How to Wash Your Sex Toys

how to wash your sex toys

You’ve got yourself a new sex toy and you’re ready to roll or you want to make sure your current vibe lives longer. The best way to keep them (and you) clean, happy, and healthy is by doing some cleaning. Don’t worry, cleaning your sex toys isn’t more complicated than washing your hands with soap and water. 

We gathered some tips to help you out:

1. Wash, wash, wash.. 

Cleaning your sex toys helps to prevent infections, as bacterias can linger if they aren’t washed regularly, so the first tip is to wash your toys again and again. As a rule of thumb, you should wash them before using it for the first time & before and after each use. 

We know sometimes in the heat of the moment the cleanliness of your sex toy is not the first thing in your mind, so comes tip #2.

2. Find a good storage

Once your toy is clean, you can store it in a case or silk bag to protect it from other bacteria-laden items. It’s important that the case is sealable, whether with a zipper, velcro, or top to keep your vibe safe and sound. 

3. Water and soap

Washing your sex toys shouldn’t be much more complicated than washing your hands. While there are sex toy cleaners out there, they are optional. A good antibacterial soap and water are good enough to keep your toy clean. 

4. Know what your toy is made of

How you can clean your toy changes according to the material it’s made of. 

  • Silicone, Glass, Stainless Steel, or Wood - with a motor: Use antibacterial soap you’d use on your body and a damp cloth to wipe the toy clean. You can submerge under the water if your toy is waterproof. 
  • Silicone, Pyrex, Stainless Steel, or Stone - without a motor: Use antibacterial soap you’d use on your body and a damp cloth to wipe the toy clean. For a deeper clean you can put it on boiling water for up to 10 minutes, or run it through the dishwasher (seriously). Before doing that make sure that your toy doesn’t have any material that will melt with the heat ;)
  • Cyberskin: Use a little bit of soap and warm water to clean it. Too much sudsing can damage sensitive material.
  • Hard Plastic, Elastomer, Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPR), or Jelly Rubber: Use antibacterial soap you’d use on your body and a damp cloth to wipe the toy clean. To keep in mind: these porous materials can still contain some bacteria after washing. Best is to use a condom, especially if you're going to share it with a partner.
