I remember finding my puppy in the bathroom surrounded by mysterious little blue bits. It took me awhile to figure out she had found my sapphire blue MeLuna menstrual cup and chewed it up. Why she continued until she had pea size pieces I will never know.
I also found out first hand that if you heat a TPE menstrual cup WITHOUT water long enough, it will completely disappear. No goey mess like other materials...nope: vanished into thin air with no noticable remnants.
Surely I can't be the only one I thought!
And so I posted the question on our Facebook account: What mishaps have you had with reusable cloth pads? What happened to your beloved menstrual cup that made it unusable?
We received so many amazing, hilarious, sad, funny, puzzling stories that we thought it would be sad to have them all lost in Facebook land.
To create a lasting link I created this post with the link to the original discussion.
Things Not to Do with Menstrual Cups and Cloth Pads We hope you will find it entertaining and perhaps a warning... ;)
