Caring for Your Dildo

How to Care for Your Dildo

So you've found your perfect dildo--perhaps 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 passion 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 an icky smell, have melted or are covered in mildew!

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

Sex toy cleaners are also perfect for silicone, jelly or 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--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 didloes 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 an mis-matched pillowcase, shoe travel bag or purse sleepr bag.

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