How to clean a dildo?

i recently bought a normal, no bells/whistles dildo. I washed it with water and hand soap, but when I dried it little fluff pieces just stuck to it. I don't want to leave it wet and get mold or something. what do I do?

If I understand what you mean by "little fluff pieces just stuck to it," that sounds like static electricity. The fluff should fall off when it discharges.

Put some rubbing alcohol on a paper towel and wipe it clean.

We clean our toys with hot water and an organic antibacterial soap, then spray and wipe down again with this:

The main ingredients are alcohol and witch hazel. You could just buy 91% isopropyl alcohol and witch hazel for less than $2 each, and mix a 1:1 solution in a spray bottle and use that. (Incidentally, that's also a good solution to spray on makeup and makeup brushes to keep your cosmetics sterilized.) Then dry with a paper towel so you don't have to deal with the towel fluff issue.

Depends on the material the Dildo is made of. Most of the time, soap and water will do it. I always recommend putting a condom over the toy anyway. Its a clean surface.

Silicone: Soap and Water. Silicone toys can also be boiled or run through the dishwasher.

Super Skin: a very light amount of isopropyl alcohol. Do NOT use soap!

PVC/Plastic: Soap and Water. They are porous so you need to disinfect every now and then with isopropyl alcohol.

Jelly/Latex: Very porous. Only clean them with soap and water. There is no way to sterilized them because they cannot be boiled and alcohol degrades the surface. Best to put a condom over them in order to always have a clean surface.

Glass or Steel: Same as Silicone.

But again... condom on them regardless of material. Its just easier and a clean guarantee.

You can get wipes from online shops such as Ann Summers and LoveHoney. I'm not sure what the difference is but they are specially designed just for sex toys
