You’ve had a stressful day and when you get home, you decide some self-love will make it all better. You rummage through your bedside cabinet and finally find your vibe, covered in dust and goodness knows what else. Even worse, the batteries are dead and you can’t find the charging cable. This happens to everyone which is why it’s so important to store your sex toys properly.
In this post, we will look at the do’s and don’ts of sex toy cleaning and storage so you always have your favourite toy ready and waiting.
Clean Your Toys Before You Put Them Away
You should clean your sex toys after every use. There is really no such thing as too clean when it comes to your toys, bearing in mind they touch your most sensitive areas. If you’re unsure whether you cleaned your toy after your last use, play it safe and wash it again.
Consider the material of your toy before cleaning. If it has a battery or a motor, don’t put it in water, just use a damp cloth. Most toys just need soap and water with a good scrub and for superior hygiene, use a toy cleaner which is antibacterial and will make the job a lot easier. If your toy is made of Glass or Pyrex, you can either boil it or put it in the dishwasher. Once your toy has been cleaned, dry it ready for storing.
Bag It Or Box It
Most of us chuck our sex toys straight into the bedside drawer as soon as we’re done with them. Before storing your toys, it’s best to cover them first. Toy bags are great for keeping your toys clean, discreet and in perfect condition.
Lot’s of toys come with a bag included. They prevent dust, dirt and even pet hair getting on your toys meaning it’s always clean and ready when you need it. For even more discretion you could store your toys in a lockable box, guaranteed to keep prying eyes away.
Take Care Of Your Batteries And Cables
While cleaning and safe storage of your sex toys are essential, so too is the storage of your batteries and cables.
Removing the batteries from your toy between uses helps the batteries last longer, so it’s a great habit to get into. With your wired and rechargeable vibrators, there is no standard connector so store the cables together with their toy to avoid killing the mood while you try and find it later. You should also avoid leaving your toy plugged in all the time as this is a massive battery killer.
After your post-orgasm cuddle, clean and store your sex toys properly to keep them clean, ready and in great condition. You’ll be glad you did when you’re ready for your next self-love session or naked wrestle.
