Tips for Sex Toy
Maintenance and Storage
Store batteries outside the vibrator; both the vibrator and the batteries will last longer. By removing batteries when the vibrator is not in use, you will also avoid accidentally leaving the vibrator on. Keep the working parts of the vibrator out of water to prevent corrosion of metal parts, unless you know it is waterproof. Clean it by wiping with a cloth moistened with warm water and anti-bacterial soap.
If there is a cord between the battery pack and the vibrator, do not tug on the cord. When inserting a toy that must be retrieved by its cord, please put it into a condom first; then simply retrieve it by pulling out the condom. Using a condom also ensures a clean surface to insert each time.
When storing your favorite device, make sure they are not touching each other. Use a cloth or piece of fabric to separate them so that the integrity of the material is not compromised.
Silicone retains body heat, is non-porous and one of the best materials available for a toy. Clean silicone toys with toy compatible cleansers and make sure they are dry before putting them away. A silicone toy that doesn’t contain a motor can be boiled or put in the top rack of a dishwasher to disinfect. Do not use silicone lube with a silicone toy or store your toy near other silicone toys. It will eventually cause the material to break down and shorten the life span of your toy.
