It’s bound to happen.
You could be dining at your favourite restaurant, enjoying on the beach or work late. Sooner rather than later, you’ll have to change your cup… in a public toilet *gasp*.
Questionable hygiene, small space and not-so-clean toilets are common culprits of concern – am I right? But now that you know how to use a menstrual cup, it’s time to take the next step on your less-waste journey, step up your game and bravely change your LaliCup in a public toilet.
In this post, I’m going to share with you our best ways to clean a menstrual cup in public toilets and show you that changing your cup on the go isn’t as scary as it seems.
How to do it:
I know you’re worried about not being able to change the cup in the safety of your own bathroom and, in some cases, without a sink nearby.
But the easiest and safest way to clean your menstrual cup on the go is to always have a small bottle of water with you during your period.
1. When you are in a public restroom, place an open bottle of water on the floor. Remove your menstrual cup with one hand and emptiy its contents into the toilet. Take the bottle with your other hand and clean the cup with water over the toilet.
2. Wash off any blood on your fingers with the remaining water left in the bottle.
3. Put the cup back in and voila, you are good to go!
|If you don’t have a water bottle with you, it’s enough to wipe the cup with soft intimate wipes, or in extreme cases with toilet paper.|
P.S. before and after changing the cup, wash your hands in the sink.
You can find a demonstrating video of what we just talked about below. Just click on it and you will find out how our boss Mateja goes about cleaning LaliCup in the public toilet:
| In order to avoid all the hassle of washing the cup, a lot of menstrual cup users decide to carry an additional LaliCup with them, change it and then simply wash both cups when they get home.|
