How to remove yellow stains from my menstrual cup?


After the first few uses of the menstrual cup, it is normal to find yellow spots on its edges. This is because the blood contains large amounts of iron, resulting in the medical silicone in the menstrual cup turning yellow. Contrary to what you may think, the menstrual cup is not getting dirty. Really, it is just having signs that it is being used properly.

Therefore, the yellow spots on the menstrual cup do not imply that it has been damaged or that you need a new cup. In case the yellow color bothers you, there are some methods to remove these yellow spots.
