How to Care for Your Dildo

So you've found your perfect dildo. Perhaps it's the crystal beauty you finally dared to try. But now you're wondering how to keep the relationship going strong over the long term. After all, you've dedicated some time and money to your new playmate, and you want it to last! Nothing is worse than pulling out your toy chest for a little one-on-one time, only to find your toys have are dirty and unclean.

Glass dildos are the easiest to take care of. Crystal dildos are nonporous, so you'll never have to worry about anything growing on them. To clean them thoroughly, throw them in the dishwasher or use a sex toy cleaner solution. Just spray it on, wipe it off, and you're done!

Sex toy cleaners are also perfect for silicone, jelly and other types of dildos. You'll want to pay special attention to your jelly buddies. They tend to attract bacteria and need to be cleaned thoroughly before and after each use. Silicone versions are easier. You can either boil or wash them with a solution of bleach and water.

Proper Storage of Your Dildo

Another step you can take to keep your dildos and sex toys looking shiny and new is to keep them in a safe place where they won't be stepped on (or chewed on by the dog!) and where the temperature is consistent. Sex toy storage bags and "toy boxes" are available or you can wrap them in a mismatched pillowcase, shoe travel bag, or purse sleeper bag.

Another way to keep clean-up simple is by using condoms each time you use your dildo. Just slip it on, pull it off when you're down, and throw the condom away.
