Vibrators and other sex toys are precious allies to guide us to seventh heaven . Whether they cause clitoral stimulation like a wand or whether they are rabbit -type toys, these jewels of technology are delicate . It is therefore crucial to maintain your sex toy before and after use . Properly cleaning and caring for your vibrator will prolong its life and your enjoyment . In this article, we answer all your questions about cleaning your vibro and pampering it.

Why take good care of your sex toys?

Whether it brings you to orgasm alone or with your partner, adult toys can also transmit STIs . The hygiene of your favorite vibrator is then essential to continue to please you in complete safety.

Bacteria such as e-coli, staphylococcus aureus, lactobacillus acidophilus or even candida albicans love to lodge on surfaces in contact with the clitoris and vagina. They proliferate and then cause not-so-sexy itching. 🦠

On the side of STIs, our toys can also be sources of infection between partners.

Cleaning your sex toy in the minutes following your moment of pleasure prevents bacteria and STIs from proliferating or settling more permanently on its surface.

Getting a vibrator is always an investment, because their price is often high. Beyond hygiene and health, taking care of these products extends their lifespan. 😍

Now on to our tips!

How to clean your vibrators?

Silicone vibrator

Silicone is an extra material for vibrators , because it provides a very soft touch while being of high quality . Pure silicone is the ultimate material for rechargeable toys because it is molded evenly over the stimulation mechanism. Choosing this material was a no-brainer in the design of Coco , our vibration-lined suction clitoral stimulator. 💗

To clean your silicone toy, you can simply do it with hot water and a little antibacterial soap . Be sure to rinse well then let air dry.

Metal vibrator

Like silicone, metal is easy to clean and maintain . So you can wash it with lukewarm water and neutral soap . For drying, opt for a clean cloth or an absorbent cloth.

If your vibrator is not waterproof , use a damp towel rather than running it under running water. Whether it is recharged by USB or by batteries, Powerful recommends that you be very careful when washing , because not all electric toys are waterproof.💦

Plastic, latex or jelly vibrator

Plastic, latex or jelly are porous materials which reduces cleaning options. In their case, we recommend a gentle cleaning in warm water with a mild antibacterial soap. 🧼

Non-porous toys tend to be of lower quality and have a shorter lifespan . To maintain optimal hygiene when playing with your partner, remember to put a condom on the device .

Many brands now offer cleaner formulas for sex toys . Some products offer an antibacterial and disinfectant effect for better intimate hygiene. These accessories are not essential for the proper maintenance of your pleasure device, but can be practical to save time and be discreet.

Extend the life of your sex toy

Battery

If your sex toy is rechargeable by USB or on the mains, here are some tips to ensure that its battery lasts over time. 🔋

  • let the battery drain completely before charging it again
  • charge your devices fully before using them again, patience is the mother of a virtue
  • store your power cables in a safe place so as not to damage it (the pocket of your toy is a good place not to lose it)

If it is battery operated, remove them after each use to maximize their longevity.

Properly store your toy

Like any product in contact with the body, the storage of your sex toys must be optimal. Store them away from dust and light for some more fragile models.

We therefore forget the tote drawer where lubricants, handcuffs, wand, rabbit, clitoral stimulator, anal and other love devices rub shoulders. 🧰

In addition to collecting dirt from the environment, these toys don't live well in communities . Different materials interact with each other. For example, jelly will tend to melt over time and can damage various products. ❌

We recommend keeping them in fabric pouches or storing them in separate boxes . Avoid plastic containers that disintegrate into microparticles and infiltrate your porous toys.

Congratulations, you are now certified in vibro cleaning and maintenance ! 🎓You have the keys to take care of your toys for safe use and hours of fun.
