How to Clean Sex Toys – A Guide
One of the questions we get asked most regularly at La Coquette is “whats the best way to clean sex toys?”
Everyone wants to keep their sextoys hygienically clean, in tip top condition and ready for action. Cleaning your luxury sex toys properly ensures they last longer and give you more pleasure for longer!
SEX TOY CLEANING 101
It’s vital to clean your toys every time you use them! Ok that might sound obvious but we wanted to start with the basics.
Whether silicone, stainless steel or glass your sextoys need to be cleaned, dried and properly stored. Not only is this hygienic but it keeps your toys in the best condition.
There are a few ways to clean and disinfect your favourite toys.
SOAP AND WATER
Ok – this is the most basic way and we would only recommend for non electronic toys. Use a gentle but disinfectant soap and warm water. Make sure to rinse well so there are no soapy residue remaining. We recommend then laying your toys flat to air dry.
While this method is fine for stainless steel sex toys and glass sextoys, we DON’T recommend it for electronic toys. For these bad boys you need to use another method – read on!
SPRAY TOY CLEANERS
A specialised sex toy cleaner not only kills off any germs and prevents bacteria but also contain conditioning ingredients ideal for silicone. Not to mention these are the easiest and most efficient way to clean. For ease of use we recommend using spray sex toy cleaners (alcohol free) like our Lelo Antibacterial Sex Toy Cleaner or Intimate Earth Organic Spray Toy Cleaner.
SEX TOY WIPES
Ideal for travel or when you don’t have time for a full spray clean, sex toy wipes can clean your toys and often be used as personal body wipes too. For a quick effective clean up method try our System Jo Personal Wipes or Pjur Intimate Wipes.
Whatever way you choose make sure you clean your toys after EVERY use. Choose a method that works for you and your toys.
