Taking Care of your Adult Sex Toys
With just a little bit of Cleaning, Maintenance, and Proper Care, you and your favorite sex toys can have a long and enjoyable partnership.
Cleaning and Maintaining your Sex Toy
Most adult sex toys are incredibly easy to clean. Just wet a clean towel in warm soapy water and wipe the sex toys off – taking care not to get the control area or battery compartment wet. If you use your sex toy anally, you must clean it very thoroughly using antibacterial soap or rubbing alcohol if possible as soon as possible after each use. There are also special cleaners formulated to safely work with adult sex toys that you could use instead. Be sure to clean your sex toy soon after use. Never put off cleaning your sex toy until the next day.
After cleaning, dry the sex toy with a soft, clean cloth. If your sex toy is made from cyberskin, you should apply the special powder to maintain the sex toy’s unique feeling. After thoroughly drying your adult sex toy, you should wrap it in a dry cloth and store it in a cool, dry place.
These are the recommended cleaning methods for the most popular sex toy materials:
Plastic – soap and water, rubbing alcohol, sex toy cleaner
Latex – mild soap and water, sex toy cleaner
Jelly – mild soap and water, sex toy cleaner
Cyberskin – mild soap and water, Cyberskin cleaner, sex toy cleaner, talcum powder
Silicon – soap and water, sex toy cleaner

Replacing Sex Toy Batteries
When you wear out your batteries, replacing them is as simple as a trip to your nearest drug store. Most sex toys take AA or AAA batteries, but some sex toys take common watch batteries. Be sure to take note what battery you need when you remove them from the sex toys. The batteries on most models can be removed by unscrewing the base of the sex toys or removing the panel on the remote control.
Long-term Adult Sex Toy Storage
Batteries contain highly corrosive chemicals, and it’s not recommended that you leave them inside your sex toy for extended periods of time. If you don’t plan to use your sex toy for longer than a week, you should remove the batteries, wrap your sex toy in a dry towel and store it in a cool, dry place.
