Tips and tricks to clean your favorite sex toys!

The Covid 19 crisis made a lot of people aware of the importance of having clean surfaces, free of viruses and bacterias. This is why we are taking this opportunity to talk about the best techniques you can use to clean your sex toys. 

As you may know, one of the core value at Désirables is hygiene and health. So we obviously think that using a clean toy, especially the ones you insert, is crucial. It will help prevent UTIs, vaginitis and even STI transmission, but your toys must be made from a material that is easy to clean. 

Indeed, the ease with which you will be able to clean a sex toy depends a lot on the material that it is made of. Materials like ‘’jello’’ rubber, cyberskin and PVC are porous and therefore, do not really allow for a deep cleaning. If you are interested in the subject of sex toys materials, make sure to read our blog post: How to choose the right material for your sex toy.

Without further ado, here is a list of cleaning techniques for your porcelain Dalia and other toys; from a simple wash to sterilization.

 Quick Wash icon

Quick Wash 

Wash your toy with a mild fragrance-free hand soap and rinse abundantly to make sure there is no soap residue left. Let it air dry.

Toy Cleaner

If you already have a toy cleaner, in the form of a spray or wipes, you can use this method without worry on porcelain. Make sure to always have the right type of cleaner for your sex toys material, because some materials may degrade if you use an oil-based cleaner.   

Good to know: you can use your menstrual cup cleaner for your sex toys and vice versa!

‘’Boiled egg’’ Method

Toys made from pyrex, medical grade silicone, stainless steel and porcelain can be boiled for a more thorough cleaning. Simply put your toys in a pot of cold water and boil for 5 minutes. Allow some time for your toy to cool down before picking it up!

‘’Mason jar’’ Method

Usually used to ensure that mason jars are free of bacteria, the oven sterilization method can also be applied to toys made from porcelain, stainless steel and pyrex. Place your toy in the oven at 275०C for 20 minutes. Let your oven return to room temperature before picking it up so as not to burn yourself.

Everytime after you clean your toy, make sure to store it in its pouch or box. This will insure that it will be ready to go for your next pleasure session. 

So stay home, stay safe and keep your toys clean!
