How long does the Mooncup last?

How long will my Mooncup last?
With the advised cleaning and storage, the Mooncup® will last for years and years, if there is any change in the material of your Mooncup if it splits or becomes sticky, or there is any change in the shape of your Mooncup then it will need replacing. There may be some natural staining that occurs over time which does not affect the hygiene or effectiveness of the Mooncup. If you choose to remove the staining, soak the Mooncup in diluted sterilising fluid (used for sterilizing baby equipment and available in chemists), follow the manufacturer’s dilution guidelines, and soak for the minimum recommended time, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.
