Washing your toys and sheets.....how often

usmcwife99 usmcwife99
I know its probably a good idea to wash some of your toys everytime before and after you use them. Not to meantion change the bed sheets everytime after you have sex.


Ok, but thats in a perfect world(or so I think). I know ive failed many times of washing my toys everytime. Same with my bed sheets ile lay there at night and my one dog were like whatever spot my partner had a orgasm on/by/dripped a little. Needless to say the sheets arent necisarly dirty as in you can see it but its still there for dogs to smell. Not to the human nose thoe.

We wash the toys after EVERY use. The sheets? We have sex once or twice a DAY. I'm NOT changing sheets THAT often! Once a week or so is fine. If there's a mess, then I change them sooner.

Dogs are not allowed on the bed OR in the bedroom.

I always wash my toys right after using them. Not doing so seems... really squicky and unhygienic to me. :S

As for bedsheets, my boyfriend is a total germaphobe. He prefers new sheets after we have sex; he requires new sheets if it was particularly sweaty sex. I, on the other hand, really couldn't care less.

I wash my sheets about every month after my period cause they get really gross after I go on the rage. So about once a month for sheets.

I do not wash the sheets after sex. No friggin' way, I'd need to wash them too often. That's whacko. I wash them every few weeks, and that's reasonable then.

Toys are washed before and after use. Most times.

We wash the sheets once a week unless we happen to make a really big mess, which is pretty rare - but if we *had* to then we would wash them sooner.

We wash the toys before and after. We probably would not wash them before if we did not have cats. Hair tends to stick to a lot of the toys though. In general, I think washing a toy when you're done with it is enough you have a special reason. (Love those cats, but come on now! lol)

We wash our toys after every use. Whoever's toy it is (male/female) is the one to wash it. Our sheets get washed regularly - regardless of sex.

I wash our toys before and after use. We have a cat as well but the real problem is the dust. We live in the desert so no matter how much we dust the house or how tight the toys are wrapped they still get dirty.

We wash the bedding on a regular basis, regardless of sex. Others have said it best, that is Way too much washing

It depends on the toy and how it's stored as to whether it's before and after or just after for us.
Sheets? Saturday is sheet day

Depending on the toy, I will sometimes wash before, always after. Some toys I will occasionally sanitize with whatever I can sanitize it with. I'm not super careful (it's just me and Him using them), but I like to keep things pretty clean.

The bed...I should probably clean it more often. If we've been especially active, I will wash once a week, and if we're in a dry spell, less frequently.

Our house has been described as being so clean that you could lick the floors, but it's still not clean enough for me (No, I don't have OCD!). I am pretty sensitive to the smells of unwashed sheets and clothes, my partner, thankfully, not so much.

I think I have an itch to wash some bedclothes now! I just got more detergent, too!

I guess I dont know how to vote........

When ime in my period Ile wash my toys each time.

If I use it anally I wash it each time.

If there used only vaginally and not in my period I wash them every 2-5 times

The bed sheets, well they gets washed wenever I think about it. I dont think about it often thoe, so probaly every month.

I didn't see the votes for who washes the toys. I am always awake after sex, so more often I do it. But, often enough, it's whoever goes into the bathroom first after sex. We both have to pee right away, so who ever gets up first washes the toys.

Once in a great while it gets put off until morning, but that is usually if we "lose" one, like the lost butt plug last week. I couldn't find it when I washed the rest of the toys, mentioned it to him, after we made love again the next morning, and he found it on the floor. He washed it WELL after that.

I was thinking about the sheets while doing laundry today. I'd have to 1)get up after evening sex, 2)strip bed with LARGE sleeping man in it, 3)put clean sheets on bed, with LARGE sleeping man in it 4)go into basement and start laundry late at night 5)and THEN do the whole thing again in the morning, when we have sex again. I don't have that much time, energy or money for detergent or fabric softener, and think of the WATER we'd waste. Once a week is great.

Other- I insist that they are clean.

