How To Clean Your Vibrator – Cleaning & Safety Tips For Maintaining Your Sex Toys

By Elena Ognivtseva

Cleaning and caring for your sex toys is a vital part to ensuring long life and maximum pleasure when using them. Different materials used in different types of sex toys need to be cleaned using specific toy cleaners. This user guide will give you a quick overview on how you can care for and maintain your sex toys.

With just a little bit of cleaning, maintenance and proper care, your favourite vibrators will be able to withstand the toughest of times and still be there for you in many years to come. In reality every vibrator has a lifespan, higher end sex toys have a longer life span than the cheaper sex toys or less expensive models. In saying so, all sex toys properly cared for and cleaned will still last much longer than if they are left un attended to.

How To Clean Vibrators

Most vibrators are in fact incredibly easy to clean and maintain. Start off by simply wetting a clean towel in warm soapy water and thoroughly wipe the vibrator off with any residue that may be on the sex toy . It is important not to get the control area or battery compartment wet as this could cause a malfunction in your vibrator. If you use your vibrator anally, you must clean it very thoroughly using an antibacterial soap. The sooner this can be done the better it will be for your toy as well as your self. There are also special cleaners formulated to safely work with adult toys that you can use. Be sure to clean your vibrator soon after using it. Never put off cleaning your vibrator until the next day. A great product we have found customers love is the fleshlight anti bacterial spray. Simply spray this product onto your sex toy, give it a good wipe down and your good to go. Quick and easy to ensure the safety of your adult toys.

After the cleaning process of your vibrator is complete, dry the adult vibrator with a soft, clean cloth. If your vibrator is made from cyberskin, you should apply the special cyberskin powder to maintain the vibrator’s unique feeling and functionality. After thoroughly drying your vibrator, you should wrap it in a dry cloth and store your vibrator in a cool, dry place ready for your next masturbation session.

When we look at the different sex toy materials these are the recommended cleaning methods:

Plastic – soap and water, rubbing alcohol, sex toy cleaner
Latex – mild soap and water, sex toy cleaner
Jelly – mild soap and water, sex toy cleaner
Cyberskin – mild soap and water, Cyberskin cleaner, sex toy cleaner, talcum powder
Silicon – soap and water, sex toy cleaner

Vibrator Battery Replacement

Batteries contain highly corrosive chemicals, and it’s not recommended that you leave them inside your vibrator for extended periods of time. By removing the batteries from your sex toy will help make your vibrator last longer and stay more powerful. This will not only conserve battery juice but will also prevent the toy from accidental turning on when you least expect. If you don’t plan to use your vibrator for longer than a week, you should remove the batteries, wrap your vibrator in a dry towel and store it in a cool, dry place.

Most vibrators take AA or AAA batteries, but some models take common watch batteries. Be sure to take note what battery you need when you remove them from the vibrator. The batteries on most models can be removed by unscrewing the base of the vibrator or removing the panel on the remote control.

How To Store Your Vibrator When Its Not In Use

Storing your adult vibrators is very important since certain materials don’t play nice with each other. After cleaning and removing the batteries from your vibrator you need to store it. Certain materials are “tacky” or sticky to the touch. These vibrators need to be stored in lint free fabric, linen is great for this also as are velvet bags.You should also be careful with your silicone vibrator sex toys. Silicone cannot be stored with other silicone toys, the material slowly desinigrates and you end up with faulty unusable sex toys that should not be used.
