All sex toy materials are not created equal, so your care for them should be specific to each individual toy. Cleaning a sex toy properly is really important for your health as well as the longevity of the toys.
We shouldn’t even have to mention this and yes we were all taught to share toys but NOT SEX TOYS! Do NOT share or use anyone else’s toy or you’re putting yourself at risk for possible infection and diseases! Okay back to cleaning, you first have to know what your toy is made of, if you’re unsure check the box it came in or check online.
According to Finn, porous materials include:
Elastomer (rubber) Varieties
Thermoplastic Rubber, or TPR for short, sometimes called “skin safe rubber.”
Thermoplastic elastomer, AKA, TRE, also referred to as “skin-safe rubber.”
Jelly Rubber, This is the kind of rubber that sometimes (not always) contains phthalates, a group of chemicals that have come under fire for their potential effects on human health. The scientific jury is still out.
Materials like Sensafirm and UR3, which can help toys “feel like the real thing.”
Latex, which isn’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration in sex toys the way it is in condoms.
Some common nonporous sex-toy materials:
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic
Borosilicate glass (as in Pyrex and similar varieties) Shop Icicles
Metals like stainless steel and gold
Silicone, glass, stainless steel, or Wood—and it’s motorized: Use mild soap and a damp cloth to wipe the toy clean.
Silicone, Pyrex, Stainless Steel, or Stone—and it’s not motorized: For a deeper clean, place it in boiling water for 8-10 minutes, orrrr run it through the dishwasher without soap BY themselves (seriously–the hot steam will help sterilize it, says Kerr).
Cyberskin: Use only a little soap and warm water to clean it. Too much soap can damage sensitive material. If your toy becomes tacky, put a SLIGHT dusting of corn starch on your hands and pat down the toy or you can purchase UR3 REFRESH POWDER powder made for these types of masturbators.
These porous materials listed can still contain bacteria and STDs after washing with soap and water DO NOT share your toys! Hard plastic, Elastomer, Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPR), or Jelly Rubber:
ONCE YOUR TOY IS SQUEAKY-CLEAN, Kerr says to dry it off completely with a clean paper towel and store it in a case or silk bag to protect it from other bacteria-laden items. Buy sex toy cleaners & Refresh Powders online now!
