Cleaning your silicone toys is important for both your health and the longevity of your toys. Silicone is a non-porous material, which means that it does not absorb bacteria the way that other materials, like porous materials, can. This makes it much easier to clean and less likely to harbor bacteria. However, because it is non-porous, it can be more difficult to clean if you don’t know the right techniques.
There are a few different ways to clean your silicone toys, and the best method will depend on the type of toy and the level of cleaning that you need. For example, if you just need to do a quick cleaning before using your toy, you can probably get away with using soap and water. However, if you need to do a more thorough cleaning, you may need to use harsher methods, like boiling or bleaching.
No matter what method you use to clean your toy, it’s important to make sure that you rinse it off afterwards with warm water. This will help remove any soap residue or other cleaners that could cause irritation during use.
What You’ll Need
To properly clean your silicone toys, you’ll need:
– rubbing alcohol
1. Wash your toy with mild soap and warm water. You can do this by hand or in the dishwasher. If you’re using a dishwasher, make sure to put it on the top rack.
2. If your toy is still dirty, you can disinfect it by boiling it for 3-5 minutes, or soaking it in a 1:10 vinegar and water solution for 5 minutes.
3. You can also use rubbing alcohol to disinfect your silicone toy. Soak your toy in a 1:3 rubbing alcohol and water solution for 5 minutes, then rinse with warm water and allow to air dry.
Steps to Cleaning
Cleaning your silicone sex toys is important for two reasons. First, it will help to keep your toys in good condition so that they last longer. Second, it will help to keep you healthy by preventing the spread of bacteria and other organisms.
Silicone is a non-porous material, which means that bacteria and other organisms cannot penetrate it. This makes it ideal for sex toys because it prevents the spread of infection. However, silicone can still harbor dirt and debris, so it is important to clean your toys on a regular basis.
There are several ways to clean your silicone toys. One way is to use soap and water. You can either use a mild soap or specially formulated toy cleaner. If you choose to use soap and water, make sure that you rinse your toy thoroughly with warm water afterwards. Another way to clean your silicone toys is by boiling them in water for three minutes. This will kill any bacteria or other organisms that may be present on the surface of your toy.
No matter which method you choose, always make sure that your toy is completely dry before storing it away.
Tips for Maintaining
Silicone is a popular material for sex toys because it is non-porous and very easy to clean. You can use soap and water, or you can put it in the dishwasher (top rack, no soap). You can also sterilize it by boiling it for 3-5 minutes. If your toy is battery-operated, make sure to remove the batteries before cleaning.
Why You Should Clean Your Toys
Whether you use your toys solo or with a partner, it’s important to keep them clean. Not only will this help them last longer, but it will also prevent the spread of bacteria and other harmful infections.
There are a few different ways to clean your toys, but the most important thing is to use a mild, unscented soap and warm water. Avoid using harsh chemicals, as these can damage the silicone material.
Once you’ve washed your toy, be sure to dry it thoroughly before storing it away. If you have any doubts about how to clean your specific toy, you can always check the manufacturer’s instructions.
How Often Should You Clean Your Toys
It’s important to keep your silicone toys clean, both for your own health and to prolong the life of the toy. How often you need to clean them depends on how often you use them. If you use them regularly, you should wash them with soap and water after each use. If you don’t use them as often, you can still wash them with soap and water before each use. You can also sterilize them by boiling them in water for 3-5 minutes, or by using a bleach solution (1 part bleach to 10 parts water).
The Bottom Line
We’re going to cut to the chase here: the best way to clean your silicone sex toys is with soap and water. You can use a mild dish soap or even just some warm water. Give them a good wash, making sure to get into all the nooks and crannies, and then rinse them off. You can also sterilize them by boiling them for 3-5 minutes or putting them in the top rack of your dishwasher (without detergent).
If you want to be extra safe, you can also use a 10% bleach solution, but be sure to rinse them very well afterwards. You should also avoid using silicone lube with silicone toys, as it can break down the material. If you must use silicone lube, apply it to your body instead of the toy.
