Butt plug smell

eatpills eatpills
Hi,

I just purchased the Ryder plug by Tantus along with a huge lot of unlubed condoms (to help with cleanup) for use together.

I gave the plug a try as soon as I received it and it feels great!

Removal was messy, as expected and hence the condoms. However, despite the use of a condom, the plug still retains an "ass" smell even after washing thoroughly -- I'm sure that I can get rid of the smell by soaking with a bleach solution (as per Tantus' instructions). My question is, how can I stop this from happening, or is this an inherent flaw with condoms?

Thanks!

Well, your pooper isn't necessarily a garden of roses, so putting anything in there is going to smell like ass for the most part. You really can't stop it from happening unless you try an enema first, with the proper kit and instructions. You can always boil the toy to try to get rid of the smell, too. I wouldn't use bleach, though, because bleach can cause irritation when used even though the instructions suggest to use it.

That's about all the advice I can give!

I wash my silicone plugs, then spray them with a mild bleach solution, let sit for awhile, rinse well, then let them air dry. Leaving them out for a few days will get rid of the scent, for the most part.

Also, a fresh vanilla bean in a mesh bag tucked into the drawer/case/wherever you store your toys helps.

I've never thought to try putting a pouch of scented stuff in my storage case! Learn something new every day.

I've tried every method under the sun to rid unwanted scents from anal toys. Hands down nothing beats boiling, in fact you'll even find it has a fresh sweet scent from the heated silicone, as well as be completely sterilized.

I have several silicone toys, and yes they can attain a scent. But I have found that if you clean it after use and air dry, it should be fine.

Now,if someone can help me rid some siligel toys of their "new toy stench", let me know. Mine are in the shed due to the stink.

Try with different soaps - I find some work much better than others at removing the trace chemicals that lead to smelly plugs. At a minimum try some different dishwashing soaps and shampoos.

For sili-gel toys I don't think there's anything you can do except for avoiding them in the future

Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions, it's much appreciated

So, I tried bleaching the plug (I use condoms, so irritation shouldn't be a big concern) and that failed to remove the smell. I guess my next tactic should be boiling, as suggested. Unfortunately, I don't have any pots that I would be comfortable using to boil something that has come out of my ass and would subsequently use to cook food with... Is pouring boiling water into a container with the plug sufficient?

I wouldn't be afraid to use a pot to boil it.. I mean, if it disinfects the toy, then the pot is disenfected as well , right? Of course wash the toy with soap first.

I haven never had a problem with my toys retaining a noticeable smell, so I find this a bit peculiar, especially since you used a condom....

Either way, good luck! And great choice for a new toy! The Ryder is great!

A nicely scented dryer sheet tucked into the storage area can do the same. Use one that has a light, fresh fragrance not a heavy cloying one.

As long as you have a roiling boil and you use it immediately it will do the same. A metal bowl will retain the heat of the water but use care cause it will get HOT. You could add some vanilla extract to the water and it might freshen the smell a bit, the juice of a lemon would do the same but vanilla won't harm the finish of the toy...not so sure about lemon juice.
Most pots are nonporous and made of metal so boiling the toy in the pan should be fine even if you plan to cook with it afterwards. A good shot of dishsoap in the pot will get rid of all bacteria, but I can understand being squeamish about the whole eating off something that had contact with your butt. Still in a purely medical standpoint the pot after washing in hot water and soap will be fine to cook with, it won't make you sick.
Hope this helps.

I have a friend that boils hers, I haven't tried boiling mine - I just washed it with hot hot water and soap. Mine does keep the smell - but I can't notice it at all unless I deliberately smell it, so it doesn't bother me. I do like the idea of storing it will a freshener though. Great idea!

The easiest way to completely get rid of that smell is to throw it in the dishwasher.

Boiling does wonders for the smell.

It doesn't have to be messy though, if removal is messy then I'd suggest you figure out what you have to do to ensure that there's no mess to begin with. I either have a toy in me or have anal sex every day and I've only had a mess a couple times.

instead of using a food cooking pot, try going to a target or a wal mart and purchasing a pot strictly for toys. they are inexpensive (around $10) and this gets rid of the food/toy cooking dilemma =)

Depending on the toy I do various things. First before anal play I always make sure that I am cleaned which can be done with a simple douche or soap/warm water solution. This critically helps with clean up.

