Removing the Cup
While in a wide squat push or bare down (like you are about to do number 2), then reach out for the ring of the cup. While holding the ring, pinch the bottom of the cup to release the suction and slowly remove the cup.
Do this in the bathroom floor so you’ll not accidentally drop your cup in the loo.
