How to Care For and Clean Your Sex Toys

1 Comment

Just as you would care for anything you love, a little TLC will go a long way in making your toys last. And squeaky clean toys, that work when you need them most, will keep a smile on your face and a twinkle in your eye!


~ Always wash your toys with warm water and antibacterial soap after use. Better yet, use some specially formulated, body safe toy cleaner. If your toy isn’t waterproof, simply wipe it clean using cleaner or soap, and a damp cloth.

~ Pure silicone toys can be boiled for up to 10 minutes – just make sure they’re waterproof. And because silicone is non-porous, and silky smooth, it’s a wonderful choice for toy material. Medical grade steel toys, like nJoy’s Fun Wand can also be boiled. Just be sure to let them cool down before use!

~ Gently towel dry or air dry after cleaning

~ Always remove batteries from your toys when not in use. You’d be very sad to find batteries left unused had corroded… and ruined your little companion (think Pocket Rockets and Rabbit Vibrator!) And removed batteries means no crazy surprises when your mother-in-law comes to visit and your purse starts to buzz…

~ Make sure to use condoms on toys you share, especially if the toy is porous. Bacteria are very hard to clean out of porous materials, so please play it safe.

~ Most luxury sex toys, like Lelo’s little beauties, come with a silky drawstring pouch for safe storage. Always store your toys in individual containers. If your toy came sans storage, pick up some pretty organza bags. You can easily see what’s stored inside, and your toys will be protected from dust and any other little nasties that might be floating about.


~ If something goes around or into your lovely bum, be sure to wash it thoroughly before it goes near your, or anyone else’s, vagina or clitoris. Bacteria love this transfer and can cause some nasty problems if given the chance. If washing isn’t convenient, then slip a condom onto your toy.

Now it’s time to enjoy some good clean fun!

I agree with the advice about removing your batteries. I just discovered that my "waterproof" vibe leaked. Had I removed the batteries sooner, it wouldn't have corroded the compartment.
