After you are intoxicated with the happiness after orgasm, how to clean the sex toys that just brought you happiness may be the last thing you worry about. Actually, this is a big problem.
"Cleaning sex toys help prevent infection because bacteria will survive if they are not cleaned regularly," said Alexandra Fine, CEO, and co-founder of Dame Products.
To avoid these infections, you should clean sex toys regularly every time you use them.
"When buying a toy, you have to figure out its material, because its material and motor will determine how it is washed," said cleaning expert Jolly Kerr. "Usually, this information will be on the packaging, but if not, please consult a salesperson or conduct a product search online," Kerr said.
Porous and non-porous materials. Avoid using porous toys, even after cleaning, porous toys may accumulate bacteria inside the toy. This includes materials such as TPE or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). On the other hand, non-porous toys are safer and include materials such as medical-grade silicone, glass, medical-grade stainless steel, and Pyrex plastic. "Fine said.
Look for "medical grade" materials. Finn said: "Something is "safe for the human body "does not mean that it is medical grade, nor does it mean that it is not "FDA approved "." Believe it or not, in some cases, sex toys will be approved as food by FDA. What you want to see is the "medical grade". Fine said "It is the highest quality and safest product," .
