This Sterilizer is fantastic for cleaning your Ruby Cup (or other brand menstrual cup) between your periods. It's foldable and made of 100% food grade silicone, so it's great for travelling and safe to use over and over again.
An easy way to sterilize your menstrual cup before or after your cycle, just place your cup into the sterilizer and fill to the rim with water. Make sure your cup is completely covered with water. Don't close the sterilizer lid completely, but rather let it fall loosely shut. Put the sterilizer in the oven or microwave:
- Microwave: boil for 2-3 minutes at 600-1000 Watts
- Oven: boil at 200° Celsius for 10 minutes
After it is boiled be careful not to burn yourself – the sterilizer will be very hot. Once the water has cooled down, you can remove your menstrual cup from the sterilizer.
