How to Store Your Sex Toys

Sex toys are safe for bodily use, but they can be quite reactive when put next to alike or opposing materials. Therefore, it is vital to be careful when storing your sex toys.

If you mix your sex toys (particularly silicone, rubber, latex, realistic feel and jelly sex toys) you may soon discover that they start to look melted or slightly misshapen.

We can’t overstate how important it is that you store your sex toys separately if you don’t want a nasty surprise the next time you reach for your favorite toy.

Proper storage of sex toys is an often-overlooked issue for even those of us who have a treasure trove of them. We figure we can just throw them in a nightstand or a cardboard box under the bed. But if we want to protect our investments and make sure our toys keep on giving for as long as possible, then the cleaning and storage of them is paramount.

First of all, figure out what each toy is made of…is it silicone…rubber…acrylic? Some material like cyber-flesh has special instructions and need to be completely dry and sprinkled with cornstarch for storing.

Regardless, you should be sure that none of your toys are touching skin to skin when you put them away because some materials react off of one another and that can leave you with quite a strange-looking gadget the next time you reach for it.

Once you use your toy, wash it right away. Putting it away with even a little bodily fluid on it is not healthy for anyone and it can be bad for the toy in the long run. Again, wash your toy depending on the material.

(Or if you want to be safe in all instances, just use one of our specially-designed toy cleaners that work like a charm on all materials.)

Next remove your batteries if applicable. You may want to keep them adjacent so it’s convenient when you’re ready to use it again, but not in the toy itself. This avoids accidental turn-ons and potential corrosion. Treat your toys like you do your herbs – keep them in a cool, dry and dark place. (And make sure you keep some condoms near them for play with friends 0 always be prepared.)

Worst-case scenario – some toys can be wrapped in plastic wrap for storage. But there are many much better options. There are anti-microbial storage bags available that are perfect for storing individual vibes and dildos.

If you have more than a couple of toys, you may want to invest in a proper toy box. There are models available that are even lockable so others can’t access your goodies.

Some people complain that their sex toys just don’t last long enough and yes, every sex toy does have a lifespan of it’s own, but many times our toys end up in the toy graveyard because of the way we have or haven’t treated them. Consider these tips as a nice life insurance policy on your well loved erotic equipment.