We use a shirt or something under us to keep things clean. Very rare that we have to change the sheets this way. The weather has more to do with changing the sheets than sex. HAHA

I wash my toys after every use and i wash bed sheets once a month. I have a Liberator throe so no worries about me dirtying anything.

Besides I shower at night, so there should be no reason for my bed to be dirty except from natural sweating--no dirt though.

I wash the toys after every use and I wash sheets every week or so, that depends of course on how wild be get in there! lol

I wash the toys after every use definitely and before using sometimes. Certain toys I don't feel the need to wash before hand, but I always wash them after no matter what. If it was used solo then whoever used it would be cleaning their own stuff up, if we use it together I normally wash them I guess because I know where they all go. Our bedroom lately has looked like a toy store has exploded after sex with dildos and vibes all over the place (we've been trying new things lol) and I gather them all up and wash them and then toss them back onto the bed from the bathroom door and then once they're all washed I go back and put them all in their boxes. If Mike was doing that he'd be there forever trying to figure out what goes where.

Sheets I do no change each time we have sex, my water bill would be enormous if I did that! I usually change sheets every week or two. Ideally I do it once a week but well, I have three kids so not many things go ideally regarding housework!

I rinse the toys before use if they need it, I clean them after every use though. It's rare I could just leave them by the bed so I wouldn't want to put them away without cleaning..The sheets? Maybe once a month unless they happen to have a stain from my husband spilling food or drink on them

I wash toys after every use, it keeps them safe and the material will last longer. Plus, you don't want germs growing on it. Keep in mind, bacteria can multiply by billions in only a few hours.

That aside, my bedding gets washed often anyway because I have 3 dogs that sleep with me.

Toys after use, before use only if needed. Bedding weekly or as needed.

I figure a little dust or lint is OK for me anally, there's plenty of junk up there anyway, my wife tends to be a bit cleaner for vaginal use (makes sense).

Short funny story. This morning My Man and I were going at it, and he almost always pulls out to Come, or comes somewhere other than during PIV sex. (It's our form of birth control.) He pulled out, and did this funny little wiggle, and I'm thinking "What the hell is he doing?" (because he usually just dumps it on my belly or neck, which I like, but often some just......dribbles around) And he says, "I didn't want to mess up the clean sheets."

Aw, so cute. I put clean, crisp, snow white high thread count sheets on the bed yesterday, and it was just SO nice for him just not to NOTICE, but to not want to get semen on them the first day. I told him it wasn't necessary (I made a big enough wet spot myself) but it was just so sweet of him.

After several decades of living together, you really appreciate little things like that.

HE NOTICED! And cared. AW.

toys are cleaned after every use. The sheets...well, we throw an old comforter on the bed, so nothing gets on the satin sheets. It gets washed as needed. We have a separate comforter for sleeping.

We almost always have a "date night" on Saturdays. So we tend to wash the toys that night and the bedding on Sundays.

I got into the habit of washing toys before, (even though most are in zip lock bags) and after use. But sometimes I will just grab an extra toy during solo play w/o washing it first.

Toys are washed before and after each use and on random times without even being used.

The sheets...meh not so often.

Always wash the toys after almost immediately. Sheets washed once a week or so depending on activity. Counters washed after also

If I haven't used the toy in awhile then I use it before use. However, I tend to get stuck on favorites for awhile so there's a good chance that it has been used within the last day or two and washed after that use.

Sheets get washed when they've lost that feeling that they're clean or sooner. Or maybe that feeling is my imagination. Either way it's every weekish.

We usually just wash the toys right after using them, though if it is something that's been sitting for a while, I'll clean it off before use.

My sheets get washed every week to every two weeks, depending on how busy I am. If we get a small spot on them right after I have washed them, I just get a damp wash cloth with some laundry soap and spot-clean them.

Although I wash my toys after every use, it takes me entirely too long to wash sheets. I don't sleep on them every night, we rotate rooms, but still, a very long time...

I always wash toys before and after use. Toys we share are sterilized after use. The sheets don't get washed after every sex act, but more than once every few weeks.
