and the Me Luna® cup from becoming unsightly, add a little bit of LEMON JUICE or VINEGAR. When using water with SALT, a white coating was also visible on the glass. It was easy to remove with water. Above all, SALT is a proven home remedy for a wide variety of stains. You can use it to get a better cleaning effect to prevent discoloration.
