Your Accalia Cup is not supplied in a sterile state and must be sterilised before use and at the end of each cycle.

To sterilise your Accalia Cup - Fill a pot with water so there is sufficient water to cover the menstrual cup, bring the water to the boil. Place your Accalia cup in the water for 3-5 minutes. Do not leave the pot unattended or allow the pot to boil dry. Air dry your Accalia Cup, preferably in the sun as this will offer UV sterilisation also.

During your cycle wash your cup under cold water each time you empty it. Do not use an oil-based soap on your Accalia Cup.

HINT: Using cold water for initial rinsing will help prevent staining and odours.
