Sex toys are a sure way to diversify your life. With its help, you can study your body, find the most sensitive areas and learn how you respond to various stimuli. They're also a great tool for deepening your relationship with your partner and making sex more fun. In this article, we will cover some proper cleaning methods and the best number of cleaning times.
If your toys are properly maintained, you need to know what materials are made of, as different materials require or cannot tolerate certain cleaning products. As for materials, we recommend buying silicone. Silicone keeps you warm and is non-porous, making it one of the best materials for toys. There is a wide variety of materials used to make sex products. However, all materials can be divided into two types: porous and non-porous.
Most products on the market use porous materials, such as a mixture of silicone and PVC. The finished products are usually dildos and male Masturbators with low sensitivity and soft touch. It's much easier to maintain toys made of nonporous materials, such as 100 percent medical-grade silicone, stainless steel, lacquered wood, and borosilicate glass. Wash with soap, but preferably not with strong perfume.
Sex toys without motors can be boiled or put on the top shelf of a dishwasher for disinfection. Make sure toys are waterproof before putting them in the dishwasher. But here we should note that this method is more suitable for products made of steel, wood, or glass. But silicone motors toys should not be put in the dishwasher. Do not use silicone lubricants on silicone toys or store your toys near other silicone toys. It can eventually cause the material to break down and shorten the life of the toy.
How To Clean Toys
To ensure your personal safety, cleaning toys should pay attention to the following tips:
1. Wash before and after use
Even if you leave toys in a dark, secluded, and clean place, they can still collect dust, hair, or bacteria. We recommend that toys be simply washed before use to prevent germs that grow on the surface from entering the body. After use, you can wash the toy while taking a shower. If you leave an unwashed device with other sex toys, it can encourage bacterial growth.
2. Choose the right detergentUse regular soap toys. But antibacterial soaps are not recommended. It can stay on the device and enter and destroy the microbial community the next time it is used.
Optimum storage location
Store your toys in toy product boxes. If not, any canvas, silk or velvet bag, or makeup bag will do. It is important that you wash them before using them. Enclosed Spaces are the best environment for bacteria to grow. If you only have one sex device and are happy to have it handy, you can even store it on your nightstand. Toys made of porous materials can be stored in bathroom cabinets or in drawers. If it's a battery-powered vibrator, it's best to exclude the bathroom from storage as well. Store the battery outside the vibrator; Both the vibrator and the battery will last longer. By taking out the battery when you are not using the vibrator, you can also avoid accidentally leaving the vibrator on. Keep the working parts of the vibrator away from water to prevent corrosion of metal parts, unless you know it is waterproof.
Gels, latex, thermoplastic elastomers, and PVC toys should be stored separately. If stored in the same space, material contact can damage the top layer or leave stains on the surface. In addition, the 100% silicone vibrator can be stored with toys of any material without any adverse changes. As for dildos, they must be placed in a separate bag after cleaning and drying and protected from heat and sunlight.
If you care for your sex toys according to the instructions and store them properly, they will last a long time. The least durable are sex toys made of porous materials that are very difficult to clean. If the toy is stained or smelly, you have to throw it away and replace it.
