How To Look After And Clean Your Sex Toys

If you’ve recently found yourself using search terms such as ‘how to properly clean sex toys’, it’s likely that you’ve treated yourself to an expensive, intimate present and want to know how to properly care for it. Proper care and treatment will ensure you get the most out of any sex toy.

Most toys are pretty easy to care for once you know how. Follow the advice below to ensure your new sex toy stays clean and lasts longer.

 

Washing

Always wash your toys before the first use and after each time you use them. Old habits die hard, try get yourself into a good habit of always cleaning your toy after use. That way, any time you get the urge to give yourself a little ‘me time’, it’s clean and ready for use.

 

All toys can be cleaned using a mild soap and warm water or a toy cleaner such as this one here.

 

Drying

Allow your sex toys to air dry naturally. Towel drying a toy can be counter productive as with some materials the towel fibres will stick to your toy and render it not fit for use. Silicone toys, such as the Happy Rabbit Vibrator are especially notorious for this. Steel toys such as the Luxury Bunny Tail Butt Plug won’t cause such problems. Always use your own discretion and ensure a toy is visibly clean before storing it away.

 

Storage

Store your toys away from excess heat and direct sunlight in a lint free bag (plastic bags are not recommended). Make sure to remove batteries from toys when not in use.

 

General Care & Information

Never fully submerge any electrical or battery operated toys in water unless the manufacturer specifically states that it is 100% waterproof.

Toys of any material can be used with a water based lube. Silicone lubricant is safe to use with glass and steel toys and also some silicone toys if stated safe by the manufacturer. Silicone degrades silicone, so unless it’s clearly stated on a silicone toy that silicone lube is ok to use, please stick to water based.

Lastly, and most importantly, always use a condom on your toys if sharing with other people. Safety is paramount when sharing toys and ensuring that our bodies stay safe and healthy while we share our sexual experiences with others is extremely important...so play as hard as you want but always, play safe.
