Sex toy cleaning is extremely important but before you start there are a few things you should keep in mind. Sex toy materials are not created equal and cleaning them is specific to each sex toy. Cleaning a sex toy properly and then finishing with a quality sex toy cleaning product is really important to 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 when it comes to SEX TOYS! You can put yourself and others at risk if you share your sex toys and open up the chance for infection and diseases, so don’t do it! Okay, now back to cleaning; Finding out what your toy is made of is the first thing you need to know. Check the back of the package or online if you’re unsure of the material it’s made of before using a sex toy cleaner.
According To Finn, Porous Sex Toy Materials Include:
- Elastomer (rubber) varieties
- Thermoplastic rubber or TPR for short referred to as “skin-safe rubber.”
- Thermoplastic elastomer, aka TRE, also referred to as “skin-safe rubber.”
- Jelly rubber. This is a kind of rubber that sometimes (not always) contains phthalates, a group of chemicals that have come under fire for their potential to affect human health. The scientific jury is still out.
- Materials like Sensafirm and UR3, which can help toys feel like skin
- Latex Sex Toys aren’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration in the same way condoms are.
What are the common nonporous sex-toy materials?
- Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic
- Soda-lime glass
- Metals like stainless steel and gold
How to clean your sex toys properly
Sex Toys are all made with different materials, for example, silicone, glass, stainless steel, and stone. Some are motorized and need additional care if they’re not waterproof. We have compiled a list of sex toy cleaning instructions to keep you and your sex toys safe based on what they are made of.
How to Clean Non-Vibrating Silicone Sex Toys
Non-motorized Silicone sex toys are the easiest to clean with multiple options. The quickest and easier method is soap and warm water, topped off with an anti-bacterial spray such as Wet International Antibacterial Vibe Wash. If you’re looking for a deeper clean they can be boiled for 8-10 minutes or even placed in the dishwasher (yea, kinda, YUCK!), hopefully BY themselves!
How to Clean Vibrating Silicone Sex Toys
Sex Toys that need more attention when cleaning are those that are NOT waterproof. Getting water inside the moving parts may ruin the toy completely, so read all cleaning instructions. These toys have moving parts you won’t want to get wet.
Plenty of sex toys nowadays are “Splash Proof”, if they get a little wet via cleaning or slightly wet in the shower they will be okay. Vibrating toys can be washed carefully with warm soapy water, taking extra care that water doesn’t make ist’s way into the actual unit. Again, sprayed with an anti-bacterial spray and left to air dry. Waterproof vibrators need less care when being cleaned since water isn’t going to affect them. Start off with soap and warm water and end with a toy cleaning spray. Sex toy cleaner gets all the areas that may have been missed so there are no lurking bacterias in cracks and crevices.
How to Clean Pyrex and Stainless Steel Sex Toys
Pyrex and stainless Steel Sex Toys are durable and again easily cleaned in the variety of methods mentioned above: Soapy warm water, boiling, dishwasher, and ending with an anti-bacterial sex toys cleaner. One of our top-selling and favourite toy cleaning products is WICKED FOAM ‘N FRESH TOY CLEANER.
How to Clean Stone Dildo Sex Toys
Stone Dildos sex toys are still available and a little more tricky to clean, however not as common. One of the first dildos ever created was made from stone, now that’s going WAY back in time! Stone being porous can harbour germs and bacterial and water that is too hot could crack the material, and not recommended. Again use a mind soap and water with ending with a sex toy spray and air dry.
How to Clean Cyberskin Sex Toys
Cyberskin: Only use mild soap and water, too much soap can damage sensitive material. After carefully washing highly spray with ADAM MALE TOY CLEANER a favourite amongst our male customers. Over time your toy could become slightly tacky, if this happens just add a SLIGHT dusting of corn starch. Add a little cornstarch to your hands and pat down the toy gently will bring your toy back to life again. Another great option is UR3 REFRESH POWDER powder that is specifically made for these types of masturbators.
Hard plastic, Elastomer, Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPR), or Jelly Rubber: These porous materials even after washing with soap and water can still contain bacteria and STDs. DO NOT ever share your sex toys!
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.
