Congratulations, you made the decision to purchase a vibrator.  If you care for it properly, a good vibrator can last a long time.  We’re going to take you through the proper care and maintenance of your new sex toy.

Cleaning Your Vibrator

The first order of business before you use your new sex toy is to clean it.  If your vibrator is the waterproof type, it can easily be cleaned with soap and warm water.  However, if the vibrator is not waterproof, you must be very careful to not immerse the vibrator in water.  You must be cautious and ensure no water gets near or in the battery compartment or the motor.   It is best to stay away from alcohol-based cleaners as they will dry out and damage vibrators made of rubber.

Ideally, the best solution is to use an Adult Toy Cleaner made specifically for your vibrator.  To properly clean your vibrator, ensure you clean all of the ridges and crevices.  Rather than towel dry your toy, it is better to let it air dry over night.  Never store your vibrator until it is completely dry.   

Condoms

Yes, we said condoms!  One of the easiest ways to keep your vibrator clean is to use a condom.  This is particularly true if you are sharing your vibrator with your partner.   Also, if you are using your sex toy for the vaginal area and the anal area, then using condoms is a must!  Use a fresh condom when changing from one body orifice to another.  After use, discard the condom and clean the vibrator thoroughly.

Keep a supply of condoms on hand so you are always ready to go.

Batteries

Another tip to give longevity to your sex toy is to remove the batteries and store them separately when you’re not using it.  There are two reasons for this.  First, it will prevent you from accidentally leaving the vibrator on, which could burn out the motor.  Secondly, removing the batteries will help prevent corrosion inside the vibrator leading to the death of the motor.

It’s a good idea to keep a supply of batteries on hand for your vibrator.  We carry a wide variety of batteries in our catalog.

Lubes

Using a personal lubricant will make most sex toys feel better.  Choose a water-based lube for most vibrators.  However, if your vibrator is a water-proof model, then you must select a silicone-based lube.  Petroleum-based lubes are only for use with a non-latex anal sex toy.  Petroleum ruins soft materials and it can irritate your vagina.

Our catalog has a great selection of personal lubricants to choose from.

Storage

You want your toys to stay clean and to last.  So please don’t just throw it under the bed or in a drawer between uses.  Clean it properly, take out the batteries and store it in an enclosed container.  There are many discreet storage bags made especially for sex toys.  Keep the storage bag in a dresser drawer or in a safe place in the closet.

We carry several beautiful storage bags in our catalog.

Keep it Working

Vibrators should be handled carefully.  Never drop your vibrator onto a hard surface.  If your toy is electric, never crimp, pull or bend the cord.  If your vibrator is waterproof, take care to dry around the cap to keep water out of the battery case.

Run your vibrator only 20 to 30 minutes at a time.  These motors are small and they need to cool down.  You don’t want your sex toy to overheat.  Even if you don’t overheat the motor, you may be reducing the life span.

A little care will ensure a long life for your new toy.
