Erotic toys are a great way to enhance your sexual well-being, whether you're entertaining yourself or a duo.
They're not as much fun if you don't lavish care and love on your cuties. Failure to clean them, applying the wrong lubricant or storing them poorly can lead to all sorts of trouble, such as warped toys, shorter lifespans, and even increased chances of you and your partner contracting a germ.
In a survey on the cleaning of erotic toys, 55% of women can do before and after the use of cleaning, which shows that everyone's cleaning awareness is very in place.
So how exactly is the best way to clean them?
Alcohol and hot water are not desirable
Baidu, found a lot of experience is to tell you to use alcohol or hot water to disinfect.
In the above survey of cleaning toys, more than 60% of people choose to use hot water as well as alcohol to disinfect, and only nearly 20% of people will choose professional erotic cleaning fluid to disinfect.
Let's start with hot water.
Most bacteria can be killed by boiling water at about 100 degrees Celsius, but there are still many bacteria that we do not recognize are still alive, and to use hot water to disinfect your toys, you need to first understand the material of your toys.
Take the mainstream erotic toys material as an example:
ABS is a synthetic resin, is a very wide range of thermoplastic engineering plastics, the material is relatively hard, generally do erotic toys shells and jumping eggs, ABS itself is very safe, but the temperature exceeds 60 ° C, the molecular structure will change, seepage of acrylonitrile, this material is highly toxic, and generally in order to make the toys more beautiful and nice to look at, it will be in a layer of thermoplastic film plated on the ABS, this layer of film encountered at high temperatures may be It is not recommended to sterilize the toys with boiling water.
TPE is also called thermoplastic elastomer, can be done very soft, with the muscle elasticity of a real person, some airplane cups, locking sperm ring often use this material, this material is also not hot water disinfection of toys, material decay will occur, greatly reducing the life of the toy at the same time affect your health.
Silicone (including the top of the platinum curing silicone), single molecule structure is safe and reliable, slightly harder than the TPE material, the most important thing is that all the materials in the most secure, but also the mainstream of the market materials, silicone can be sterilized in boiling hot water, but I personally recommend that the time should not be more than two minutes. After all, it is a rubber material, will produce aging phenomenon.
Alcohol is corrosive, prolonged use will make the erotic toys material chemical reaction, so it is not recommended to use alcohol to disinfect the toys, if you use it, please also apply alcohol as soon as possible after rinsing with water.
Correct Cleaning Steps
The cleaning of erotic toys is divided into two parts: cleaning and disinfection. Cleaning can only make the toys clean off the stains on the surface of the toys, but in order to kill the bacteria on it, it must go through the disinfection step!
Step 1: Remove the batteries
No matter what kind of toys must be used before and after the use of a cleaning, cleaning, please take out the battery first, long time not to forget to take out the battery, rechargeable products with waterproof plugs on the cover of the waterproof plugs, if not, try to avoid charging port cleaning.
Step 2: Apply cleaning solution
Please use mild shower gel or professional cleaning solution to apply on the toys, rub the toys with your hands, and gently give your little cutie a bubble bath. ps: if it is an airplane cup commonly used by boys, don't turn the inner cavity outward, and rinse it directly to the faucet.
If the fairy wand has grooves or lines, always remember to wash these dead ends, you can use cotton swabs or cotton pads to wipe carefully, but never use a toothbrush or brush to clean! (On the one hand, the brush is clean or not, on the other hand, it is easy to damage the toy.
Step 3: Rinse the foam
Under running tap water, rinse all the foam from the toy until there is some dryness from rubbing.
Step 4: wipe clean
Use a clean towel or use a non-linting paper towel (such as facial tissue, kitchen paper) with a press to suck, or air dry can be, (note that never use general paper towels, so as to avoid residual confetti caused by bacterial growth)
If the product has lines or grooves, use a folded towel, etc. to gently wipe and scrub these grooves at 90 degrees, so as not to leave bacteria on the surface of the appliance.
Step 5: Sterilize toys
The first few steps can clean the stains and human body fluids on the toys, but there are more invisible bacteria left on the surface of the toys, which can not be eliminated just by the shower gel and other products, you need to sanitize the toys, it is best to use professional erotic toys disinfectant spray, you can also use the Drip Dew disinfectant hand sanitizer and other cleaning.
How to use the erotic toy disinfectant spray:
The use of disinfectant spray is also very simple, spray the disinfectant spray directly on the toys, especially the parts that touch the body, and then you can store it after spraying.
If you are preparing to use it, please leave it for 2-3 minutes in order to allow the disinfectant to completely destroy the germs, and then just use it again. You should develop good user habits and disinfect your toys once before and after play use.
Step 6: Store in a cool place
After spraying the disinfectant spray can be put directly into the storage bag, placed in a cool and ventilated place, prohibited in the sun, so as not to cause deformation and bursting of the situation.
Toys use maintenance TIPS
Long-term non-use, to remove the battery
Toys maintenance in fact and other daily small appliances are not different, for example, in a long time not to use, be sure to remove the battery, so as not to ooze corrosive liquids run to the skin of the skin will corrode, especially vaginal or anal mucous membrane orientation.
Rechargeable products although do not have to remove the battery, but in the case of long time not to use will also lead to lithium batteries in the ionic vitality decline, reduce the battery charge, so rechargeable toys of the correct maintenance method is at least one to two times a month, to ensure the vitality of the battery.
Toys with batteries should not be completely submerged in water.
If the toy is powered by #7 or #5 batteries, there are some similar waterproof ring settings for life waterproofing. If it is completely submerged in water, the water may enter the battery compartment along the seams, resulting in poor contact after rusting. For the crevices, you can use a damp cloth to wipe them down. By the way, the good thing about these toys is that you can get high anytime and anywhere without worrying about running out of power in the middle of the day, and it is recommended to use rechargeable electricity.
Use with condoms
Although there are millions of erotic toys, when it comes to materials, they can be categorized into two main types: porous materials and non-porous materials. Non-porous material refers to the kind of surface can not penetrate the material of bacteria, common non-porous materials are glass, silicone, stainless steel, porous materials are hard plastics, artificial skin, synthetic rubber, nylon and so on this kind of material, easy to adsorb bacteria. Generally in the toy box, instructions are introduced. For porous material toys, even after washing, it is difficult to achieve complete sterility, so if necessary, as far as possible with the use of condoms.
