how to clean silicone dildos
Silicone is a great material for dildos. It is resilient, retains body heat, and because it is non-porous, it's easy to clean. The high cost of materials as well as the fact that your silicone dildo is hand-made by a small manufacturer means that you pay a little more- but it is well worth it! Your silicone toy can lead a long and happy life if it's properly taken care of. It can be cleaned with mild soap and water; it can be boiled in water for up to five minutes; and you can even put it in the top rack of a dishwasher.
If you're sharing your toy, or using it both vaginally and anally, put a condom on it to minimize the risk of transmitting infections. Silicone can be damaged by tearing. Even a small cut will quickly turn into a large tear, so keep your toy away from sharp objects, teeth, etc. If you're using your toy in a harness, take extra care to make sure it's not forced through the opening. Silicone-based lubricants should be avoided as they will damage your silicone toy.
