It’s still important to keep sex safe! It is very important that you care for and clean your sex toys regularly. Anything that spends time as close to you as your Vibrator, Fleshlight etc. needs to be clean. Below are some great tips to clean your sex toys properly. If your planning to share any of your sex toys with your partner, we recommend using a condom to prevent the spread of STDs and other bacteria, in addition to proper cleaning. It is however, always safer to have, and only use your own sex toys.

First of all, it’s important that you clean your sex toy when you first receive it, before use. You should also check your sex toy for any cracks, tears or abrasions If its is rubber, jelly or silicone. If your toy is made of a harder plastic, or even glass, check thoroughly for any chips or cracks. Aside from trapping bacteria, any cracks or tears on a sex toy can also pose a danger to your through cutting and/or tearing your skin.

Sex Toys Made of Silicone: If your toy is made from silicone it will be nonporous, meaning it will not absorb bacteria or dirt like jelly toys. Cleaning silicone toys is very easy. You can use a sex-toy cleaner or gentle antibacterial soap with warm water to clean it. If your toys is NOT battery operated and does NOT contain an electrical system, you can even soak it in hot water for a few minutes. Once your toy has been cleaned, let at air dry, or wipe it down with soft cloth. 

Sex Toys Made of Rubber/Jelly: If your sex toy is made of rubber or jelly, it will be porous, and these pours have the potential to trap germs and dirt. Such sex toys can be cleaned by using a gentle anti-bacterial soap and warm water. When using soap to clean your toys, there are two very important things to keep in mind. 1. Use a very gentle antibacterial soap – soaps made for babies and infants are perfect, 2. Make sure all soap is completely washed off the product after it has been cleaned. This will prevent any damage being done to the product, and yourself during use. There are many sex-toy cleaners available that can be used to specifically clean sex toys.  Once your toy has been cleaned, let at air dry, or wipe it down with soft cloth.

Sex Toys Made of Realistic Materials Such as Cyberskin, UR3, Soft Touch, Neoskin: Products using materials such as these are generally those on the realistic side – products such as realistic penis’s, male masturbation toys such as Fleshlights, and some erection rings. Be a bit more careful washing these products than other toys, a scratch or abrasion to the surface may ruin the toy. Washing these toys in warm water and antibacterial soap is the best way to go about it. After you have thoroughly cleaned the toy, let it air dry completely.
