The dilemma of where to place your cup for the moments you have to take care of other pressing matters between washing and reinsertion is a real one. Some of us are simple- place it on a square of TP and that’s that. There are other more permanent and attractive solutions out there if you know where to look! Here are a few ideas for cup spots that work great as a place for your cup before or after washing. If you’re proud of your cup you can even opt to let it live in your spot the other 20+ days of the month!
Jewelry dishes, those intended to go on your nightstand to hold the bits and bobs you sleepily remember to remove just before your head hits the pillow, come in so many styles and their size is often perfect for a menstrual cup! I found this fantastic little dish in the clearance aisle of a TJ Maxx for a sweet deal at just $2.00! Cup shown: Sckoon Size 2
Target end caps are a perfect place to find your new cup spot in the home decor section. This ring holder by Umbra in white plastic is delicate and decorative. While white plastic may stain from the blood of a used cup I found it a perfect place for clean cups to dry. Cup Shown: Lunette Size 1
My mother-in-law wouldn’t have dreamed of the reason I was so excited about her gift of artisan soap that came on a tiny little stoneware dish! Once the soap was used up the stoneware dish was the perfect size for a menstrual cup spot! Cup shown: Lena Cup Size B
Reusable face round or nursing pads are things you may already have in your home that make a perfect place to rest your cup. The benefit of these is that you can toss them in the laundry when dirty and use just a few throughout your cycle. Cup Shown: MeLuna Size L
And who could forget the old favorite-and free- cup spot, TP! A square of toilet paper placed next to the toilet on at the sink for your cup to rest on before or after a wash is effective and flushes with no need to wash it. I like to “prettify” things in my life but you can’t underestimate the effectiveness of this trick. Cup Shown: Diva Cup Size 1
