Information on materials and cleaning:
 
1.JELLY:
  • Made of translucent material, usually soft and flexible
  • Can contain latex, PVC, and other vinyl’s
  • Surface is porous, so bacteria and viruses can get trapped
  • Can get sticky, so sometimes it picks up lint and dust
  • Clean well with soap and warm water, or a good quality toy cleaner is preferred (made specifically for adult toys)
  • It is impossible to keep jelly toys perfectly clean, so a condom on them helps keep and maintain the toy
 
2.PLASTIC:
  • Made of hard material, can get brittle over time
  • Not made of porous material, but some plastic toys have seams that can trap bacteria and viruses, so they need to be scrubbed properly with a brush
  • Can be cleaned with soap and warm water, or Toy Cleaner
  • For added safety it is better to use a condom on plastic toys
 
3.RUBBER:
  • Made of rather firm material( natural rubber or PVC ), but gets more flexible over time
  • If you leave rubber toys lying in the sun, you’ll notice they get softer
  • Rubber is porous, so bacteria and viruses can stay stuck in these toys
  • Clean with Toy Cleaner
 
4.LATEX:
  • Latex is a common material for sex toys, but make sure you aren’t allergic to latex before using a latex toy!
  • Surface is porous so bateria and viruses can get trapped in these toys
  • Clean with good quality toy cleaner
  • Oil based lubricants on latex toys will make the material break down-use water-based or silicone lubricant available in store
 
5.CYBERSKIN:
  • Made of a mixture of PVC and silicone, soft and supple to the touch
  • Wash with soap and warm water, or toy cleaner- surface is porous, so you’ll need to guard against bacteria and germs.
  • After washing, sprinkle with cornstarch to keep the toys feeling silky smooth
 
6.SILICONE:
  • Made of long-lasting material that can retain body heat
  • More expensive than other toys
  • Surface is non-porous and hypo-allergenic (won’t irritate the skin) and cannot trap bacteria or germs
  • Clean well with toy cleaner
  • Can be boiled in water or washed in the dishwasher as long as the toy has no mechanical parts
