Agreed! I was expecting something along the lines of melting or something. I was defiantly surprised.

How very strange! Self repairing toys??? Could be the oil just softened the material and then it rehardened? Makes me wonder what would happen if the toys were relubed and left in the sun...

Now that the whole thing is done, can you put them in motor oil and test it for us? lol

Well, stick around I did do some test that is real close.

Well, the testing must go on.

Next up, Silicone lube. Same procedure, same time frame. I should mention that Rubber/Sil-A-Gel is suitable for silicone lube. So I did not test this material. Also, UR3 sometimes comes made with Sil-A-Gel. So, if the package has Sil-A-Gel listed, you can use Silicone lubes. This additive has become more used as of late, so I always recommend reading the package that it comes in. There are times when a toys material has been changed without the manufacturer informing the retailer about the change. When in doubt, go with a water based lube.

So first up, Silicone.



You can not see anything in the picture and neither could I. It did feel like the lube was still there, even after a couple of washings. One with the toy cleaner and one with dish soap. So the lube defiantly adhered to the material, but there was no damage to be seen. I also tried a different brand of lube, but I got the same results. On both counts, after numerous washing in friggin hot water and dish soap, the material went back to its original, like new feel. It has been said that some Silicone materials will work with some Silicone lubes, but that usually has to do with premium products. One of the lubes I used is a very “So cheap I don't even use it” brand so I am at a loss with this one.

Question/comments?

But even if it rehardened- how did it "remember" the shape to bounce back to?

That would have to do with the tension of the toy and the molecular structure actually...I'm not a scientist so I dunno how to exactly explain it but resting in it's origional packaging might have had a lot to do with it.

Even with the veins on the rubber one, though? I'm puzzled. But that's all right.

Could it be that we are passing on information that is based on manufacturing proceedures and materials that are years old? We have been very vocal about our love of silicone lubes and how they ruin toys...and I have had a few VERY expensive toys melted with pits and sticky slime after using silicone lube with them. This was a few years ago though and things could have changed!

Next up TPR Silicone.



Here we can see some slight deformation It has left a welt on the material. Although with this one, instead of a bump it was sunken into the material. Kind of weird. It was hard to see but it was there.

UR3 and Cyberskin


Much of the same for these two, welts in different areas of the toy. I found it strange that the welts did not cover the whole toy, but at least there was something.


Whats really screwy, after setting for two days...The damage was gone. I am soooo at a loss.
