Just because you're in to dirty sex, doesn't mean you can't be clean about the whole thing...

Whether you own one rampant rabbit or have a whole red room of pain just like our friend Christian Grey – sex toys touch our most intimate areas, so they need a good wash (and no, dunking it in the penis beaker doesn't count).

Sex toys can harbour all sorts of harmful bacteria that if not cleaned properly, can lead to infection including BV, thrush, cystitis and pelvic inflammatory disease.

How do you clean vibrators?


Most vibrators, whatever they are made of can be cleaned with good old warm water and soap, reports the sexperts at Babeland. Just remember to use the gentle, fragrance-free kind.

If they are battery operated or electrical – remember to not submerge the technical bits. It would be a bad day if your rabbit dies. No, don't, just don't think about it.

TOP TIP Removing the batteries after use can make vibrators easier to clean, and makes them last longer.

Can you boil vibrators?


Pyrex, silicone or stainless steel toys you can boil them for 10 minutes or run them on a quick wash through the dishwasher. Obviously not at your mum's house.

Glass products should be hand washed with warm soapy water.

A warning on jelly rubber


Anything that is made of a jelly rubber type material, or any sex toys that are porous, may keep bacteria lurking in hidden depths that you can not sanitise. To be safe, pop a condom on them every time you use.

What about leather sex toys?


Leather, faux leather and hard plastic will wipe clean with a damp, soapy cloth or with leather cleaner. Do not soak leather. Use a 70% isopropyl rubbing alcohol to thoroughly disinfect.

How should you store your sex toys?


Properly dry everything after cleaning so they don't get grow bacteria or mildew (yikes!). Store in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight.
