Insertion: First wash your hands thoroughly before, as well as after inserting your sponge. Wet your sponge with lukewarm water then thoroughly squeeze out any excess water. Twist up your sponge into the shape of a tampon then standing with one leg up or sitting on the toilet, with your free hand gently hold open the skin surrounding the vaginal opening. With your other hand place the tip of the twisted sponge at the opening of your vagina using your thumb and index finger or thumb and middle finger to push the sponge inside your body aiming upwards and back. The resistance you may feel when you try this is the normal pressure of your pelvic muscles which will help hold the sponge in place. Removal: We recommend changing your sponge every 4-6 hours. You should not leave your sponge in for any longer than 8 hours. When a sponge is ready to be changed it will begin to work its way to the vaginal opening as it is saturated. Simply feel for the perimeter of your sponge with your fingers, grasp it, and pushing with your pelvic muscles, pull out gently.
Rinsing and Storage: Do not use harsh synthetic soaps on your sponge. You may however use a mild natural soap to wash your sponge with such as Dr. Bronner’s. Just add a few drops to your sponge when washing between removal times. If you do not have a disinfectant with you or access when out in public then wash your hands thoroughly and rinse your sponge out with water before reinserting.
