How To Clean & Store A Vibrator Properly——Yes, You Have To Do That

How To Clean & Store A Vibrator Properly——Yes, You Have To Do That

Masturbation brings sexual pleasure to women and men. A well-delivered ergonomic vibrator can give a person a fresh thrill they can't get in a two-player game. At the same time, the reproductive system is exercised and benefits sexual health.

But if you can't be sure to give this "little hero" proper care, then it's best not to try. Incomplete cleansing harms and even brings you severe diseases such as urinary tract infections and sensitive skin allergies. Ultimately, they will increase your risk of sexual frigidity. Please ensure you take care of your body by following these steps.

 

1. Do not share your sex toys.

Each person's bodily fluids carry different types and amounts of flora, and rashly touching another person's secretions is usually more harmful than good for you. (Although people tend to ignore this risk when kissing.) Trained healthcare workers will pay more attention to this issue.

By sharing sex toys, you also exchange your endocrine system flora physically. Do not think running water and soap will remove all your marks left on the toy, even though it smells like your favorite LA MOUSSE. Even if your toy uses seamless silicone, the perimeter of its buttons can still be a breeding ground for bacteria.
Whether it's an in-body vibrator or the famous non-contact suckers, you'll want to follow this principle. Yes, there are no exceptions.

 

2. Regularly cleaning your vibrator will keep the material and motors in shape.

 

It’s impossible to have a 100% definitive answer on what ingredients are safe for sex toy cleaning. There just hasn’t been any research on it.

Then there are your personal feelings about the environment and chemicals.

The truth is——sex toy cleaners should NOT be your go-to washing method.

So, what’s best?

 

Mild soap plus warm water, careful cleaning (with a rinse and air dry after) is always the best route.

Then why use sex toy cleaner at all?

When I want a deep cleaning, I like to use a sex toy cleaner as a stage after soap. It’s another layer of hygiene for the germophobic. Remember: the material of the toy affects your choice of toy cleaner.

When shopping for a sex toy, you often see wording such as ''medical grade silicone'', ''soft body-safe silicone'', and ''verified silicone material''. Does this cause you confusion?
Well, medical grade silicone certified by international standards is a term used only in the particular field—however, abuse of these terms in the commercial world of adult products. (Don't worry too much; the CE-certified sex toys from loli's nook are qualified to navigate sensitive terrain.)

 

Choose a water-based toy cleaner to care for your silicone sex toy, for silicone-based could react on the surface of the silicone material, creating a film-like substance that may damage the vibrator.

We can’t forget that none of this applies to POROUS toys – since the nature of the material means the antibacterial properties mean nothing and do nothing, and the toy will end up absorbing any toxic chemicals.

3. Sex toy storage 101

The most important thing to know about how to store sex toys is this: A sex toy must be clean and dry before it is put away. Storing a toy that is dirty or even still wet from cleaning, will cause bacteria to develop that can lead to skin irritation, product malfunction, or even infection when the toy is next used. So after cleaning the vibrator, use tissue or a towel to absorb the moisture on its surface to provide a dry storage environment for the item to last longer.

Storage, whether a cloth bag or a storage box, should be discreet and easy to access.

Throwing sex toys in your nightstand drawer or hiding them under your pillow can expose them to germs and air pollutants. You don't want that!

 

3.1 Sex Toy Storage Bag

We're not talking about a plastic bag here. It doesn't breathe and can cause unpleasant things to fester. A simple cotton or polyester drawstring bag is a good and economical option. 

3.2 Sex toy Storage Box

Special storage boxes are a better option for people with many toys and those who want to store items such as lube, condoms, and chargers in one place. While regular plastic storage bins can work well for this purpose, plan to keep each toy in a separate bag to prevent possible material degradation when toys are mixed.

3.3 Choose Sex toys with Dust Cover - the new trend for fall 2022, and we highly recommend it!

Cute B and Hee Tu from loli's nook come with a solid ABS dust cover, reminding you to promptly clean and properly store your toys. At the same time, it is discreet and considers your desire to keep all these secrets in the bedroom.
