How To Properly Clean Your Sex Toys

Adult toy cleaners

Maintaining and cleaning sex toys are extremely important for sex toy owners.

If you are going to use the same toy internally (oral, vaginal and anal) during the same session, the most reliable way to prevent the spread of any disease is to use a condom.

Using a condom prevents having to interrupt during sex to clean the toy and lessen the chance of spreading bacterias.

Almost all toys feel better used with lubricants. Water-based lubricants are the safest.

See my previous post about lubricant usage.

How to Clean Sex Toys

Antibacterial soap and warm water is a must for cleaning toys.

Any sex toy that had contacts with body fluid should be washed in soap and water and then soaked in a solution of 10% bleach and 90% water.

Rinse well in clear water for several minutes after to remove bleach and soap.

Commercial adult toy cleaners that can be purchased that have been specially formulated to kill all bacteria and germs and at the same time preserve the life of the toys.

Cyberskin Sex Toys Cleaning

Cyberskin is extremely sensitive and should be cleaned following use with warm water and stored in a clean dry place to keep the toy like new.

Silicone Vibrators & Dildos

Silicone is a very durable material so it can be easily cleaned with soap and warm water.

Even boiling the toy for disinfection or wash it in dishwater will not harm it.

However, to go to such an extreme, make sure there are no plastic parts and the toy is waterproof.

Rubber Dildos, Plugs & Etc

The best and easiest way to keep rubber clean is with a condom.

Clean all rubber products after use with soap and warm water.

They need to also be rinsed well as the leftover soap residue can cause damage to the rubber and also irritate the skin.


Do not use any oil-based lubricants on latex. Use only water-based products with latex.


The leather is a very difficult material to keep clean because of all the irregularities of the material.

To clean leather, first, wash the edges with a strong foaming cleaner and a brush, then wipe down all of the surfaces with hydrogen peroxide and allow to dry.

Follow this by using saddle soap for additional cleaning. The last process is using a leather conditioner to restore it back to its natural finish.

The leather conditioner is an absolute must because without it the leather will begin to dry out and crack. This process does not work on suede.

Storage After Cleaning

Try not to keep the toys under sunlight, try to store in dry places, and try to remove the battery after use to keep the battery lasting long.
