How do I use the disinfection cup?
Disinfection in a microwave
Please place your Me Luna® with the stem facing the bottom into the disinfection cup and fill it up with water. The Me Luna® has to start swimming. Then put the provided lid on the cup. The correct wattage settings depend on your microwave model. The water must be boiling for the disinfection to be effective. If in doubt, please consider your microwave manual. Most customers use medium power level / wattage for 3 – 5 minutes.
The cup’s lid must not be completely sealed: 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.
Disinfection with Milton tablets:
Fill your Me Luna® cleaning cup with 75mL of cold water, then dissolve 1/2 Milton tablet. After the tablet is completely dissolved, carefully place your Me Luna® menstrual cup with the stem facing the bottom in the cleaning cup and completely submerge it. Be careful not to spill the disinfection fluid. For Me Luna® menstrual cups in size L and XL the fluid may not be sufficient. Please add water until the cup is fully submerged.
Let sit for 15 minutes, then poor the disinfection fluid into the drain. The disinfection process is completed after 15 minutes, we do not recommend to extend the disinfection time! Too long disinfection times cause discoloration of the cleaning cup and the Me Luna® menstrual cup. We recommend using a timer (e.g. an egg timer) to observe the desinfection time.
TIP: If you want to transport the cleaning cup and the Me Luna® together, simply insert both into the Me Luna® storage bag. This keeps the lid on the cleaning cup and the Me Luna®is stored properly, as there can take place an exchange of air by only loosely fitting lid.
