Before You Use Your New Toy
It’s recommended that you give your toy a thorough cleaning prior to your first time using it. Cleaning methods will depend on the toy's material.
Note On Cleaners
We offer toy cleaners for purchase that are formulated to be body safe. If you use soap to clean your toys, we recommend a gentle, unscented soap that won't irritate your skin. Be sure to thoroughly rinse your toy after cleaning.
Note On Vibrators
Check to see if your vibrator is "splashproof" or "waterproof" before cleaning. If it's waterproof, it can be fully submerged as long as any battery casing is firmly closed. If it's splashproof, stick to running the toy under the tap to wash or cleaning with a sanitizing wipe. If the toy has batteries or plugs in to operate, remove the battery or unplug from wall prior to cleaning. Never wash a vibrator while it is on. If the batteries are not removable then ensure the toy is turned off before cleaning.
Silicone is a non-porous material that is easy to clean. If the toy has no vibrator, then it can be boiled on your stovetop or cleaned on the top rack of your dishwasher to sanitize. If the toy do does include a vibrator, it can be cleaned with a disinfecting toy cleaner or an antibacterial soap and water.
Some toys include silicone, but aren't 100% silicone. These toys are semi-porous and are reasonably durable. Silicone blend toys can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and water or a disinfecting toy cleaner.
Hard plastics are virtually non-porous and can cleaned by wiping down with antibacterial soap and water or a disinfecting toy cleaner.
Soft plastics and other malleable materials are very porous and cannot be sanitized. It’s recommended to put a condom over the toy before use. Clean with antibacterial soap and water or a disinfecting toy cleaner.
These materials are non-porous and can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and water or a disinfecting toy cleaner.
Wood itself is porous but naturally anti-microbial. Most wood toys are varnished or sealed to make them more moisture-resistant. Never submerge a wood toy in water or boil as it could swell and splinter, causing damage. To clean, wipe down the toy with antibacterial soap and water or use a disinfecting toy cleaner.
Metal toys are non-porous and can be sanitized in the dishwasher or by boiling. They can also be soaked in a 10% bleach solution in cold water, but must be washed with mild soap and water afterwards.
FleshLight toys should only be cleaned with water and FleshWash or another antibacterial toy cleaner. Do not use soap to clean these toys, as it will cause their material to degrade over time. Remember to let these toys dry completely before storing as they can develop mildew if stored wet.
