How to Properly Clean Sex Toys

Sex toys have without a doubt redefined what self-pleasure is and has brought immeasurable freedom and control to anyone that uses them. If you have a sex toy then I imagine that you already have developed a great connection with it. Reason being that with time, after all the fun you have with it, you have grown as attached to it as a child is attached to a toy. When it comes to taking care of sex toys, then you have to make sure you do it properly. Since it gives you so much pleasure, it’s only right that you do. A sex toy is not something you store out in the open, no argument there, since there is always going to be a sense of privacy attached to it. What I mean to say is that I imagine if you store your sex toy anywhere, it must be a very safe place. The one thing, however, that you need to realize is that cleaning a sex toy is as important as making sure you store it in a safe place.

Before letting you in on all the details about cleaning your sex toys let me share a tip with you. Always make sure to clean your toy before using it after purchase. You are most welcome. Good hygiene is always paramount especially when you want to stay healthy. Failure to properly clean that sex toy that brings you heaven on earth can be damming. I’m sure you must have had of UTIs and how painful they are if left untreated. Well, using sex toys and failing to clean them properly puts you in the same situation and possible risk. A sex toy, if not cleaned will leave you at risk of contracting these infections from all the bacteria that builds up over time when you keep using it and leaving it uncleaned. The effect of this, other that the infections, is that you are more than likely to develop resistance to self-pleasure and I’m sure you do not want anything that could possibly come between you and the pleasure brought about by your sex toy. Fear not though. Buckle up as I explain how you will avoid all that.

Now before going into details it is important that you understand that sex toys are made from different materials. Some of the materials that are used for the manufacture of sex toys include; hard plastic, elastomer, TPR, or jelly rubber. Understanding the material that was used to make the sex toy you are using helps a great deal in knowing how to clean it. Over time, however, a recommendation has been made to use toys made of medical-grade silicone as it has come to be a personal favorite for many people. All this materials that are used to make sex toys can hold bacteria, even after being cleaned; making it very crucial to make sure it is done right. It might sound like a lot of work but in reality it is not. It is simply actions you need to take to keep you pleasured and safe from infections. All these precautions have led to toy making companies opting to including instructions on how best to clean the sex toys, having been advised by professionals. You will, however, find that not all toys will come with these instructions and what you want to do in such a scenario is to make sure you do not shy off from asking for directions on cleaning at the location of purchase. Or simply log onto this website where we go dinging for all the details so that you do not have to.

Now as I stated earlier sex toys are fun but can be very dangerous if they are not cleaned correctly. The question that this brings is just how often you should clean your sex toys. Now I’m going to give an example with every time you go out for a jog in the morning and come back sweaty thus warranting a bath. The same applies to your sex toys. A lot of dedication is required as you need to make sure you clean your sex toy after every use. The first thing that comes to mind for most people when the word cleaning is mentioned is soap and water right? Reason being it is the most readily available means. The good news is that you can actually use soap and water to clean your sex toys, but you have to make sure you wash them for 20 seconds and ensure that the water is warm. Such cases are in scenarios where the material allows for it, or is recommended. The next step will need to have you dry the sex toy with a clean towel. For those of us that are completely in love with perfection, and opt to use safest methods available then, using specialized sex toy cleaners remains an option for them as well.  The one precaution though is that you need to make sure it is water-based and it is both alcohol and paraben-free. Many people have adapted to using UV light to clean their sex toys. Before adopting this method do keep in mind that UV lights will only disinfect your sex toy rather than removing germs. For this reason you will be required to wipe the sex toy with a clean towel as a precaution.

After you have made sure that your sex toy is clean enough and ready for when you need it next, make sure to have a clean place to store it. Do not store your clean sex toy together with other toys that you have used and not cleaned. A sex toy is without a great source of pleasure. Purchasing one should never have you worry about the risk of infections and the only way to avoid this is to make sure you clean them thoroughly. By doing so, you will be taking care of yourself, and making sure your sex toy serves you long enough.
