Doesn’t the beautiful spring weather this May just brighten your smile? Watching the world come alive and get ready for summer has us in a spring-cleaning mood!
In order to brighten your day – and your menstrual cup – this May, we decided to give you a tutorial for a fresh, all-natural menstrual cup rinse, and the best part is it’s made from ingredients you probably have right in your kitchen today!
What you’ll need:
- 2 lemons
- White vinegar
- 1 cup measuring glass
- A glass jar
- Your Pixie Cup
Do you have everything together? Let’s get started.
This DIY was inspired by a recipe from Waste Free Planet, featured in their incredible e-magazine issue. If you haven’t grabbed a copy yet, you’re missing out!
First, cut lemons into thin slices.
Next, measure out one cup of white vinegar. Vinegar is a natural disinfect, a perfect natural rinse for your cup.
**NOTE: Be careful how you use vinegar because it emits toxic gasses if mixed with ammonia or bleach.
Pour the vinegar into a glass jar and add the lemons. The acid in lemons is antibacterial and antiseptic and it makes the perfect all-natural menstrual cup rinse.
Now, all you have to do is wait! Let the lemon-infused vinegar sit in a cool, dry area for two weeks and you’ve got the perfect all-natural DIY antibacterial menstrual cup rinse!
When you’re ready to use the rinse, combine one part of the infused vinegar to 7 parts water.????????
Let your cup soak for a half-hour and then enjoy the fresh, clean smell!
