What Is Sexual Health: Sex Toy Cleaning

Cleaning your sex toys properly is the only non-negotiable when it comes to pleasure… because well, obviously it’s coming into contact with our most intimate areas! But fear not, to look after your toys all you need is an anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner, warm water, and a clean dry towel.

To clean, give your toys a quick rinse underwater and then apply your toy cleaner:

Using a Foaming Sex Toy Cleaner:

Pump a generous amount of foam onto the toy, and clean between your hands under running water as if washing your hands, until all foam is removed and rinsed off.

Using a Spray Sex Toy Cleaner:

Spray the toy with cleaner, and let sit for the amount of time required (usually under a minute), then follow by rinsing the toy and focusing on any stubborn areas.

Using a UV Steralisation Bag:

Rinse toys under water and remove any residue. Completely dry with a clean towel, and then place in to the UV steraliser. Close the device and ensure it is properly close, and then power on. This cycle usually last 3 minutes, and remove when finished.


Let your toys air dry in a clean space, or if you’re strapped for time, wipe them with a clean dry towel, however, ensure toys are completely dry before storing them away
