How To Clean Your Silicone Sex Toys

A simple guide to help extend the life of your favourite sex toy and keep your downstairs healthy.

What’s your go-to routine post play? We bet it’s not running to the bathroom to wash your toys before packing them away.

But did you know it should be?

Sex toys end up in contact with some personal and sensitive parts of the body. Similar to how most people would never dream of eating off a dirty plate, using a vibrator or dildo that hasn’t been properly cleaned should also be unimaginable.

When we fail to clean our sex toys they become dusty, sticky and dirty – which long term will shorten their lifespan – and your attraction to using them for that matter. Even more seriously they can become a home for nasty bacteria which can lead to far more serious problems than just a case of “icky vibrator".


So what is “best practice” when it comes to cleaning silicone sex toys?

  1. Cleaning should take place before and after each use.
  2. Avoid any soaps or cleaning agents that contain oils. Oil based products are not friends with silicone products. Over time the oil will breakdown the silicone – it’s a no go!
  3. All Pleasure Pals are water resistant. This means water and a PH neutral soap will do the trick and keep your toys and body happy and healthy!
  4. Another option is to use a dedicated cleaning foam such as The Sidekick from That’s The Spot. Cleaning foams are great for a thorough clean that easily removes fluid and any dirt and grime from a toy’s surface. Bonus, they’re easy to use and affordable to buy.
  5. After washing your toy, use a lint-free cloth to dry your vibrator before having a play or storing it away for next time.
  6. Breathable, cotton storage bags are perfect for keeping sex toys clean in between each use. All That's The Spot Pleasure Pal vibrators come with a discreet cloth storage bag. Handy!
  7. The next time you’re in the mood for pleasure, remember to spritz your vibrator with foam toy cleaner and rinse, or wash your toy with water before and after the fun.
