DivaCup Smell

 I have been using my DivaCup for about a year now and have never had a problem with it before. My last cycle (on the very last day), it came out with a horrid (almost vomit educing) smell. I didin't have any sort of infection or anything. I cleaned it (soaked it in boiling water until water was cool) and let it air out for a few days and put it away until my period came again this month. 

I did a timid smell check as was pleased to find that there was none. So I popped it in and went about my day. When I went to empty it tonight the smell was back. I have no idea what the deal is. Maybe I'm leaving it in for too long (12 hr)? Before I was able to leave it in for 12 hours without a problem. I have no idea what the deal is. Please help! I DO NOT want to go back for tampons permanently. 

Should I try to air it out again or try to buy a different cup?
