Diva Wash Alternative?

Is there anything out there that is less expensive than Diva Wash? Does unscented Dr. B's work just as well?

Re: Diva Wash Alternative?

the directions on the Diva cup say to wash with any mild soap. I use regular bar soap once a day during my cycle and I boil it after each cycle.

I just rinse it well each time I dump it and soak it in vinegar water after each cycle.

I have heard Dr. Bonner's is great for menstrual cups but can not personally attest to that. I just received my first cup about a week ago. My DH who is generally very tolerant of girl things informed me that I was not to use our cooking pans to boil a menstrual cup and that it would be grounds for a divorce! I haven't decided if I just want to use rubbing alcohol as suggested in the packaging or buy a cheap pan for it!
