Neighbours have kidnapped my mooncup! (lighthearted, obviously)

Last week I came home to a Hermes delivery ticket for my new mooncup (grin) which said that a house about 7 doors down and across the road had taken it in. I don't know them, but how kind of them to take it in.

Since then, either DH or I have popped over every day at different times (none before 10am or after 8pm) to collect it. Despite (at various times) the TV being on, lights on etc, there is no answer!

I'm pretty sure they haven't popped round either as we were home a lot over the weekend.

I'm due to come on tomorrow so I need it and I'm baffled!

AIBU to think they have clearly opened it, discovered the joy of the mooncup and intend to keep it forever?! wink

No replies for my missing mooncup! Maybe I'm overthinking it.

Is there something of theirs you could appropriate until a time they decide to open the door to you. Like a cat, or a gnome.

Contact the delivery firm

Call me stupid... what the devil is a moon cup?

Singmetosleepzzz Wed 27-Aug-14 20:56:36

Peterandjane, imagine a sink plunger that is especially for your vagina.

MrsCumbersnatch Wed 27-Aug-14 21:07:27

note through the door?

Why do people ask a question on here and wait for an answer, when they could type the same word into Google and get the result instantly?

TonyThePony Wed 27-Aug-14 21:21:53

Mumsnet is better than google, Sally, relax, it doesn't harm anybody.

And I bet if you were to google 'what is a mooncup' the top five links would probably be mumsnet anyway grin

Try it and see smile

Lifesalemon Wed 27-Aug-14 22:28:28

I didn't know what one was either blush
Have googled and now I have another question- how do you rinse it out in a public loo when the sink is outside the cubicle?
Anyway, I really hope you get yours back OP. do you have a back up plan?

NeedsAsockamnesty Wed 27-Aug-14 22:30:08

You take a bottle of water in with you

BeachyKeen Wed 27-Aug-14 22:34:22

Or you take some paper towel, damped at the sink, into the cubicle.

Lifesalemon Wed 27-Aug-14 22:50:06

Thankyou for answering my question. Still not convinced they are for me. Knowing my luck I would drop it whilst rinsing and it would roll off under the door blush

Have only ever heard of mooncups from here, and TBH they sound absolutely rank. Bleee!

BeachyKeen Wed 27-Aug-14 23:06:00

shock How can a moon cup be any more rank than

a) Stuffing a wad of bleached, toxin-trapping cotton up you, where it can shed fibres, cause infections and release chemicals into the most sensitive part of your body. they can leak, pop out when you sneeze, and you still have to grab a bloody string, and hope it doesn't go swinging on the way to the toilet. They absorb water from your shower/bath/pool/lake and introduce it and any bacteria in it, into your vag. Oh, and you can get TSS! That is gross!

B)Wearing a fat smelly pad, that can shift, leak, trigger a rash or in some people, thrush!

Or, there is lovely non-smelly cups, that can be used at any flow without risk

I love my Mooncup. I only started using it after reading about them on Mumsnet and I am so glad I did. They are amazing.

kennyp Wed 27-Aug-14 23:19:01

i got my mooncup from boots. never thought of getting it delivered.

Grumpla Wed 27-Aug-14 23:19:42

Yeah, I like the suggestion of kidnapping the gnome. Or just his hat. That's basically the same thing as a mooncup.

SpaceInvaders Wed 27-Aug-14 23:25:00

It's the fact it's re-used. Time and time again. Surely that's going to get a tad whiffy after several hundred washes

Oldraver Wed 27-Aug-14 23:31:25

Why would it get whiffy ? you can either boil or Milton it after use if you remmeber

Pipbin Wed 27-Aug-14 23:33:00

I use Milton, no whiff at all.

SierpinskiNumber Wed 27-Aug-14 23:48:12

I just wash mine with hot water and soap. There is no whiff.

SierpinskiNumber Wed 27-Aug-14 23:49:44

...and don't forget that it is loads, loads cheaper in the long run.

Maybe one of the neighbours plays a very tiny trumpet, and needed a plunger mute for it. <grasps random straw>

I heart my Mooncup, btw. I will never ever use a tampon again.
