Steps to Clean Silicone Sex Toys
Here's the step-by-step process for cleaning silicone sex toys:
If it is possible to remove batteries or electronic components, please do so.
Rinse the toy with warm water to remove lubricants or body fluids from the toy's surface.
Apply a small amount of mild soap or sex toy cleaner to your hands or to a clean washcloth and work into a lather.
Gently wipe the toy down with a soapy washcloth or your hands, paying close attention to any areas with texture or cracks. Use cotton swab touch to clean tight places.

Dry the toy with a clean towel or let it air dry for a few minutes.

Some silicone sex toys without electronic components are dishwasher safe, or can be boiled for additional sanitization. Check the manufacturer's instructions or product descriptions to see if your toy is suitable for these methods.
Additional Tips and Ideas
