Regular cleaning is key to maintaining the longevity of the material of any sex toy. Be sure to wash before first use and immediately after each use before storing. When cleaning, be careful to keep water and cleanser away from the cartridges and electrical parts. You can simply use regular soap and water, or as we recommend an anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner.
Depending on the type of material, certain sex toys will require extra care. Here's a breakdown:
Silicone: Hypoallergenic and easiest to maintain. 100% silicone dildos that are non-battery operated may be boiled for two to three minutes, or washed with soap and water. NEVER boil silicone sex toys with electrical components. Let them air dry completely or dry in a lint-free cloth before storing.
Plastic/Acrylic/Glass: All can be washed with warm water and anti-bacterial hand soap and sterilized with an alcohol-soaked cotton ball (rinse thoroughly afterward. Acrylic and glass toys may be boiled or submerged in hot water if they are not battery operated.
Rubber/Latex and Jelly: These products are etremely porous, so be sure to wash them with warm water and anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner. Rinse well until not a trace of soap is left, as it can degrade the material and cause irritation to you. Covering these types of toys with a condom is highly recommended, especially if it is being inserted vaginally or anally.
Realistics: CyberskinTM, FuturoticTM, NeoSkin, SoftTouchTM, UltraSkin and FauxSkinTM - offer a realistic look and touch. However they are extremely porous and required extra care to keep in good condition. Once thoroughly washed with sex toy cleaner and air dried - sprinkle "renewing" powder or cornstarch. Never use talcum or baby powder, as these can cause irritation and may leave residue inside the body.
