Stop spending hundreds of dollars a year on tampons and switch to this USA made medical-grade silicone menstrual cup. Pair with our cotton panty liners for a completely zero waste period!

The cup may remain in the body for up to 12 hours at a time, unlike a tampon which must be changed more frequently. Menstrual cups collect menstrual flow, rather than absorbing it. When removing the cup, grip the stem as high as possible. Carefully read and follow care instructions.  

How To Use

 

  • Fold the cup before inserting it into the vagina. Here are three of the most common ways to fold your cup. Both are easy. Pick the one that works for you.
  • C-Fold: Fold the cup into a C-shape by flattening the cup and bending it in the middle to bring the two ends together.
  • Punch-Down: Use your index finger to press down on the rim to collapse the cup. Pinch to hold in place.
  • 7-Fold: Fold the cup so the rim makes a 7-shape by flattening the cup and then folding the top right corner of the rim across to the opposite side of the body of the cup.

  • Inserting your cup is easier when using water as a natural lubricant.
  • You can insert your cup while sitting, squatting, or standing with one leg raised (try setting your foot on the toilet seat).
  • Hold your folded cup firmly below the upper rim. Get comfortable.
  • Spread your legs, and with one hand, gently separate. your labia and with your other insert your cup slowly, rim-first into your vagina.
  • Slide it up and back at an angle (towards your tailbone, not straight upward), until the body of the cup is completely inside.
  • You did it!

Position

  • Position your cup lower than a tampon, but feel free to move it up a little if that's more comfortable.
  • Allow it to open. It’s okay for the cup to pop open once it’s inside the vaginal opening before it’s completely inserted. Once in position, release the cup.
  • To make sure it has fully opened, thus creating a suction seal against the vaginal wall, rotate your cup by pinching the base (not just the stem) and turning it. This will prevent leaking.
Positioning

Secure

  • Double-check to make sure the cup has opened by running a finger around the outside of the lower middle of the cup. If you feel any folds, rotate the cup again until it opens completely creating a suction seal.
  • No folds? You’ve successfully inserted your cup, enjoy 12 hours worry free!

Removing & Reinsterting

Remove:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and mild soap.
  • You can stand, sit, or squat, but removing your cup is much easier if you are relaxed.
  • The stem is not a pull tab, do not pull hard on the stem to remove.
  • Break the suction seal by pinching the base of the cup with your thumb and index finger. Do not just pull on the stem.
  • Wiggle the cup side to side as you gently pull it out. Keep it upright to avoid spilling.
    • Helpful hint: Removing the top edge of the rim from the vaginal opening first, and then tilting the cup upright and removing the bottom edge, can be a helpful way to pull out the cup.
  • Holding your cup firmly, empty it into a toilet or sink.

Reinsert:

  • Wash your Saalt Cup. Rinse first using cold water, then wash using warm water with mild soap. Rinse thoroughly.
  • Your cup is ready to reinsert!

Cleaning & Storing

Wash

  • Rinse your cup in cold water after use.
  • Wash thoroughly using hot water and mild soap. Avoid strong cleaners or anything that may irritate your skin.
  • Use a soft rag to wipe away any buildup.
  • Clear the four holes at the top of your Saalt Cup by passing water through the holes or using a disposable toothpick.

We carry small and medium-sized cups, soft small and medium cups, and cups specifically designed for teens! So which one is right for you?

Light to regular flow (2-3 tampons a day), first-time cup user, low cervix. Recommended for teen/petite folks, or if you haven’t comfortably inserted anything in your vagina before.

Medium:

Medium to heavy flow (3+ tampons a day), first-time cup user, high cervix. Recommended if you’ve carried a pregnancy to term.

Soft Small: 

Light to regular flow (2-3 tampons a day), have used a cup before and experienced any of the following:

—   Bladder pressure
—   Difficulty peeing with your cup in
—   Difficulty pooping with your cup in
—   Vaginal sensitivity
—   Increased Cramping

Soft Medium:

Medium to heavy flow (3+ tampons a day), have used a cup before and experienced any of the following:

—   Bladder pressure
—   Difficulty peeing with your cup in

—   Increased Cramping
Teen Cup:
A smaller but just as mighty version of the traditional small cup. This cup features a longer stem for easier removal.

Material + Care

Material: 

The Saalt menstrual cup is made of 100% medical-grade silicone and includes FDA compliant dyes that are BPA, latex, and chemical-free. The silicone has been tested and certified for cytotoxicity and skin sensitization per rigorous FDA testing standards so it is biocompatible and hypoallergenic. Because silicone is set in a permanent bond, it cannot melt and nothing can ever leach out.

Sanitize: 

  • Disinfect your cup between cycles by boiling your cup in water for 4–5 min (no more than 7 min) to sanitize it. Use tongs or a wire whisk to ensure the cup doesn’t touch the bottom of the pot.

  • You may also sanitize your Saalt Cup between cycles by wiping it with a soft rag and 70% isopropyl alcohol after thoroughly rinsing in water.

Store:

  • Dry your Saalt Cup thoroughly and store it in the bag provided (or another breathable container). Never use a plastic bag or airtight container for storage.
  • Some discoloration may occur over time. This is normal and may vary from one person to another.
  • If your cup is ripped or torn, or the silicone shows signs of deterioration (which can happen after using non-recommended cleaners) it’s time to replace the cup.

I was scared to try BUT ITS SO WORTH IT

I was v nervous about this at first.... I'm the girl who was very scared of tampons at first like how does this work? will it get stuck? Am I gonna be bad at this?

OK literally this was so easy, it is cheaper, creates less waste, and it takes up so much less space under the bathroom sink than boxes of tamps!!
You get a lil instruction book so you can figure out some folding strategies for putting it in, and once its in, you really don't feel it at all. If it feels a little off, walk around a bit and it kind of just goes into place....which is a weird sensation at first because of the suction lol but then you know you're good.

I will say that since the pandemic, I have been in my house. I def wouldn't want to have to empty this thing in a public restroom. However, it can stay in up to 12 hrs so even during workdays all that takes is timing it right.
