There are several different types of sexual health and wellness products on the market. This article focuses on the proper cleaning and care of vibrators and dildos specifically, and, if followed, can not only prove positive in elongating the life of your sex toys, but also ensure you stay healthy below the belt.
Traditionally, you hear of three different ways to clean your vibes and dildos: toy cleaner, boiling, and UV light sanitization. Here we delve into these methods and their pros and cons BUT we stress, no matter how you personally choose to clean your sex toys, we STRONGLY encourage the consistent and conscious effort to maintain your toys cleanliness to mitigate the risk of creating and spreading germ causing bacteria.
This is always the BEST choice. Just like sanitizing your hands, these anti-bacterial sprays, suds and rubs are the surefire way to eliminate odor causing and infection causing bacteria.
For those who are less inclined to spend the extra cash on cleaner, boiling does the trick. If your toys are made of pyrex, silicone, glass or metal (and are non motorized) simply submerge your pleasure product in boiling water for a quick, high-heat rinse. Careful not to burn your fingers!
UV LIGHT SANITIZATION
For the super germaphobe, UV light sanitation can be used to sterilize your sex toys. On the pricier side, some may find this option a bit superfluous, however, if you are using your sex toys for both anal and vaginal stimulation, it may be the best alternative to ensure all germs are killed effectively.
Regardless your preferred method of cleaning your pleasure products, we encourage consistent cleaning. Its good for you and good for your toys.
As for storing your clean toys, its always best to keep them out of direct sunlight and in a spot that is least likely to attract dust and dirt. Ideally, you will keep your pleasure products in a designated toy box or chest, but if you're not THAT organized, a clean drawer is a great spot too.
