Single use menstrual products
A reusable menstrual cup is worn in place of tampons to collect rather than absorb menstrual fluid. It is made of medical-grade silicone and can be safely worn for up to 12 hours and used for years. Dimensions fall between most other cup brands sizes 1-2.
When inserted correctly, you shouldn't be able to feel your Dot Cup at all and there will be no discomfort. The Dot Cup can hold up to 28mL of fluid, which allows you to go about your day or your sleep without interruption! For reference, a medium tampon can hold about 10mL.
After Each Use: Wash with water and a gentle, mild soap- oil-free, scent-free, and water based is recommended. Re-insert, or if in public, simply empty cup into the toilet, re-insert and wash when you return home.
Between Cycles: Wash with mild soap and water and place it in your storage pouch until next month! If you'd like to fully sterilize your Dot Cup between cycles, you can do so by boiling for 5 minutes and removing with tongs. Let your cup cool and dry, then store in your storage pouch.
100% FDA-approved, medical-grade silicone and class VI medical-grade pigment

Dot Cup is a Chicago-based woman-owned company! Betsy, the founder of Dot Cup, was introduced to (and fell in love with) the menstrual cup back in 2011. Around the same time, she was also introduced to the plight of many people around the world without access to basic menstrual care products. It stirred something inside of her. The problem and its solution quite literally collided in her mind, heart, and hands, and the idea for a 1-for-1 menstrual cup company was born. For every Dot Cup sold, one is given to someone need.
The Dot Cup should last many years, however, when you find that it is time for a new one, simply drop off your clean cup to the store so that we can recycle it properly.
Alternatively, silicone menstrual cups can be burned! Burning medical grade silicone is safe and non-toxic. It takes time (silicone is very heat resistant), so it's best to do it in a wood burning stove or outside in a bonfire. Make sure you're using firewood (not duraflame logs) when burning your menstrual cup. The cup will turn into ash which can be composted!
The paper box can be composted or recycled. The metal lid can be recycled. Reuse the zippered cotton pouch or bring back to the store so that we can recycle it properly.
