How To Clean Your Sex Toy

Continuing on with the spring theme, I’d like to talk about cleaning. Specifically, how best to clean your toy to maximize both your enjoyment and the lifetime of your objet de plaisir. It may not be the most exciting topic, however learning how to clean your toy properly is a wortwhile investment. There’s nothing worse than getting ayeast infection that could have been avoided….


Nearly all toys (silicone toys, glass, stainless steel) can be cleaned with antibacterial, fragrance-free soap. As these materials are non-porous, this simple method should be sufficient. Be careful not to submerge your toy if it’s battery operated unless it's waterproof. Lay flat to dry on a clean surface like a paper towel.

However, if you want to be extra careful, you can also boil battery-free silicone toys like butt plugs as well as glass, and stainless steel toys.  The top-shelf of the dishwashers is also a great option for these types of toys.

Leather and vinyl goods like our Aslan harnesses can simply be wiped down with isopropyl alcohol.

We recommend using a condom with your jelly toy. Because jelly toys are porous, we recommend this approach to minimize potential bacterial growth.

Whatever the type of material, we strongly encourage you to wash your toy  as soon as you finish using it. As tempting as it may be to just throw it under your bed in your post-orgasmic glow, resist.  

Or if you know you’re the type of person who  just can’t be bothered to clean your toy post sex, then consider the Joy Boxx, the world’s first hygienic storage system designed to handle pleasure products before, during and after use. Joy Boxx in made of antimicrobial plastic and has a removable tray for toys waiting to be washed. Discreet ventilation help prevent microbe growth.

Happy playing!
