How to Keep Your Sex Toys Clean - Shopping & Things

Sex toys have become like trusted companions in many of our intimate adventures, bringing added pleasure and excitement to the bedroom. But just like any good friend, they deserve a little TLC to keep them in tip-top shape. Enter the world of sex toy hygiene! Proper cleaning isn't just about maintaining your toys; it's also about safeguarding your health and well-being. 

Follow these 8 easy steps to keep yourself safe & healthy, and to ensure your favourite pleasure companion stays squeaky clean and buzzing like new:

Step 1: Know Your Toy's Material

First things first - get acquainted with your toy's material. Whether it's silicone, glass, metal, plastic, or rubber, each material has its own cleaning requirements to avoid any mishaps. Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions for the best cleaning practices. All of My Pleasure's Vibrators are made from premium quality, body-safe silicone.

Step 2: Clean Hands, Happy Toy

Before diving into the cleaning process, give those hands a good wash with warm water and mild soap. We don't want any unwanted guests like dirt or germs crashing the party!

Step 3: Test & Power Down

If you have not used your toy yet, or are washing it for the first time, test that it is working order before you clean it to ensure it's not faulty. Responsible sex toy sellers will not be able to accept returns on toys that have been opened & cleaned. Read our Returns Policy for more information. Once you are sure there are no manufacturing faults with your toy, make sure it's turned off and disconnected from any electrical outlets before starting the cleaning process. Safety first, ladies! 

Step 4: Rinse with Warm Water

Give your toy a gentle rinse with warm water to remove any surface debris.

Step 5: Use Gentle Soap

Reach for a mild, unscented soap and apply it to a clean cloth or your hands. Harsh chemicals are a no-go here – we're all about keeping it gentle.

Step 6: Scrub-a-Dub-Dub

Gently scrub your toy with the soapy cloth, paying extra attention to any textured areas. Just be careful around any electrical bits – they're not fans of water.

Step 7: Rinse Again

Rinse your toy thoroughly with warm water to ensure all the soap is gone. We want to leave no trace behind!

Step 8: Dry and Store Like a Pro

After your cleaning session, let your toy air dry completely. If needed, give it a gentle pat dry with a clean, lint-free cloth or paper towel. Store it in a clean, dry spot, preferably in its own storage bag or box. And remember, keep it away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures to avoid any mishaps.


Taking care of your sex toys isn't just a chore – it's a crucial part of keeping your intimate moments safe and enjoyable. Follow these steps and stick to the manufacturer's guidelines to ensure your toys stay in top-notch condition for many adventures to come. Different toys may have different needs, so always refer to the instructions for the best results. With proper hygiene practices, you can enjoy your toys with confidence and peace of mind. Cheers to happy, clean toys and even happier playtime!
