How do I clean Flex Reusable Disc?

Taking good care of your Flex Reusable Disc will help to extend its lifespan and keep it clean and fresh for years. Here’s what we recommend: 

During your period, remove, empty, and clean your Reusable Disc at least once every 12 hours. Start with clean hands and grab some mild soap or cleanser (like Flex Foaming Cleanser). 

Rinse your disc in cool water first—this will help prevent odor and staining of the medical-grade silicone. Then, switch the water to warm and add a few pumps of cleanser. Use your fingers to massage the entire surface of the disc, including both sides of the rim and catch, and then rinse. 

Shake off excess water or let the disc air dry before reinserting. If you’re putting your disc away until your next period, make sure it’s completely dry before storing. Store Flex Reusable Disc in a cool, dry place in its included pouch. Never store your disc in an airtight container. 

Once every month or so, it’s a good idea to boil your Reusable Disc to sanitize it. Heat a pot of water to boiling on the stove. Place the disc in the water and boil for 10 minutes, keeping an eye on it the entire time and stirring occasionally to make sure the disc does not come in contact with the sides or bottom of the pot (as that could melt the silicone). Remove from the pot and let the disc cool and dry completely before storing. 

Remember: Never wear Flex Reusable Disc if you have a yeast infection or other vaginal bacterial infection. Resume use only once the infection has completely cleared. If Flex Reusable Disc was inserted during a yeast or bacterial infection, remove it immediately and dispose of it in the trash. Do not attempt to clean and reuse your disc if it was worn during a vaginal infection.
