    I'm a big fan of soap and warm water to clean my sex toys. I don't worry about full sterilization because I don't share my toys and they rarely get so messy that I worry they're not clean enough with soap.

    Be careful with the dishwasher because it can leave soap residue on your toy, and it could cause an infection!

    I'm not that big of a fan of dildos myself, but If you really want to experiment, then why not find a partner and use sex toys instead? I had a boyfriend that wanted to stay imminent and in touch even when we had to go separate ways for a couple of days at times. So it wasn't that bad of an idea, and when he sent me a remote control vibrator, I was excited to use it with him. It kept our relationship alive even when we did not have that much sex.

    I was surprised to learn that as well. I probably wouldn’t put my own sex toys in the dishwasher. My hubs doesn’t even want me to put the cat’s food dishes in there. Lol.

    Wait, how did I miss that part about the dishwasher??? Haha. I started seeing the recent comments mentioning it and I had to do a double-take. I don't even use my dishwasher but if I still had my dildo, I would probably use the dishwasher for that instead of washing actual dishes!

    That's so much more convenient than the soap and water approach. But I don't really care of dildos anyway so I got rid of mine a long time ago. Bullet vibes are more my jam. :-)

    Wednesday, I had no idea about the dishwasher trick - will for sure give that a try. I’ve only ever used castile soap and water to clean my sex toys. Dishwashers are great for sanitizing purposes.

    I'm really happy that soap and water gets the job done. I mean, I appreciate and understand the benefits of sex toy cleaners formulated for this purpose but at the end of the day, if I don't have to spend extra on something I can easily take care of with household items, I'll always opt for that.

    I've only been using bullet vibrators and I prefer the hard plastic kind because it's a breeze to clean and for me it feels better than the other materials. If I ever upgraded to something fancier I don't think I'd change the soap and water combo either.

    I'm good about cleaning my sex toys after each use (or my partner will do it for me if I end up passed out, haha). The only time I slip on the cleaning regimen is if I use it at night and immediately fall asleep. Obviously first thing in the morning I make sure to do extra scrubbing, dry it thoroughly and then double check that I didn't miss anything.

    You can never be too careful when it comes to things you're putting inside and around the lady parts!

    It’s actually safe to put them in the dishwasher. In a pinch, alcohol-free baby wipes are okay. Like when switching partners and really really not wanting to stop everything and head to the sink.
