Poor cleaning of sex toys can lead to urinary tract infections. And this is not at all what we want, right?
The choice of care for sex toys depends on the material of a particular device: silicone, cyberskin, thermoplastic elastomer (soft porous material, most often male masturbators are made of it), metal, glass, etc. The most versatile option is washing with warm soapy water. Glass, metal, and silicone with no motor inside (such as menstrual cups) can be boiled. Get a separate saucepan for this, which will not cross the food.
Battery-powered toys are rare these days, but they do exist. Batteries should be removed from the case before washing, even if you just wipe them with a damp cloth. I also advise you to remove the batteries if you do not use this device regularly. Batteries have the unpleasant property of leaking. This is how I lost several vibrators from my collection.
For motorized toys, look for the letters IPX on the packaging – this is the waterproof rating. Devices marked with IPX7 and IPX6 can be wetted with running water. Anything marked IPX5 and below should only be cleaned with a damp cloth or toy cleaner.
Toycleaner is an antibacterial spray for sex toys. They are produced by different brands for every taste and budget – from a couple of hundred to several thousand rubles per bottle. This is a great way to clean any device in a situation where you don’t have the opportunity or desire to wash a toy at the moment (I perfectly understand the reluctance to play raccoon right after an orgasm). Spray the toy with a spray and wipe…or at least the bottom of a T-shirt or sheet if it’s clean. But still, wash the vibrator properly.
We use the toy for its intended purpose, wash it, dry it (mandatory!) – now you can put it in a case or box. In the case of male masturbators made of soft porous material, I recommend using special powder or at least corn starch after washing and drying. As a rule, such a powder consists of it and differs from food starch in a finer grind.
