instead cup/baby wipe/potentially awkward social situation question

Hey superstars!

I started using those Instead disposable menstrual cups last month and I love them, but I have a few questions.

1. I am broke as heck and I only have a few cups left, and I can't seem to find more (that's another question), so is it okay for me to re-use the disposable ones? They have similarly designed reusable ones so I'm assuming that if the flimsier material of the disposables isn't ripped or broken, it should be okay, right?

2. I just moved into residence at university, so I'm sharing a washroom with a bunch of other girls. It's set up like a public bathroom with stalls and sinks outside, so it's not really possible for me to yank the thing out, go to the sink to rinse it, and then go put it back in. Would it be okay for me to use baby wipes or something similar to wipe them out?

3. Does anyone know where I can get more of these things in Canada? The website says Shopper's Drug Mart but I've been to two of them in my new city (Windsor, Ontario, if anybody in the area has info) and haven't found anything. I *am* right near the border (literally, I can see Detroit from my window) but I don't really want to have to make a trip over there just to see if they have these things, although I'll take a look if I go.

Sorry for the wordiness. Thanks in advance, you people rock!
