Mi-24 Hinde Sippy Cup Valve Replacement
July 16, 2011 6:57 PM   Subscribe

My daughter has a sippy cup with her name on it similar to this. I can't find any replacement valves.

The rubber valve has developed some weird black spots that won't come off with soap or even chipping off with a toothpick, so I tossed it. I've found the manufacturer here but their website is useless.

The cup is usable without the valve, but pretty much only at the dinner table.

Our valves also got black on them. It's mold, I think. We soaked the valves in a bleach/hot water solution in a bowl overnight. Rinsed them really well in the morning and put them in the dishwasher.

Or, what you could just do is go out and buy a new sippy cup -- we've found that our kids chew on them so much that buying new ones every so often is a good idea.

We had a cup like that and lost the valve. Never found a replacement and used it as is. Then a girlfriend told me about how much mold she'd discovered between the name and the cup. Go ahead, stick a q-tip down in there. Blech. And so ended the reign of the name cup in our house.

Response by poster: Shush, I was hoping to ignore that.
