The Ultimate Guide to Cleaning and Maintenance Sex
Cleaning and maintaining your sex doll torso is actually pretty easy. With the right tools and expertise, you can do it efficiently and in minutes!
Different sex toy materials may require different care methods. So be sure to check the packaging of your sex toy, check the cleaning manual and storage instructions. Nonetheless, we made this guide applicable to sex toys made of TPE and silicone materials.
The importance of cleaning sex toys
Proper hygiene and disease prevention are the main reasons for cleaning sex toys. According to Men’s Health, reusing sex toys without washing semen can lead to skin and yeast infections. Sex toys can also lead to urinary tract infections (UTIs) and even sexually transmitted infections (STIs) if they are shared, according to Healthline.
Even more so with sex dolls. Bacteria thrive in warm, humid and protein-rich environments. The temperature of the sex doll’s hole and semen creates the perfect conditions for bacteria to grow.
In addition, extending the life of the sex doll trunk is the second reason for the maintenance of the sex doll. Rough or improper cleaning of your sex doll can speed up the dressing process, especially a low-quality doll. Besides cleanliness, proper storage of sex dolls is key to maintaining their quality.
When should you wash disposable dolls, and how often?
Sex education expert Lisa Finn said that while washing your sex toys before use is a recommendation, washing them afterwards is also necessary.
Many guides claim that you should clean disposable dolls every 2 weeks or 14 days, which is an oddly arbitrary time period. One of the reasons behind this is to reduce wear and tear on toys.
On the other hand, we think how often you clean sex dolls depends a lot on how often you use them. So, if you use it once a week, you have to wash it once a week. Consistent with many sex experts, we cannot wash your sex doll immediately after each use.
In order to avoid frequent cleaning damage to sex dolls, please buy sex dolls made of high-quality materials. Check out our collection of top sex doll torsos. Nonetheless, clean it as carefully and gently as possible. Don’t compromise on cleaning, as this is more important and more expensive than replacing your sex doll torso.
The main points of the sex doll maintenance kit
We have mentioned many times that you need to use gentle and appropriate materials to clean your sex doll. This will not only prevent damage to your sex doll, but also ensure that your sex doll is indeed sterilized.
With that in mind, we’ve listed below the basic cleaning materials that any respectable sex doll torso owner should have.
- Antibacterial/ neutral soap
- Non-abrasive sponge
- Vaginal irrigator/ douche
- Soft drying cloth
- Talcum powder
How to Clean a Sex Doll – Step by Step Guide
Step 1: Wet with water.
Basically, washing your sex doll is like washing your body in the shower. Put your sex doll in a tub or container where you can submerge it in warm water. You can also choose to rinse with running water in the shower. Make sure the water is not too hot to damage the material.
Step 2: Wash with antibacterial soap.
Once the sex doll is completely wet, pour a generous amount of antibacterial soap and foam on it. Then, use a soft sponge to gently scrub the body of the sex doll.
To clean the hole, pour soap into it. Then use your fingers or a smaller sponge to remove any dirt or dry bodily fluids. If you have a douche, use it to easily reach cracks.
Step 3: Rinse
Rinse off soap and any grime left in body and crevices until clean. Afterwards, you can check the smell to make sure the sex doll has been washed properly. If it still smells bad, go back to the previous steps and do it seriously. Make sure to rinse off cleaning products, as any residue can cause skin irritation.
Step 4: Dry with a cloth.
Wipe the whole body and nozzle with a soft cloth. The sex doll’s torso may not be completely dry even after a thorough wiping. So let it air dry completely for a while before moving on to the next step.
Step 5: Cover with talcum powder.
Once the sex doll is out of moisture, cover it with talcum powder or baby powder. Most TPE dolls require powder conditioning. This helps maintain the suppleness of the skin and improves the sticky feel after washing.
When you’re lazy and don’t want to clean up sex dolls
While we insist on the importance of properly cleaning sex dolls, we know that sometimes you may not have the time, or you may just be too lazy to do it. So for these cases, simply use a toy cleaner spray and remove it occasionally. You just spray it on the surface and wipe it off with a cloth.
Another trick you can do is to use a condom when having sex with a sex doll. This will help control your bodily fluids and prevent toys from becoming contaminated.
It’s not just a hack when you choose to share your sex doll with your sex partner, it’s actually a very good precaution. A study of sexually transmitted diseases found traces of human papillomavirus on sex toys after a full day of use and washing. Daily Health warns that sexually transmitted infections can still be transmitted even after careful cleaning of toys.
Proper maintenance and storage.
Sex doll accessories
Many owners of sex dolls like to dress up and decorate their sex dolls. Some people find this adds visual pleasure to their sex games. Since accessories can be an important part of a sex doll, choosing and maintaining them is just as important.
In terms of clothing, please determine the size of the doll to buy suitable clothes. Tight clothing may chafe the doll’s skin. Also, choose light-colored clothing to avoid staining the sex doll. For jewelry and other types of accessories, avoid sharp edges that can pierce the skin.
Don’t neglect cleaning accessories. You can easily throw doll clothes in the washer and dryer along with regular clothes. Using accessories, wipe or wash with soap and water depending on the material.
Use lubricating oil
As with other sex toys, lube is encouraged when using sex dolls. It makes the experience more pleasant and avoids any pain that causes friction.
When using sex toy lubricants made from TPE and silicone, choose a water-based lubricant. Do not use silicone-based lubricants, as they will corrode silicone sex dolls.
Dark clothes can easily stain your sex doll. Spilling colored beverages (like wine or juice) can also cause staining. Typically, most stains can be removed by washing the sex doll with soap and water. But if not, you can use common paint solvents or mold release agents. Pour the solvent on the stained surface, let it marinate for about 1 minute, then wipe with a cotton pad or soft cloth.
Store it properly
The storage of your doll will depend on its size, so please allow considerable space for your specific doll. Wherever you choose to store your sex doll, make sure it’s cool and dry. Especially silicone and TPE sex dolls as they are sensitive to temperature.
Where you store your sex dolls can also make a difference. We recommend you lay it flat. Avoid putting it in places where the joints (armpits, knees, elbows) are stressed as they are more likely to break. some things you shouldn’t do
Now that we’ve told you the basics of caring for your sex doll, we’re going to give you some things you shouldn’t do to avoid damaging your sex doll and ruining your fun.
Don’t delay cleaning your love doll. If you can’t clean with soap and water, use a sex toy cleaning spray, something is better than nothing. Once microbes contaminate your sex doll, it’s nearly useless.
Do not immerse sex dolls with electronic components in water. Including sex dolls with built-in vibrators and more.
Don’t store your sex doll in tight, dark clothing, as this will undoubtedly lead to staining.
When your sex dolls get wet, don’t put them away. No matter how thoroughly you wash with soap and water, dampness encourages bacteria to grow in the pantry. This will also make it easier for dirt and lint to stick to your sex doll.
Do not dry with a hairdryer after washing. This may melt from the skin.
Do not apply too much pressure when washing and drying the doll, as it may stretch and wear the skin.
Efforts to clean and care for your sex doll will protect you and your partner from easily avoidable illnesses and complications. What’s more, it will save you huge costs on repairing or replacing your sex doll. Once all those worries are forgotten, nothing can kill the buzz of having sex with your love doll.
Cleaning your sex doll torso is part of being a sex doll owner. Just as practical hygiene is part of promoting sexual health.
