Avoid infections. Hygiene is important, even when you're having fun.
Keeping your sex toy clean is extremely important, as bacteria will remain on the surface unless properly sanitized. Sex Toys should be regularly cleaned before and after each use. If a sex toy is to be used with multiple partners place a condom over it to facilitate cleaning. Glass and silicone sex toys can be sterilized in boiling water or in the dishwasher.
Battery operated sex toys should never have water come in contact with the motor, so use care when cleaning. Antibacterial soap on a wet washcloth is good for battery-operated sex toys; however using a cleaner made specifically for cleaning sex toys will prolong the life of your new friend. Regular soap contains harsh detergents that over time can degrade the surface of the sex toy.
