Join me in this series as we explore the fascinating history of dildos, its variety of uses, the different types including materials, as well as how to choose and use a dildo for your own sexual pleasure in the following Guide to Dildos and Pleasurable Penetration.

Care and Cleaning of Silicone Dildos

With any sex toy material, you will want to make sure you thoroughly wash it before and after every use.  Dildos can be washed in mild soap and water, or with an antibacterial sex toy cleaner and lint-free cloth.  Keep in mind, even though you use an antibacterial cleaner, your toy will not be totally sterilized.

To sterilize silicone toys, you can soak them for 3-5 minutes in boiling water. Bring water to a boil, insert the toy, and remove from burner. Let stand in water up to 5 minutes.  Remove and lay to dry.  You can also sterilize your silicone dildo with 10% bleach to water solution as well.

Another method for sanitizing your silicone dildo is to pop them on the top rack of your dishwasher for about 5 minutes by themselves on the Sanitize cycle, and they are ready to go.  Make sure you don’t use any detergent as this could cause irritation to your genitals.

Only use water-based lubricants with silicone sex toys.  Some hybrid water-based and silicone lube blends can be used with silicone toys, but you should test a small area first, like the base of the toy.  Silicone lubes can cause a reaction and can cause your toys to get sticky or melt.

Store your silicone toy separately in a plastic bag or a sex toy storage box.  This keeps them lint free and they can’t get cross-contaminated with other toys.

What Type of Lube Can I Use with Silicone Dildos?

When purchasing sex toys that are designed for penetration, you will also want to invest in a good quality lubricant. 

Silicone dildos should only be used with a good quality water-based lubricant. Do not use silicone lubricants with silicone toys as it could ruin the silicone of the toy.
