sex toys cleaning tips and reminders singapore

Sex toys are awesome and an excellent addition to your sex life. But sex toys also could become a lot less awesome if you don’t care for them properly.

 

Here are warm tips and reminders to care for your toys:

  • Wash your toys after every use.
  • If you want to be really safe, wash your toys before every use, too.
  • Don’t submerge any battery-operated toys in water to wash.
  • Figure out what material your sex toy is.

 

Nonporous Material Toys:

Silicone

Do: gentle soap and water

Don’t: please don’t use alcohol clean silicone toys, it will shorter the life of them.
Glass

Do: gentle soap and water

Don't: don’t expose it to extreme temperatures (like in the dishwasher), to avoid warping.
Pyrex

Pyrex is basically heat-resistant glass, so it can be boiled, put in the dishwasher, or washed by hand.

Stainless steel

Boil for 10 minutes, soak in bleach and water (then make sure to RINSE THOROUGHLY), or wash in the dishwasher.

Porous Material Toys:

Cyberskin, Neoskin, and other skin-like materials

Do: wash with soap and warm water and dry

Suggestion: a light coating of cornstarch (protection powder, we do sell this toy protection powder, contact us to buy) to keep these toys maintained

Porous materials are hard plastic, cyberskin, nylon, neoprene, jelly rubber, vinyl and soft vinyl, acrylic, elastomer, and leather.

Porous materials are more sensitive to temperature and prone to warping, so most should be washed the same way: with soap and warm water, either in the sink or with a soapy washcloth. 

 

  • Make sure you’re using the right lube.

Silicone toys: No silicone- or oil-based lubes; go with water-based or hybrid lube instead.

Make sure to wash it off afterward.

 

  • Don’t just toss them in your bedside drawer and call it a day.

Store your toys in a correct way, either storing your toys wrapped in cloth or in a cloth bag or buying a storage box specifically for toys.

 

  • Take the batteries out of your vibrator when you’re not using it.

Leaving the batteries in can actually corrode the toy and drain the battery life, since they’re conducting at a low charge when in the toy. And there’s nothing sadder than the halfhearted buzz of a vibrator on low batteries.

 

Happy sex toy adventures, everyone!
