Clean your sextoy! So you can enjoy your sextoy for a long time!

You have bought a sex toy and now the question arises, how do you take care of it so that it serves you well for a long time?

It is important that your toy does not become a bacterial catapult and that the material and "you" are not damaged by aggressive cleaners. It's hard to believe, but viruses and bacteria from infectious diseases stick to your toys for a long time.


Cleaning sextoys with all-purpose household cleaner?

Although the name implies that the  toy cleaner is suitable for all purposes, please use it only to clean your home. The often aggressive ingredients may kill some germs etc., but the residues could also fight your sensitive mucous membranes.


And how do you do it right?

First of all, you should check the manufacturer's instructions for use to see what the cleaning recommendation is, as each material has different requirements. Most toys can be rinsed under warm water and with mild soap, but be careful if electronics are included. Not all toys are waterproof. But to be really safe, the toy should also be sprayed with a disinfectant cleaner. clean’n’safe is perfect with only one minute of exposure time. The spray is specially designed for materials used for sex toys and does not contain alcohol.

You can also boil non-electric toys made of glass, silicone and stainless steel, the only question is whether the effort is worth it if there clean’n’safe, which is highly effective against viruses (e.g. Corona-Virus Sars-CoV-2AIDS-causing HIV), herpes, hepatitis bacteria (e.g. chlamydia) and fungi.

Porous materials such as wood should only be cleaned with soap under warm water – disinfection is particularly important here, as nasty pathogens can nestle in the pores.



The toy is cleaned and now it should not be thrown loveless somewhere. It's best to store it in a fabric bag that doesn't fluff. And each toy should have its own bag, because if different materials come together, they may react with each other. That's why you shouldn't store a toy in a plastic container.


Tip for lazy people, but not for environmentally conscious ones

To save yourself the "Sextoy clean" you can also pull a condom over the toys. So the condom protects the toy and you only have to pull it off and everything is clean. But there is also garbage!



Special caution is required with toys that are used anal and vaginal. It is best to have your own toy for each area. If you use one toy for everything, you have to clean the sex toy even more thoroughly.

As they say so nicely: first the pleasure and then the work. Fun aside – please clean thoroughly with the sextoy so that there is no nasty surprise.
