This lidded and closable cup is suitable for storage or sterilisation of MeLuna or other menstrual cups. It is made from food safe PP (polypropylene) and well suited for use in the microwave. The flap lid is perforated for the steam to escape to prevent overpressure. The lid is also hinged onto the cup so cant be lost and it closes with a secure clicking mechanism.
Capacity is 200 ml (10.14 oz) with a scale inside. The diameter is 85mm (3.5 inches)and the height is also 85mm (3.5 inches)
Please put your MeLuna into the sterilisation cup and add about 200 ml water. Your MeLuna is supposed to be immersed in the water.
The correct wattage depends on your microwave model. Please refer to your instruction manual for how to bring water to the boil and boil MeLuna for 2-3 minutes.
You may close the lid on your sterilisation cup but it is not absolutely necessary. The hole in the lid must NOT be covered if the cup is used with it's lid closed. Otherwise, the steam caused by the boiling water could not escape.
The sterilisation cup will be burning hot after usage. Please remember to put on oven mitts or use a pot cloth to protect your hands when removing the cup from your microwave. It is fine to leave your MeLuna and the water to cool down inside the microwave.
For a quick sterilisation, using already boiling water, immersing your MeLuna and waiting 5 minutes will be sufficient. Be sure, though, to rinse your MeLuna thoroughly under warm running water before using this method.
