After all the pleasure and fun with your vibrator comes the most important task of making sure that it is thoroughly cleaned up and safely stored for the next use.

One thing with vibrators is that they go inside or come into closer contact with the most sensitive parts of your body and for this reason, they should be well cleaned before and after each use to ensure that you do not put yourself at a risk of getting any infections.

The first step to understanding how to clean your vibrator is, the materials used to make it as this one factor dictates everything around the subject matter.

Guideline to Cleaning Your Vibrator

vibrator cleaningFirst off, vibrators are not hard to clean, and it’s never complicated. It will take you just a few minutes to get it all clean and ready for the next use.
If you can answer these questions then cleaning your vibrator won’t be a huge problem.

  • What material is it made from?
  • Is it electric/battery operated?
  • Is it porous or nonporous?
  • How does it react to super-hot water, say if you were to boil it?
  • Is it waterproof?
  • What are sex toy cleaners recommended for its type?

If you have all this information, the questions on how to clean a rabbit vibrator, how to clean a bullet vibrator, or how to clean a silicone vibrator become easy to answer. If you prefer going the economical way, just use some warm water and unscented soap to give your vibrator a thorough wash then wipe it dry with a clean towel then store it safely.

Alternatively, one can opt to use the right sex toy cleaner for the type of material used in your vibrator. One thing with using water and soap is that how clean it gets depends on how thorough you can clean it.

If your vibrator features a more realistically built design, you should always give more attention to each of its parts. For a rabbit vibrator in this category, you spend more time under the head plus behind the ears as these are the parts that bacteria will most likely build up.

Do and Don’t – Vibrator Cleaning Help Desk

Doing Point 1:  First, you should understand your vibrator fully in terms of how it’s operated, is it battery or electric operated, is the material that it is made of porous or nonporous, is it dishwasher safe or not, can it be cleaned with hot water or not, is it waterproof?

Anything else will follow from the above understanding. If your vibrator is battery operated, be sure to take them off after use and only return them when you want to use your vibrator. This will not only save you the charge but will also prevent corroding it with time.

Doing Point 2:  Second, always use fragrance-free soaps when cleaning your vibrator as this is the only sure way to avoiding irritation.

Doing Point 3:  Third, for Pyrex, glass and stainless steel vibrators, you can put them in the dishwasher or boil them for some few minutes as long as you can do it without tempering with the motor area because all vibrators are either battery or electric operated.

Doing Point 4:  Fourth, when using porous vibrators, i.e. those made of hard plastic, elastomer, Cyberskin, nylon, jelly rubber among others, be sure to use a condom whether you are sharing it or not. This is because you will never be totally sure that your vibrator is perfectly clean and bacteria free as these materials are more absorbent thus hard to perfectly clean.

Doing Point 5:  Fifth, find the right lube to use with your vibrator, based on the type of material it is made of.

Doing Point 6:  Lastly, store your vibrator in a clean, dark and well-aerated area, and you should ensure that it is totally dry when storing it. Find the right cloth bag for your vibrator for proper storage.

Don’t Point 1: Do not submerge your electric/battery operated vibrators in water if they are not waterproof. For these, just wipe them with some warm and soapy washcloth, and you will be good to go.

Don’t Point 2:  Do not let your used vibrator come into contact with your clean vibrators or other toys.

Why should you keep vibrator clean?

Well, isn’t it just gross to leave your used vibrator lying around uncleaned? This is the first reason why most people will clean their vibrators, but there are more serious reasons why you should. To begin with, as I have mentioned in the introduction, the vibrator will be going inside you. Thus, you don’t want to carry all the dirt from the previous use and even more that it might have collected from the storage area inside your body.

Also, apart from the normal dirt, the worst case scenario could be it has bacteria. Just as with anything else, if you do not clean your vibrator at all or at least well, it will end up having bacteria that will eventually find their way in your body the moment you start using it.

So in short, as long as you are using a vibrator, you have no option than to keep it clean or otherwise risk having all sorts of infections from time to time and this could even be worse if you are sharing it with a partner(s).
