how to clean sex.toys
I love sex toys and I love them squeaky clean after every use. Cleaning your toys is absolutely essential for a healthy and safe sexual experience. Many people tell me that cleaning sex toys is intimidating, but when done properly it doesn’t have to be. Here are a few tips I’ve picked up over the years to help you keep your sex toys as squeaky clean as possible!
First things first, you need to make sure that you have the correct cleaning supplies. I use a mild soap and a damp cloth or paper towels for surface level cleaning. For anything more complex, including vibrators and insertable toys, you’ll need to purchase a toy cleaner. Make sure whatever you choose is specially formulated for sex toys and doesn’t have any harmful chemicals.
It’s also important to keep your toys separated from each other when storing them. Cleaned toys should be stored in a cool, dry, dust-free area such as in a drawer. Just make sure that the drawer is free of sharp objects and sex toys fabric that may snag on the toy.
Now that you have the supplies let’s get to cleaning. It’s important to clean your toys before and after use. I like to take my time and be thorough which involves washing the entire toy in warm water with mild soap. Make sure to pay special attention to any crevices or textures that may have collected lubricant or body fluids. Let the toy air dry thoroughly or gently pat it dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
If you need to sanitize your toy, be sure to use a toy cleaner specifically labeled for that purpose. I avoid using harsh chemicals or boiling any toy as it might damage the toy. Be sure to refer to the toy’s instructions before attempting to sanitize it.
Lastly, it’s important to be mindful about which lubricants you use with your toy. Look for a lubricant specifically designed for sex toys and avoid using anything that may contain harmful chemicals. Also make sure that the lubricant is compatible with the material of your toy.
All this may seem like a lot of work, but it’s worth it to take the necessary steps to maintain the cleanliness of your toys. It’s the only way to ensure a healthy and pleasurable experience!
