We will tell you how to clean your sex toy hygienically and properly in 4 easy steps after you have finished using them.
Tip #1: The cleaning
The most important tip first: Always clean love toys immediately after use . Please do not first kick the masturbator under your bed with the intention of cleaning it “later”. You forget that in the end, and then everything is useless.
Cleaning is uncomplicated in most cases. Many toys can be cleaned with water (lukewarm at most) and a little mild soap . This also applies to your Fleshlight : Simply pull the sleeve out of the can and rinse it under warm water and soap. To be on the safe side, use a special toy cleaner that you can buy not only online, but also in the friendly sex shop around the corner.
Please keep your hands away from cleaning products containing alcohol, as these attack the material.
Speaking of material: toys made of latex or rubber require special care because the pores in these materials are the perfect breeding ground for germs. In this case, be sure to get an antibacterial cleaning agent for your love toys from the erotic store.
And then? After cleaning, allow the toy to air dry thoroughly before putting it away again. If you’re prone to forgetfulness like me, I recommend setting a timer to remind you to put your toys away properly.
Tip #2: The care
Soap and water is not always enough. So-called real-feel toys made of cyberskin , nature-skin or TPE (which stands for thermoplastic elastomers and is often used to make so-called real dolls) should definitely be treated with special care powder after cleaning . This prevents hair, dust or small crumbs from getting stuck on the vibrator or masturbator and also ensures an even more realistic feeling during the next one-on-one, as you get the skin-like structure of the material. You do not have to wash off the powder beforehand.
Pro tip : You should even powder it again before use. Feels even more real as it is less sticky.
Tip #3: The energy thing
Is your sex toy battery operated? Then remove the batteries from the device when not in use. That way they last longer. Batteries must be fully discharged before you recharge them – by the way, they can remain in the toy. But who do I tell? You also have at least one tablet.
Tip #4: Storage
Heat and direct sunlight are poison for the often sensitive material of many sex toys. It is therefore essential to keep your treasures in a cool, dry and preferably dark place. Now you could theoretically put everything in the small box in your Pax closet system. But be careful : Please don’t just hoard all the toys together. Because it can actually happen that the high-tech materials do not get along with each other. For example, love toys made of silicone should never be stored side by side, as the surface can become porous through contact.
For this reason, and to keep the good pieces really hygienic, I recommend that you put each toy in its own small bag or box.
