This is one of the top reasons I only buy silicone. Even my unpigmented rabbit (the Petite Thumper) doesn't take a stain. Thank goodness.

I'm very curious about this! Obviously silicone can be stained by blood, all I have to do is look at my divacup to figure that out. But wearing a silicone menstrual cup for 120 consecutive hours each month over the course of a year has quite a different effect than using a silicone dildo for an hour or less while menstruating. Still, it's not something I want to try. I don't want to risk staining an expensive toy.

Have you bleached your Diva Cup? Mine comes clean.

We have silicone toys that are several years old. They still look as good as new.

Blood, though a protein stain by technicality, will not stain silicone toys. Especially medical grade. My absolutely clear Diva Cup stained and boiling didn't remove it but rubbing alcohol did.

I have purchased a few that say specifically in the instructions not to use when on your period - I haven't, but I have no idea if they'd stain or not.

In order for any material to stain, it has to have something for the stainee to adhear too. As we all know, there is nothing for nasties to attach to, why would blood be any different.

Not if it's pure silicone, but it may if it's a mix.

As someone who knows silicone on a professional level if its 100% it can NOT be stained by blood period.

I think it's the Shots Media toys - it's been a while since I've seen the warning, so I'll have to go take a look and see

Some silicone has air bubbles in it which might be able to hold onto dried blood, but that should come out with boiling if it happens. And that's not staining technically.

You can't stain something that is not porous.

I've only boiled it, never used bleach. It hadn't occurred to me to bleach it because I don't mind stains in that situation. I'll definitely give it a try, though! Do you bleach after every cycle or every few months?

I've never had a silicone toy stain. As others have said, my clear DivaCup has gotten a bit tinged, but that's easily removed if you desire to do so.

I do always try to wash my toys more quickly when I'm spotting or on my period - but I'm not sure why. LOL

Don't you just love having a place where you can ask that question, knowing no one will look at you weird?

It is not supposed to stain silicone and I have never had it happen, but I have heard others say it happened. If it stains, the toy is probably not 100% silicone, company lied. Happens ALL the time!

I'm so glad I managed to find myself in this poll. I just bought the diva cup, so yay for explaining that it can be bleached. Must do more research. Oh...and I've never had blood stain a toy before.

I stick to glass and metal toys on my period. Nice to know it won't stain.
