Also, I was thinking about turning this into an STP, but now that I have seen how much it picks up I dont think I can

I think it depends on how you use it. If you are holding it directly against your body, it is more of a concern than if you have a pouch in your pants for it. Try using a little dawn soap and water and see if that helps.

i heard soap was bad for mr. limpy. hm. i'll probably just use baby wipes on it if i decide to keep mine. as far as STP conversion, your risk is more bacteria around the urethra. don't just keep the spoon hanging around there. shake it off, waddle your urine away, and after you take a bath/shower and rinse off don't put the packer back on.

You can use isopropyl alcohol to clean it.

I haven't had mine "pick up" anything, so I wonder if it has to do with if it's coated in cornstarch or not or something.

As for STP, if you set it up so urine doesn't come in contact with the superskin itself, it shouldn't be an issue - and probably still not a huge one even if a bit does.

I just got my packer today and when I bought it I picked up special 'toy wipes'. I'm going to try one of those on a small portion of it before I fully clean it and if I see any damage, I'll switch to baby wipes.

I have heard that dusting it with corn starch or baby powder will help prevent it picking up fuss and stuff.

It should be perfectly sanitary as long as you keep it clean. All packers can eventually get dingy and need to be replaced.

I don't know where the "soap is bad for mr. limpy" rumor came from (I've heard it too), but my previous packer lasted six *years* thanks to once daily washing with soap and water, and my current one is at a year and seven months with only one tiny pinhole. Antibacterial soap makes it *reek*, but there's a simple solution to that - use regular soap/body wash. I wouldn't leave it in a pool of water indefinitely, and I've heard of packers being ruined by *swimming*, but that's from seawater /chlorine /freshwater bacteria, and long exposure times.

Wash it with a gentle soap or body wash that gets along with your skin, dry it well, and dust it lightly (very lightly!) with cornstarch. Then it won't pick up anything. I've actually had far *fewer* UTIs and yeast infections since I started packing, and I strongly suspect it's because packing makes me pay more attention to what's going on down there, and I've got a daily routine now that, by virtue of keeping my packer clean and non-sticky, keeps *me* cleaner by default.

Keeping it clean doesn't require paranoia levels of washing... just wash your junk when you wash the rest of you, and take the 15 seconds to dust it once it and your hands are dry.

The soap is bad for Mr. Limpy rumour came directly from the manufacturer.

Fleshlight (who makes Mr. Limpy and all things Superskin) specifically mentions in their care instructions, "Do NOT use soap to clean your Real Feel Superskin sleeve. For tough cleaning, we suggest using a little isopropyl alcohol. To maintain that soft feel, sprinkle a liberal amount of corn starch on the sleeve and shake off the excess powder. We do NOT recommend the use of talcum or baby powder." Granted this is written about their Fleshlight, but I'd assume it applies to all of their Superskin line.

Hm, that's interesting, thanks for that; I've never received those instructions with any of my packers so it never occurred to me to look it up. All I can say is I've washed mine daily for many years now and haven't noticed any degradation, weird smells, weird texture etc etc as a result. Antibacterial soap definitely does something funky to it - that's the only time I've ever had anything strange happen (offgassing, in that case), but regular soap's never caused me a problem.

I'm not, of course, saying that anyone should disobey the manufacturer's instructions if they're not comfortable doing so, but speaking for myself, I'd rather take my chances with soap than rubbing alcohol (without knowing what the reason is for the contraindication).

I also don't pack directly against the skin, and I might feel differently if I did.

It does pick up a lot of fuzz and hair but if you make sure to wash it with warm water and if necessary some non antibacterial soap you should be okay.

Just out of curiosity, how does one clean themselves after peeing D:. Like where does the excess that is clinging to one's parts go? This is assuming there isn't any toilet paper available to wipe the excess. Thanks!

You just have to wash it daily and then dust it with corn starch

You should wash it after each wear and dust it with cornstarch.
