O2 cut - any solutions? Advice?

SO, kind of in the same situation as this thread. I just got a Tantus Cush (OMG gorgeous) but circumstances necessitated me to stash it in my giant purse for a while, where it (devastatingly but unsurprisingly) got a small cut. Ugh! I haven't even used it yet and I am so, so sad. I boiled it to make sure it was clean but you can still see the little slit, it's maybe a quarter of a cm long. Does anyone have a magic way to fix this? Do I need to take extra care to clean it? I know silicone is non-porous, but how do I know that I'm really getting that little cut clean and it's not trapping anything? I don't really want to have to boil it every time. Sigh. It's so tragic when brand new toys get damaged.

Since silicone's cured with a catalyst, once it's cured it's cured, and you can't correct your cut.

But, it's nonporous all the way through, as you already know, so you should be fine. There'd be no need to boil it every time (unless you're particular enough about germs to want to with all your toys)---the surface of the little cut is no different from the surface of the rest of the dildo.

I really hate it when brand new anything gets damaged. The first scratch in a paint job, the first scuff on a shoe... even worse for a cut in silicone which was never supposed to happen!

Thanks so much, Antipova. I think it's more the "aw, dangit!" factor than any serious concern about germs - wish I could turn back time and somehow have stored it differently. Ah well. At least it's still all safe and fine for use - clearly the most important thing I've sure learned my lesson about the delicacy of O2 silicone, though.
