  1. Material Matters

The first step in caring for your sex toys is understanding the materials they are made of. Different materials require different cleaning and storage methods. Here are some common sex toy materials and how to care for them:

  • Silicone: Silicone toys are non-porous and relatively easy to clean. Use warm water and mild, fragrance-free soap to wash them. Silicone is compatible with water-based and hybrid lubricants.

  • Glass and Metal: Glass and metal toys are non-porous and can be cleaned with warm, soapy water. They are also compatible with most lubricants.

  • Plastic: Plastic toys are often porous, so it's a good practice to use a condom over them for added protection. If you prefer not to use a condom, clean them thoroughly with warm, soapy water. Check the manufacturer's recommendations for lubricant compatibility.

  1. Cleaning and Sanitising

Proper cleaning is essential to prevent the buildup of harmful bacteria. Before and after each use, follow these cleaning steps:

  • Wash the toy with warm water and a mild, fragrance-free soap or a specialised sex toy cleaner.
  • Pay close attention to textured or creviced areas to ensure no residue remains.
  • Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap.

If your sex toy is made of a material that can withstand it, you can also sanitise it by boiling it for a few minutes or using a specialised sex toy sanitiser. Check the manufacturer's guidelines for specific cleaning instructions.

  1. Storage

How you store your sex toys is equally important. Proper storage prevents dust, lint, and potential damage to your toys. Consider these storage tips:

  • Original Packaging: Many sex toys come with their own storage pouches or boxes. Using these is an excellent way to keep your toys clean and discreet.

  • Separate Storage: If you have multiple toys, store them separately to avoid any potential chemical reactions or damage. Individual pouches or wrapping them in clean, lint-free cloth are effective ways to keep your toys safe.

  • Temperature Control: Avoid storing your sex toys in extreme temperatures. Keep them at a moderate temperature, away from direct sunlight or excessive heat.

  1. Battery Care

If your sex toys are battery-operated, it's crucial to remove the batteries after each use. This helps prevent battery leakage, which can damage your toy and pose potential health risks. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding battery use and replacement.

  1. Lubricant Compatibility

Different sex toy materials have varying degrees of compatibility with lubricants. Here's a quick reference:

  • Water-based lubricants are generally safe for all types of sex toys.
  • Silicone-based lubricants can sometimes degrade silicone toys, so it's best to check for compatibility first.
  • Hybrid lubricants are a good option for most materials.
  1. Regular Inspection

Periodically inspect your sex toys for any signs of wear and tear. Look for cracks, chips, or any other damage that could potentially harm you during use. If you notice any issues, it's best to replace the toy promptly.


Properly caring for your sex toys is a combination of hygiene, maintenance, and responsibility. By following these guidelines, you can ensure your intimate items remain in excellent condition, providing you with an enjoyable and safe experience every time you use them. Remember, the key to enjoying your sex toys to the fullest is proper care and maintenance, so always prioritize the well-being of your pleasure products and, by extension, your own well-being.
