Disinfection cup for menstrual cups
Disinfecting your menstrual cup has never been this easy. Simply place your Me Luna or any other menstrual cup into the disinfection cup and fill with water until your menstrual cup floats.Then place the disinfection cup into your microwave and set it on medium power for 3-5 min. Times might vary depending on your microwave. For the disinfection to be effective the water has to be boiling. Please don’t seal the lid of the disinfection cup completely otherwise the steam produced by the boiling water cannot escape.
The disinfection cup is now very hot because of the heating process. Please take appropriate safety measures (pot cloth, oven mittens) for your hands and be very careful when removing the disinfection cup from the microwave. You might as well let the cup and it’s contents cool down inside the microwave to be on the safe side.
Each foldable disinfection cup is made from food safe, microwavable silicone and is also perfect for storing your menstrual cup. The foldable design also makes it easy to take with you when travelling.

The disinfection cup was specially developed for use in the microwave. The metal rim is made of uncoated pure stainless steel.
It is often pointed out that metal should not be allowed in a microwave oven. That’s not quite true. The entire interior of a microwave is indeed made of metal. However, you should never put thin metallic foils or cutlery and dishes with metallic decorations in the microwave, as they can melt! Even the microwave oven can be damaged in the worst case.
But you should always be careful with your pots, pans and other containers, because you can not be sure how solid the material is or which other metals have been used. Aluminum is absolutely taboo!
