It’s almost inevitable that if you’re a sex toy enthusiast, you’re going to have to eventually deal with the lingering smells that come along with it. Some of the materials toys are made out of STINK and seem to hang around no matter what you do. But, never fear! Here’s my tips and tricks on how to get smell out of sex toys.

First off, for the porous materials out there like TPR, jelly and rubber toys, they are very difficult to deep clean and the smell just won’t go away. The best thing you can do in this situation is to put the toy into a sealed bag and Penis Rings let the toy sit with a deodorizer like baking soda, activated charcoal, NagChampa incense or odor absorber beads.

On the other hand, nonporous materials like silicone are much easier to clean and the smells usually come right off with proper care and maintenance. Soap and water, toy cleaners, or even boiling water will do the trick and once the surface is wiped down with a damp cloth, you should be all set.

On the flip side, if there’s still a lingering smell, I’d suggest giving the toy a sandpaper treatment. That is, taking very fine grit sandpaper and wiping down the surface of your toy. Just be sure not to press down too hard so you don’t scratch or damage the toy in any way.

If none of those tricks work, then for one last Hail Mary, you can try freezing the toy for a few days. This will help kill any bacteria or mold that might be living on the surface, thus eliminating any remnant odors.

Finally, if even that doesn’t work, you might want to consider replacing it, as sex toy smells can be almost impossible to get out and can be an contamination hazard.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably tried all kinds of store bought solutions like Febreeze and scented sprays but to no avail. And, that’s basically because those products were never meant for sex toys in the first place.

I think the best way to handle those stink-a-licious toys is to prevent the smell in the first place. Make sure you’re regularly cleaning your toys after every use and if you can, buy toys made from nonporous materials like silicone, glass, stainless steel, aluminum and wood instead. Then, you should be free and sex dolls clear of any troublesome smells.

More importantly, don’t be scared to talk to your toy maker if you have any concerns about odors and products that could help. Many of the toy manufacturers offer cleaning solutions and helpful tips and tricks on their websites.

The bottom line is that, like anything else, odor removal is all about prevention. Taking proper care of your toys and using the right cleaning solutions will go a long way in keeping those stink bugs away.

Also, using a condom over the toy is a great way to protect the toy’s texture and overall life. Changing the condom every time you use the toy even if it’s in the same session is an excellent way to practice safe sex and extend the life of your toys.

If you’d like to get really into it, you can try rubbing alcohol, boiling water, or a 10 percent bleach solution. Just make sure you do a quick clean of the toy after, with a damp cloth, and be sure to avoid any bleach products that are scented as they can actually cause more odor!

In conclusion, cleaning your toys regularly and using proper cleaning solutions and techniques can go a long way in keeping those stinky smells away. Understand the materials of the toys, care for them correctly and you should never have to worry about obnoxious odors again.
