How to use and treat the menstrual sponge:
The sponge is a natural product. To neutralize the PH before the first use, it is advisable to dip the sponge in water and vinegar. Then during the use it is necessary to rinse the sponge, squeeze it and insert it in the vagina with two clean fingers. The sponge can be pushed upwards towards the cervix with the middle finger. Its shape will adapt to the vagina. If you feel that the sponge is too big, you can crop it as you like, but you only have to do it after trying the sponge and realizing how small it will become, once moistened and squeezed. The sponge can be easily inserted and removed with two clean fingers (tweezers type). To make the insertion enjoyable you can add a drop of water-based lubricant at the top to be inserted. At first you will feel a little pressure, but it must not bother you.
Tip To trim the sponge: You can only cut the sponge if you feel you need it. Never cut it by half, nor even without having it first washed and squeezed to realize its actual size. You can give it form by cutting 1/8 of its outer perimeter and each cutting head as you feel it. Tip To remove it: if you contract the pelvic floor musculature as if urinating, the sponge is pressed a little outwards and the extraction will be easier.
When the sponge is completely wet, it jackquala under the cold running water, so that the blood does not clot. The rest of mucus will be removed more easily with lukewarm water. The sponge should be removed and washed according to the intensity of the menstrual flow. During the first two days (days of more intense flow), it may be necessary to wash the sponge every 2-3 hours. When the menstrual flow decreases you can carry the sponge for at most 4-6 hours. The change/Wash frequency is similar to a regular swab. Before each reinsertion, the sponge can be immersed in hot water-some women prefer to soak it in lukewarm water before reinserting it because the sponge will be pleasantly lukewarm.Important: In case of vaginal infections, please refrain from using the sponge and use a new sponge after successfully treating the infection. After sexual intercourse, the spunga should always be washed
The sea Spunga should be used only with normal/abundant flow and not for other losses.

How can I treat a natural sponge?.
After use, the sponge should be rinsed with lukewarm water and hung on a cable or wire to dry. A natural sponge should not be boiled because it consists exclusively of natural fibres. If the Spunga is boiled it shrinks and hardens making it less comfortable and limits its useful durability as well. The sponge can only be washed with chemical-free soaps so that they do not remain residue on it that can alter the PH of your vagina.
-How can I clean the sponge?.
Let the sponge soak in a 1:2 solution of vinegar and water for a couple of hours every now and then, for example, overnight. Alternatively, a solution of 1/4 of a cup of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) and 1/4 of a cup of water can be used, which will also serve to whiter the sponge if it has been obscued by use. 2 or 3 drops of tea tree oil in 1 cup of lukewarm water for 10/15 minutes will perform the same job. Tea tree oil is very effective against bacteria and inhibits the growth of up to 60 strains of bacteria and will eliminate any odors. After cleaning, the sponge should be allowed to air dry, so do not leave it in a damp bath where it can become infested with bacteria. The sponge is better to keep it in a bag of cotton a clean sock.
