How to Use you Lunette Cupwipes
Using Lunette Cupwipes is easy! First wipe and dry the cup with a tissue, then sanitise the cup with the Lunette Cupwipe. After sanitising let the cup dry completely before you insert it again (this takes only a few moments). Furthermore it is recommended to sanitise the Lunette menstrual cup before and after your period by cleaning it with the Lunette Cupwipes or boiling it in hot water for 3-5 min.
**It is important to note that while the cup wipes are perfect for your cup, they are not suitable for cleaning your genital area**

How does the menstrual cup differ from the tampon?
Both are internal menstrual protection. A menstrual cup collects the blood and the tampon absorbs it. A tampon can be used only once whereas a menstrual cup can be used for many years.
The absorbing capacity of a tampon is given in grammes and the capacity of the menstrual cup in millilitres. One ml of menstrual blood is comparable with a gramme, so the capacity of tampons and menstrual cups are comparable. The capacity of the Lunette menstrual cup is 25 ml (model 1) and 30 ml (model 2). The absorbing capacity of a tampon is 6-18 g.
