A Guide to Silicone Sex Toys and How to Handle Them by Shimmer

by Shimmer 🌞 on October 20, 2023

Why, hello there! Shimmer here, ready to give you the low-down on keeping your silicone sex toys in tip-top shape. Whether you're new to silicone sex toys or a seasoned explorer, I've got the 411 on selecting, cleaning, lubing, and storing those delightful companions of yours.


Choosing the Stars: Picking High-Quality Silicone Sex Toys

So, you've decided to add a new silicone member to your intergalactic pleasure squad! When selecting a silicone sex toy, it's crucial to ensure you're getting the crème de la crème. Look for the magic words—“100% silicone.”  This is your guarantee of a toy that's not only out-of-this-world pleasurable but also safe.


Why "100% Silicone"?

100% silicone toys are kind of magical. They are non-porous, meaning they won't harbor unwanted guests like bacteria. Plus, they're body-safe, hypoallergenic, and free from funky chemicals. 


It’s no mistake that 100% silicone is the A-lister in the sex toy world– it ensures a silky, safe, and sensational experience every time. It’s FDA approved pleasure, baby!

Cleaning Rituals: Keeping the Cosmic Vibes Hygienic

Alright, so you've just had a stellar time with your silicone sidekick, and now it's cleanup time. Fear not, dear friends! Cleaning your silicone sex toy is a breeze.


1. Soap and Water

Start with a gentle soap-and-water dance. Use a mild, fragrance-free soap and warm water to cleanse away any residual remnants of your good time. Make sure to pay extra attention to those nooks and crannies!


 2. Toy-Friendly Wipes

If you're an explorer on the go, consider using antibacterial toy- friendly wipes. Simply follow whatever instructions are on the wipes, and you’re good to go!


3. Antibacterial Toy Cleansing Spray

Another option is a toy spray. Just make sure that the one you’re using says it’s safe to be used on silicone. If you go for this option, definitely opt for something specifically designed for sex toys, and follow the instructions– I’m all for improvising, but not here!


 4. Boil in Water to Disinfect

Between uses, I always recommend boiling your silicone sex toy in water for a few minutes after you’ve cleaned them to get that extra level of security. Just don’t boil whatever electronics may be in there as well!


Lubricants: The Slippery Slope to Silicone Sexiness

Now, let's talk about lubricants—the unsung heroes of the pleasure universe. When it comes to silicone sex toys, not all lubes are compatible. Opt for water-based or hybrid lubes to keep your toy in good shape.


What to Avoid: Say No to Silicone-on-Silicone

I know, I know, aren’t we praising silicone here? Well, yes, but if you use a silicone based lube with a silicone toy, it could break down the materials and make your toys not last as long as they otherwise could. So, save the silicone lube for a different scenario!


Water-Based Wonders

Water-based lubes are your go-to companions for silicone toys. They're compatible, gentle, and won't harm the delicate balance of your favorite pleasure pal. Just remember to reapply as needed to keep the cosmic vibes flowing.


Hybrid Magic

If you crave a bit more slip and slide, go for a hybrid lube. These cosmic concoctions blend water and silicone for a silky-smooth experience without compromising your silicone sidekick's integrity. Silicone based lubes don’t have enough silicone in them to mess with your toy; they only have just the right amount to add some extra slippery goodness.


Storing Your Silicone Sex Toy

Last but not least, let's talk about storing your silicone sensation. Treat your toy like the VIP it is, and it will reward you with years of pleasure.


Closets and Storage Bags

Store your silicone treasure in a cool, dry place away from debris. Consider a dedicated toy bag or pouch to maintain that fresh-out-of-the-box feeling.


Separate Spaces

If you have a collection of toy companions, keep them in separate enough spaces that they aren’t directly touching. The materials may not play well together, and you wouldn't want any drama, would you? Silicone in particular appreciates its own space.


There you have it—the earthly guide to silicone sex toy care, by yours truly. May your adventures be ever pleasurable, and your silicone sidekicks stay in pristine condition.

Happy exploring!
