How to Take Care of Your Vibrator

By this point, you are pretty well informed and dare I say, acquainted, with the benefits of incorporating a vibrator into your sex life. They are great for using on your own or with a partner and bring a lot of joy to a woman’s life. And as with anything that one loves in life and enjoys having, it’s important to take care of it in order to make the most out of it through time.

The first thing you should keep in mind should be kind of obvious but a lot of people tend to overlook it: cleaning. You should always clean them and wash them after each use in order to stop any bacterial growth and spreading of possible diseases. When you are done with the joyride wink*, wash it with some warm water and soap. Don’t use alcohol, if you want to take it further just use regular toy cleaner.

So yes, washing is important, but keeping them dry is also high on the priorities list.You know what humidity brings, right? Yes, mold and fungus and other horrible things you don’t want near your very special parts. That is why is so important to not only clean them properly, but to also make sure they are completely dry before storage them. And before I forget, this also prolongs the life of your toys, making the whole investment worthwhile.

The other thing you have to keep in mind is applying the right lubrication for your specific toy, because some lubricants can cause damage to your toy. Water bases lubricants are usually safe to use with most sex toys, while silicone based ones can cause harm to more “realistic toys”. On the other hand, oil based lubs usually damage sex toys and condoms, so it’s probably a good idea to leave them for purely sexual and unprotected coitus with your partner.In short, make sure with the makers what lubrications will work with your toy.

And since we are talking damage, you will want to check regularly for any cracks and splinters. Yes, as you can imagine it will be painful to use a toy that has any of the above.Jelly or rubber toys can rip, glass toys can chip and plastic toys can crack and splint. Ideally you should check for any damage before using, but I know that can’t always be the case, so every few months or weeks give them the once over to see if you need to replace your little gem.

Replacing a toy can be hard, but just as some other things in life, getting a new one may be necessary. And sometimes even if the toy is not broken, replacement may be necessary. As a general rule you will probably need to replace a toy after more or less a year of heavy use. Porous toys like those made out ofsilicone can have microscopic holes that are a breeding ground for bacteria and STD’s. And if you share your toy with different partners, you should be especially careful for that reason.

Another question a lot of people have is where they should storage them properly and that is a good question because the place you keep your toy can extend their life.If your toy is a battery operated one and you don’t use it that often, it’s a good idea to remove the batteries to prevent corrosion. Those silicone toys can attract dust and other dirty things you definitely don’t want, so it’s better to put them in a box to keep them away from filth. And glass toys are super delicate so you will want to hold them in safe place, away from any possible accidents and damages.

Now that you know how to keep your precious one (or precious ones, plural) in top shape, you will for sure get more mileage done out of them. Taking and dedicatinga bit of extra time to maintaining your toy will be the best in the long term. Think about it like dedicating time to a relationship so you can both continue to live happily ever after, wink*
