Adut Toys Melbourne

Everyone wants to maintain their sex toys clean and sanitary, and doing so is simple with the appropriate approach and cleaning solutions.

Cleaning your sex toys may not be the most exciting task on your list, but it is necessary. After all, the last thing anyone wants is an unexpected and nasty UTI. Furthermore, keeping your sex toys fresh and clean means you’ll be able to enjoy them for longer, preserving their quality so you can play again and again.

While plunging your dildo into a basin full of warm soapy water is a good start, using a sex toy cleaning and then properly storing your toys will all help to keep your sex toys in excellent condition.

How to clean sex toys: The basics

To maintain maximum cleanliness, clean your sex toys before and after using them.

All you need for cleaning is hot water, a good-quality sex toy cleanser, and a clean dry towel. Cleaning precautions for each toy vary depending on factors such as the material used and whether the toy is battery-powered, rechargeable, and/or waterproof, but for many toys, it is a simple task that will leave your treasured pleasure friend sparkling in minutes.

Before we go into the cleaning suggestions for each type of toy, here’s a more basic strategy to keeping most in good shape.

To clean general sex toys:

  • Quickly rinse under warm water
  • Spray your toy with Fresh Sex Toy Cleaner
  • Leave for 30 seconds or so, then clean any stubborn areas (such as ridges or nodules) carefully before rinsing away the cleaner solution with warm water.
  • To dry, you can leave your toys to air dry on a clean surface or speed up the process by hand-drying with a fresh clean towel.
  • By cleaning thoroughly and drying your toys completely, you will prevent dust and bacteria build-up and keep your toys looking and feeling brand new.

“Having only used toy cleaning wipes previously, I found this product so much better,” one buyer said of our sensualmassagemelbourne Fresh Sex Toy Cleaner. The amount in the bottle is quite nice, it cleans toys very effectively, and it lasts much longer than wipes. It’s simple to apply and doesn’t have an overbearing aroma.”

How to clean sex toys: The Dos and Don’tsple

Cleaning your sex toys is rather simple, but there are a few frequent mistakes that may be avoided. If it helps, recall our main Dos and Don’ts:

  • DO clean your toys before and after use
  • DO use a sex toy cleaner for extra peace of mind
  • DO remove any sex toy batteries and close the battery compartments tightly before cleaning
  • DO leave your sex toys to air dry thoroughly, or dry them with a fresh, clean towel
  • DON’T put your sex toys away before they are completely dry
  • DON’T leave your sex toys on a radiator or next to a heat source to dry (and definitely don’t use a hair dryer!)
  • DON’T store your newly cleaned toys together.

How to Clean Your Sex Toys

It’s critical to maintain your sex toys clean. Uncared-for toys not only lose their luster, but they can also be harmful to your pets’ health. In this video, we show you how to clean your toy correctly.

How to clean a non-waterproof vibrator

Fortunately, there are a plethora of waterproof and/or submersible vibrators available. It doesn’t matter how wet you get those vibrators while cleaning, which is excellent, but you could find that a handful of your favourite toys contain changeable batteries, in which case you need to be especially cautious.

When it comes to motorized toys, such as battery-powered vibrators, you want to avoid causing water damage that will prevent your toy from operating. The idea is to use a wet towel and sex toy cleaning or soap to clean the sex toy without immersing it in water.

Here’s how to clean your non-waterproof vibrator:

  • Rinse your toy with warm water 
  • Try to prevent water from going into the battery compartment 
  • Spray your toy with the good quality Toy Cleaner 
  • OR use a UV Toy Cleaner
  • Hand-dry with a fresh clean towel, or leave to air dry on a clean surface 
  • Store in a clean, dry place, or use a sex toy storage bag that fits your toy

How to clean a dildo

If your dildo is motorized (that is, it runs on batteries or is charging), the same vibrator regulations apply: don’t submerge your toy in water if it is not IPX7 certified and submersible. Instead, simply clean it with water and repeat the process for non-waterproof vibrators.

Non-motorized dildos made of non-porous materials, such as silicone, stainless steel, stone, or Pyrex glass, may be cleaned by submerging them in water.

Here’s how to clean your non-porous dildo:

  • Submerge your toy in warm, soapy water
  • Spray your toy with Sex Toy Cleaner
  • Hand-dry with a fresh clean towel, or leave to air dry on a clean surface
  • Store in a clean, dry place, or use a sex toy storage bag that fits your toy

How to clean anal toys

Cleaning anal sex toys may appear to need a more difficult process than cleaning sex toys used in the vagina, on the penis, or elsewhere. Anal sex toys, such as erotic massagers, prostate massagers, or butt plugs, may be cleaned in the same way as regular toys: with warm water and a sex toy cleaner or mild soap. Just keep motorized anal gadgets out of the water.

Here’s how to clean your waterproof anal sex toys:

  • Submerge your toy in warm, soapy water
  • Spray your toy with the Sex Toy Cleaner
  • Hand-dry with a fresh clean towel, or leave to air dry on a clean surface
  • Store in a clean, dry place, or use a sex toy storage bag that fits your toy

If your anal sex toy is NOT submersible, refer to the guidelines for non-waterproof vibrators (first guide).

How to clean realistic-feel toys

Realistic-feel sex toys are constructed from a combination of (typically trademarked) materials designed to feel as close to actual flesh as possible. To maintain realistic-feeling sex toys smooth and supple rather than sticky, there’s one more step to take (which you don’t need for other types of toys).

To prevent that tacky feeling, dust your toy with a renewer powder, such as the Doc Johnson Ultraskyn Refresh Powder, and keep the clean toy separate from any others. 

Our Customers experienced the magic of a renewer powder they say: “After purchasing a CyberSkin cock and the hubby having a collection of realistic pussies, after washing and leaving to dry they always felt a tad sticky, so we knew we had to make this purchase.” And, wow, it truly breathes new life into our toys, restoring them to useable condition!”

Go to the product page on sensualmassagemelbourne and double-check the material under the ‘How it feels’ section to see if your toy is made of realistic-feeling material and requires extra attention.

CyberSkin, Fleshlight, Futurotic Plus, LoveClone, Loveskin, Magic Flesh, Realskin, Refined Touch, Sil-A-Gel, Silk Skin, Skin Touch, SoftSkin, SoftTouch, True Skin, UR3 (Ultra Realistic 3.0), Virtual Skin are examples of realistic-feel materials.
