How to Clean a Sex Doll

Sex dolls are all the rage. With new high-tech features being invented to make them more realistic and make them more customizable, there’s no better time to buy a sex doll.

Luckily for you, ToyWithMe has your back!

We’ve created this blog post to provide you with all the information you need about cleaning your sex doll, ensuring you can keep your doll in optimal condition and use it for a long time to come.

General cleaning

Obviously, the most important part of cleaning your sex doll is cleaning the intimate areas. However, the rest of your doll requires some attention too. Although it might not require as regular cleaning, it’s still an important part of sex doll maintenance. Below are a few things you should do regularly, as well as some tips on how to keep your sex doll clean.

Wipe it down

Wiping your sex doll down with a sex toy wipe after every use is the best way to ensure optimal hygiene. If you don’t have any wipes created specifically for cleaning toys, you can use warm water with a gentle soap. Even if certain parts of the sex doll haven’t come into contact with any intimate areas, it’s still a good idea to clean them regularly as hands and surfaces can also transfer dirt and bacteria.

Store well

Where you keep your sex doll when it’s not being used can have a big impact on how long it lasts. Not only is it important to store the toy away from direct sunlight, but it’s also important to cover it to prevent dust and dirt from collecting on it. Dust can be a nightmare, especially when accidentally mixed with lube or bodily fluids, so it’s important to keep your doll free of dust when not in use.

Don’t overdo it

Cleaning is important and it helps to prevent infections and other nasty side effects that can occur when toys aren’t cleaned properly. However, it’s also important not to overdo it, for example, by using cleaning agents that aren’t right for the material the doll is made of. Using harsh cleaning agents or scrubbing roughly may damage the doll and prevent it from lasting as long as.

Now that we’ve covered some of the basics when it comes to cleaning and storage, it’s time to get into the step-by-step cleaning guide.

1. Take it apart

Most sex dolls have removable male masturbators for mouths/vaginas/anuses, or a removable dildo. This helps make the insertable areas easier to clean, so it’s important to take the entire doll apart before you start cleaning and pay special attention to the areas that are most heavily used and/or those that come in contact with your penis/vagina.

2. Rinse

The next step is to rinse the insertable parts off, washing away any lube or bodily fluids that might be on/in it. By rinsing it off before cleaning, it’s easier for the cleaning agent to get into the corners and other difficult-to-reach areas.

3. Wash

Now it’s time to wash and disinfect the toy. Always try to use a specially designed toy cleaner to ensure no damage is done while cleaning. If you’re not sure what kind of cleaning agent to use, check the company’s website or the instruction manual to see what is recommended by them.

4. DRY!

Now that you’ve gently but thoroughly washed the insertable part of your sex doll, it’s important to dry them thoroughly before reassembling it. Make sure you towel dry everything thoroughly and then leave it to air-dry overnight. It is vital that everything is completely dry before your doll is reassembled to prevent mold from forming or bacteria from spreading.

5. Put it back together

When everything has been cleaned and dried, you can reassemble your doll ready for use next time. Make sure that your doll is stored away from direct sunlight and in a storage bag that prevents it from attracting dust.
