But the fact that they’re reuseable means they er… need to be cleaned.
So, one woman did just that. And now she’s found herself in a spot of bother.
The Mumsnet user (aptly named mooncupbeverage) took to the site to share her predicament following the sterilising of her mooncup.
“This morning I sterilised my mooncup (hasn’t been sterilised since last period) in boiling water in a mug,” she wrote.
She pulled it out of the water, but in a rush to get her children out to school she forgot to empty the water and put the mug in the dishwasher.
This shouldn’t be an issue – right? She could just tidy up when she gets home…
Except her husband had recently taken to drinking hot water on occasion instead of coffee.
Yes, you can see where this is going.
“He drank the mooncup water and was finishing the mug as he left for work,” she wrote.
“There’s no point telling him is there?”
