If you want to get the best, longest-lasting performance from your sex toys, you will have to take good care of them. Although, you might not want to burden yourself with the chore of cleaning your toy right after a mind-blowing orgasm, you should keep in mind that those 5 minutes spent on a little maintenance can save you lots of money and frustration in the long run. So below are a few useful tips to help you keep your sex toys in tip-top condition.
When it comes to using sex toys, the importance of good hygiene cannot be overestimated. So take your time to clean your sex toy thoroughly before and after every use. The best way to clean adult toys is to purchase a specially designed sex toy cleaner. This is a medical-grade, antibacterial spray-on cleanser that will be suitable for most people.
Here are some general sex toy cleaning tips:
- Most toys can be cleaned with a cloth and mild soapy water. Wipe your toy dry or let it air dry before use or storage.
- Never use abrasive or strong detergents, otherwise you’re standing a good chance of damaging your toy beyond use.
- Rinse waterproof toys with hot water.
- If your toy is not waterproof give it a "sponge bath" with a soapy wet cloth.
- Wipe your toys dry, as most germs cannot live on a dry surface.
In case you’re going to share your sex toy, even if with your regular partner, you may want to use a condom. Also, if you want to use your dildo or vibrator for both vaginal and anal stimulation, you should never allow bacteria from the anus to come into contact with the vagina. Of course, you wouldn’t like taking a break during action to clean the toy, that is why we recommend using either a new condom or – which is even better – a different adult toy each time the toy is used for different orifice. By the way, if you are really into double penetration, why not invest in an adult toy which is designed speciallyfor you? The Double Pleasures Anal Vibrator is a realistic penis and a thin anal probe combined together in one vibe to give double stimulation that will bring about the most explosive toe-curling orgasms!
