How to take care of your toys
- Never insert any product to the point that it cannot be easily controlled and removed.
- If you lose a toy in your vagina most often you can just straddle a toilet and relax your muscles ~ coughing or sneezing will help expel a toy from the vagina.
- If you lose a toy in the anus you MUST visit the ER for removal. Always clean sex toys before and after use, never sharing toys if not cleaned beforehand and never putting anything into the vagina after it’s been in the anus (unless you use a condom and remove the condom before inserting into the vagina).
Easy tip: Keep vaginal toys and anal toys separate and use only in those areas.
- Make sure you don’t use silicone lube with a silicone toy. It will melt and fuse together!
- If pain or discomfort occurs during toys use, stop immediately.Do not use toys on broken or irritated skin.
- Do not store your vibrator with the batteries in it.
- The batteries may corrode and damage your toy.
- Never use your electric or battery-powered vibrator in water unless it was specified “waterproof.”
- Water may damage the motor or result in electric shock!
Cleaning Your Toys
Temptations Parties sells two great toy cleaners (Mighty Tidy and ViroFree) that sanitize and sterilize and work on all toys, but for added information, I have listed other ways to clean your toys. Of course, you can use soap and water to clean your toys, but soap can dry out your skin and will do the same to your favourite toys depending on what its made of, plus, not all soap is antibacterial. If your toy is not waterproof you will damage the toy by submerging it in water ~ just don’t submerge the battery pack. You can also dab on hydrogen peroxide for a super clean feel. Never submerge electric toys!Silicone: Vastly superior to rubber or vinyl dildos, silicone polymer warms up quickly, retains body heat, is non-porous and easy-to-clean. To keep the silky feel and refresh your toy, sprinkle with cornstarch.
These dildos are made of a clear, soft, and flexible substance that looks like it contains air bubbles. Cleaning: This material is a non-porous type of rubber that can be clean with gentle soap and hot water. To keep the silky feel and refresh your toy, sprinkle with cornstarch.
This material is soft and supple, and looks and feels remarkably like skin. Cleaning: Rinse with hot water (avoid soap or harsh detergents); to keep the silky feel and refresh your toy, sprinkle with cornstarch.
Use just water-based lubes on latex, as oil-based substances will break it down. Most toys are not made of pure latex but a combination of latex and jelly or silicone. Cleaning: Latex is non-porous and easy to clean with soap and water.Plastic: Hard plastic toys are very easy to clean. They have smooth surfaces.
Cleaning: Soap and water
Leather harnesses are cleansed with a moist rag, and nylon webbing harnesses can go in the wash with the rest of your laundry.Oil products destroy latex! That means oil-based lubricants, massage oils, butter, olive oil…anything including oil. Use an only water-based lubricant with latex.
