Step 1 – Fill the sink with luke warm water and a small squirt of special wool wash/soap. Gently swish your wool around the sink and leave to soak for 5 minutes. Then, remove wool and fold in a towel to press out excess water. Do not wring your wool out as this will cause it to lose shape.
Step 2 – Add a pea sized blob of lanolin (Lansinoh is fine) to a bottle of hot water with a similar amount of wool wash/soap. Shake the bottle until the lanolin has mixed. Be sure to check for lumps/balls of lanolin.
Step 3 – Refill the sink with luke warm water, submerge the wool and gradually ad the lanolin mix to the water whilst swishing the wool around the sink. Be careful not to pour the mix directly onto the wool to avoid sticky spots. Leave to soak overnight.
Step 4 – Remove the wool and fold in a towel to press out excess water. Take are not to wring or scrunch your wool.
Step 5 – Lay the wool out to dry on a flat surface and away from direct heat or sunlight. Drying may take a few days.

Hello! I am a new-intern at Sckoon, Shizuha. Today I will be sharing my 5 must-have items for any trip!
1: Flip Flops
Make sure to pack a pair of flip flops EVERYWHERE you go. They can be used as room slippers, flight slippers, casual sandals, beach sandals, shower sandals and more. I would recommend that you to buy a pair of expendable but cute flip flops to be suitable for any occasion!
2: Laundry Nets for Post-Vacation Indulgence
Bring various sizes of laundry nets and use them instead of packing cubes. Once you go home, all you need to do is to throw them into a washing machine!
3: Easter eggs for beauty sponge
If you love your makeup sponge but always are annoyed your make-up bag gets wet when carrying it, I know your struggle. Wrap your sponge in some tissues to soak up moisture, and use a leftover Easter egg cup as a cute and effective case. You will never need to worry about wetting and ruining your favorite make-up brush.
4: Water Bottle and Dried Fruits
If you love fruit infused water like me, or simply want to spice up your daily hydration, make sure to bring your own water bottle and dried fruits! It's sometimes difficult to get fresh fruits and store them on a trip, so dried fruits are the way to go! Put some dried fruits of your choice into your water bottle, and rest it overnight. Add in ice cubes the next morning and your infused water is ready to go!
5: Sckoon Cup!
Bring your own Sckoon Cups in case of an emergency! Pads and tampons take up a lot of space in your luggage, especially when you are on a mission to pack lightly, but just can't leave behind your favorite top. Whether or not you know your period is coming, squeeze the silicon cup into your suitcase — it literally takes up no space, yet you are guaranteed to be worry free whether you’re chilling on the beach or hiking in the mountains!

I am now asking for suggestions on blog topics from you guys! Please comment down below if you have something to share with the community.
I hope you enjoy the rest of summer :)

If you're new to menstrual cups, you may be wondering where to start? Here at Sckoon, we want to help you be as informed as possible! That's why we've pulled together all the great resources we have throughout our website in to one space.
First things first, you may be wondering what SIZE to get? Menstrual cups can look intimidating - if you don't fold them, they appear a lot wider than a tampon. You may find yourself wondering "THAT goes WHERE????"
Here's the good news - menstrual cups should be made using soft, safe materials that can bend, fold, and move with your body. Practice one of our suggested fold techniques (listed below), and you'll see just how small your Sckooncup can get:
Perfect! Now that we've picked a menstrual cup fold (we recommend starting with one of the first three listed above), we now need to learn how to insert and remove our cup.
Inserting and removing takes time. It's recommended you give your new cup (and yourself) about 3 months for trial and error. It's also recommended you DO NOT try inserting your menstrual cup for the first time as a "dry run." We know you may be tempted, but inserting your cup may be easier on a heavier flow day. For more information on inserting and removing your cup, head to our How To Insert & Remove A Menstrual Cup blog post.
Last, but certainly not least, let's talk about a few of the questions you may have in our FAQ's below.
