Cleaning your flesh light regularly will prevent unpleasant smells and the growth of bacteria. This will also make the toy feel more pleasurable and extend its lifespan.
To clean a Fleshlight, start by rinsing the sleeve and case with warm water. Then wash the sleeve with mild antibacterial soap or the specially formulated Fleshlight cleaner.
Silicone Foam Cleaners
There are several silicone foam cleaners on the market that are specifically formulated for sex toys. These are gentle enough to not damage the delicate material of a flesh light, and many are also anti-bacterial. Some even have a mild, pleasant fragrance and some have special additives that help to keep the toy smelling fresh. These types of cleaners are a great choice for cleaning a fleshlight because they can get into all the nooks and crannies of the toy, making sure that everything is clean and hygienic.
Before you use a cleanser make sure your fleshlight is completely dry. If it isn’t dry, bacteria can grow easily and you’ll end up with a disgusting smell and sticky feeling. If you want to avoid using soap, it’s best to use a cornstarch powder instead. This will absorb any excess moisture and leave your Fleshlight nice and dry.
To clean your Fleshlight, first pull the sleeve away from the rim of the case and pull upward, rolling it up like you would a pair of socks. Next, wash the case with warm water and a bit of soap, such as liquid dish washing soap, hand soap, or body soap. Once you’ve rinsed the soap off, dry the case thoroughly and let the sleeve and caps dry as well.
Mild Antibacterial Soap
You can go the expensive route and purchase a special foam cleaner specifically formulated for Fleshlights, but you can also save money by using something most people have in their kitchens – mild antibacterial soap. This type of soap is gentle enough to clean the inside of a Fleshlight case, and it can also be used to wash the sleeve. Just be sure to rinse the sleeve thoroughly and make sure all soap residue is completely removed before drying it.
Do not use soaps containing bleach or any other harsh chemicals, as they can deteriorate the sleeve’s skin-like material over time. Similarly, don’t use hand sanitizer or other types of sanitizer as these products contain alcohol that can degrade the flesh light’s insert material.
Start by removing the sleeve from its case and washing it in warm water. Be sure to wash all areas of the sleeve and the case, including all nooks and crannies where lube might collect during playtime. Rinse the sleeve and case with warm water until they are completely free of soap residue. Be sure to dry the sleeve and case thoroughly before reassembling them. Moisture is a breeding ground for bacteria, so it’s important to keep your sex toy as dry as possible. You can do this by air drying the sleeve and case on a towel or paper towels (not fabric towels, which could contain fibers). Once your sleeve and case are completely dry, you can put it back together in its case.
Fleshlights have a lot of little nooks and crannies that make them easy for dirt, germs, and even mold to hide in. This makes cleaning them one of the most important things you can do for your sex toy. Luckily, there are a variety of different products that can help you keep your flesh light clean and hygienic.
When choosing a cleaning product, be sure to consider the price and availability as well as the effectiveness of the product. Some more expensive products may be worth the extra cost if they offer anti-bacterial properties or come with special fragrances that will help to scent and freshen your flesh light.
Another important thing to keep in mind is how long it will take for your fleshlight to dry. This is especially true if you have a more dense or rough texture level. You should aim to clean and sanitize your fleshlight as soon as possible after use and be sure to let it dry completely before using it again.
In order to properly clean your fleshlight, you will need a mild antibacterial soap or specially formulated Fleshlight cleaner, warm water, a towel, and isopropyl alcohol. Be sure to remove your sleeve from the case and wash it inside and out to ensure that all areas are cleaned thoroughly. Once you are done washing, it is time to dry the sleeve and its case.
The case, end caps and inserts of a Fleshlight are easy enough to wipe down post-use with a rag or washcloth that’s been soaked in hot water and wrung out well. The flesh part of the toy, however, is a fussier affair. The material it’s made of is mineral oil, and it won’t play nicely with most cleaning products.
To make sure your flesh light is hygienic, you need to use a cleaning product specifically designed for it. Fleshlight offers their own solution called Fleshwash, which is an effective, non-toxic way to keep your toy clean. If you’d rather save some money and go the DIY route, you can also use cornstarch to do the job.
When using Fleshwash or other specialized toy cleaners, always follow the instructions on the label. Most of these products contain surfactants, which reduce the surface tension of liquids so that they can penetrate deeper into the toy and remove any debris. They may also include other chemicals that break down oils, or antimicrobial agents to prevent the growth of unwanted bacteria.
When washing a Fleshlight, be sure to pay special attention to the deep textures and gaps in the toy’s design. You don’t want to leave any residue behind, as that can cause bacteria to grow and erode the insert’s compound. Once you’ve cleaned your Fleshlight, be sure to let it dry completely before putting it back in its case.
