What do you use to dry your Diva Cup?

LikeSunshineDust LikeSunshineDust
I clean my Diva Cup in the morning and at night before bed. I obviously don't want to put it back in wet, but anything I dry it with (toilet paper, kleenex, towel) leaves lint. Toilet paper leaves the least (I don't use the super fluffy, soft kind), so that's what I use. But does anyone who uses a Diva Cup, or other menstrual cup, have a better suggestion? Thanks!

I'm not sure why you don't want to put it back in while it's wet. I usually shake off excess water and then slide it in. If I do want to dry it, I just set it out on its little bag to dry.

I guess I just don't like the idea of water sitting in my vagina all day. Vaginas are acidic to keep bacteria and yeast at bay, and water's more neutral. Figured better safe than sorry.

Ah, I see. I wouldn't worry about that. The amount of water that would remain stuck to the Diva Cup is minimal (provided you do actually dump out what's inside, heh), and the walls of the vagina are mucous membranes, meaning they can absorb water if needed to balance out what's going on in there. While you're right that the vag is acidic, a few drops of water here or there isn't going to change the pH to allow for bacterial/yeast growth. I'm personally much more concerned with having fuzz/lint/tissue bits hanging out inside me all day.

Yeah, same thing here, I just shake excess water and put it in. I have had mine for about 4 years and I have never had an issue with a few drops of water.

And I agree with Rocking, I prefer water to the piece of tissue left on it.

I just hang it to dry in its little drawstring bag with a soap nut inside it.

You can use a small corner of a dinner napkin or paper towel or anything absorbent to lightly dab the few leftover drops of water - it'll absorb the droplets without leaving any lint on the cup.

I also shake off excess water and then put it back in a little wet-- I figure it's going to get wet in there anyway! When I'm done menstruating, I wash it and let it air dry before storing it in the bathroom cabinet.

I'm super late on this post but I just wanted to say you don't need to worry about the excess water, many people including myself use a little warm water for lubrication with our cups.

Add me to the list - I shake off (and dump out) the excess water and leave it damp. I like a little warm water on the outside for lubrication.
