Mooncup (as seen on a Veggie Nugget thread near you...)

We're all in this together, remember, so while the world is collapsing around our ears it might be nice to have a place to talk about new-found frugalities and old-fashioned eco-living. And mooncups.

Oh fucking shitting bollocky wank balls. Just had a slippage incident on removal and dropped my mooncup down the bastard toilet. :scream

Sorry about the language, but I kind of need my mooncup right now. And of course, because I don't ever bother sterilising it, I don't have any steriliser in the house... :mona

Arse cakes.

I dropped mine in a toilet many years ago while drunk and visiting a friend. I washed it with soap in the sink and popped it back in, no thought to the need to sterilize it! :scream Thank goodness I didn't get any kind of infection or anything.

Soak in white vinegar and bicarb, scrub, then sterilise?

ETA, I haven't tried this and I'm not a chemist, so it may blow up or something... just seems like something that might work.

Tintin, I did exactly the same with mine.but it had held it's integrity, so i just washed and it's still going strong. It's a bit discoloured, but other than that, fine
