SO, kind of in the same situation as this thread. I just got a Tantus Cush (OMG gorgeous) but circumstances necessitated me to stash it in my giant purse for a while, where it (devastatingly but unsurprisingly) got a small cut. Ugh! I haven't even used it yet and I am so, so sad. I boiled it to make sure it was clean but you can still see the little slit, it's maybe a quarter of a cm long. Does anyone have a magic way to fix this? Do I need to take extra care to clean it? I know silicone is non-porous, but how do I know that I'm really getting that little cut clean and it's not trapping anything? I don't really want to have to boil it every time. Sigh. It's so tragic when brand new toys get damaged.
