So how *do* you clean your sex toys?
The big thing to know is whether the sex toy or tool is porous or non-porous.
Non-porous materials include medical grade silicone, borosilicate glass, soda-lime glass, metal, ABS plastic (a type of hard plastic often used in dildos and vibrators) and gold—these do not allow bacteria into the toy itself. Porous materials include rubber, latex, elastomer, jellies, and Sensafirm and UR3 (two materials that approximate the feel of skin). Porous materials contain tiny holes that can harbor nasties, including bacteria.
Here at The Lore of Change we only stock toys made of medical grade or defined as 100% silicone (so none of the hybrids that have names such as UltraSKYN), borosilicate glass, metal or ABS plastic. This means we can confidently certify that all our toys are body safe (just look out for our logo of the bottom and feather). We do stock accessories that aren't made of the these products so strongly recommend keeping them away form your intimate areas.
We do know that when you're in the moment best practice may not happen, so ensure that you use anti-bacterial cleaner and leave your accessories to dry for at least 24hours.
Happy playing ;)
