Tips for Taking Care of Your Masturbator and Dildo


Your favorite sex toys can last for longer with proper care and maintenance. Proper care is also very important for your health and safety. Ideally, the best way to keep your toys in proper working condition is to keep them clean both before and after use.

Here are a few easy to remember tips for taking care of your masturbator and dildo.

 

1. Clean your sex toys before and after use.

    There are two ways of cleaning sex toys:

    • Using warm water and a little antibacterial agent, then rinse it off.  Finally, dry it off with a clean towel. The scrubbing should be thorough to reach any crevices and folds. This method is easy, quick and pocket-friendly.
    • Spray the sex toy with a special toy cleaner, rinse or wipe it off then dry it with a clean towel. Toy cleaners contain antibacterial agents and deodorizers that keep your sex toy clean and safe for use.

    Sex toys have a general cleaning method, but anal masturbators require special care. Always clean them with hot water and antibacterial soap irrespective of their constituent material. 

    2. Sex toys need proper storage. 

    Exposure may lead to the toys collecting lint and hair while just lying on the shelves. Use lint-free towels and keep them in a special storage bag or container.

    Sex toys made of realistic material are toys made from a special material such as UR3 or Cyberskin. Their special type of material enables them to look and feel like real skin. After the final wash, make sure it is completely dry. Lightly dust it with renewal powder. Store the dildo or masturbator in a sealed plastic bag with a spoonful of renewal powder. The renewal powder can be substituted with cornstarch in case you run out of the powder.

    3. Use water-based lubricants

    Water-based lubes are clinically safe to use with all types of sex toys. Other lubricants may cause chemical reactions with some masturbators and dildos especially those made of rubber.

    4. During storage, don't let your masturbators and dildos touch.

    Some sex toys react when they come in contact with other toys due to their material. The easiest method to store them is to put each of the toys in its own storage bag to eliminate any accidents that may lead to damage.

    5. Battery operated sex toys should be stored without the batteries inside.

    Storing a masturbator with batteries runs the chance of leaking battery acid, draining it dead or worse still get it bumped and turned on. After use, remove the batteries then clean the sex toy. While traveling also, it is advisable to remove the batteries.

    The above tips will ensure the longevity of your masturbator and dildo while ensuring your health and safety are upheld to the highest standards. Get in touch with CherryAffairs today for all quality sex toy related products.