The smell will always be there but can be taken away easily with cleaning directly after use, regardless of condom use. This depends following I want to add the disclaimer try *only* based on the proper cleaning of your toy. Some toys cannot be cleaned the same.

Boiling works great but is a great deal of work, I tend to give my toys a proper boiling bath twice a month if used. Make sure that you get a pot that you do not cook your spaghetti in. You will not ever want to do this. Make sure your toy can stand a boiling pot.. I've melted one before, oops. Most times you will be safe with a dish washer. I'm lazy and this is what I tend to do.

I use coffee beans near my boys in a little bag like that of a bean bag, usually you can get these at all craft stores. It will transfer a wonderful scent. You can use your favorite bean scent but you typically want beans to flower scents and petals.

Antibacterial soap, a good scrubbing right after use and never transfer a used anal toy to your partner due to infections (MRSA the biggest) so condoms are right on target! I have used shampoo and I have used dish soap and I was left with a toxic odd feeling in my ass and would never do such again. I guess it depends. Even if I scrubbed them afterwords, dried them, put them up and got them out I still had a horrific experience with shampoo and dish soap. Maybe it's different based on toy material not sure.

Well if you go to the bathroom first that will cut down on the mess.



Using a flavored and sented lube will help cutdown the smell. Even then you can just wash it with bleach every now and then.


However if its anal sex or but play ive found its easier in the shower weather or not the waters on at the time. After your done just clean right up.

Hollywood Chic - if you're using a porous toy (and it sounds like you are if you had dish soap stick around after thorough rinsing) you might want to be careful about using anti-bacterial soaps, since many of the anti-bacterial chemicals are not certified as being OK to use internally or on mucous membranes. All of my anal toys are silicone or other non-porous material, so I don't have any experience cleaning other materials (jelly, wood, rubber, etc.).


Another thing that I've found that seems to work with silicone is just to take the toys with you into the shower, wash them off with soap and water, and let them spend the rest of the shower with the water running over them (I usually put them over the drain). Seems to do an OK job of smell reduction.

I"d really be more worried about using the dishwasher for dishes after running toys through it than using a pot for spaghetti after boiling toys - assuming the toys are clean the boiling water will kill any pathogens (unless you're harboring something really weird). The dishwasher doesn't get nearly hot enough to guarantee dead bugs... though your risk is low due to the dilution.

Without looking it up online now, I don't think you need to get to the 210 deg boiling temp of water to get the desired effect. From what I vaguely remember (no coffee) from working in a restaurant, you really only need to get the temp to 165 or higher, 180 preferably. So, Airen's suggestion of a bringing water to boil and removing it from heat (so the heat from the burner doesn't melt the toy to the bottom of the pot) should work.

One thing about boiling though, wouldn't your kitchen smell like boiled poo?

It will smell only if you didn't clean before hand. There isn't much residue on the silicone.

It depends what you want to do - most beasties are inactivated/dead at 180, but even then most/almost all home dishwashers don't go that high. To be assured of sterility you'd probably need a pressure cooker, but boiling for 5-10 minutes is pretty much indistinguishable from sterile, unless you live in Colorado or the Himalayas.

As long as the pot has water in it and is a reasonable thickness it will never get above 212F. Really thin pots, very hot burners, and wide, flat toy bases might be a problem, but I doubt it with silicone, since you need to get up to over 600F to have a problem. Think of how the heat moves - the pot conducts heat and it travels into the water, which never gets above boiling provided it remains at atmospheric pressure.

oh yeah...I forgot Silicone's higher melting point.

Way to bring real science in Scott!

That's exactly what I do and I've never had a problem. It helps that I'm never really that dirty to begin with.

My method: Mix a baking soda paste, coat the toy in it, let it sit for as long as you can without risk of being discovered (overnight if you live alone, but a half hour might suffice) and then rinse the toy. Just don't scrub with the baking soda, it's too abrasive and will scratch the toy.

Suggestions about storing with vanilla beans or dryer sheets sound excellent, I plan to try those. Great thread!

I love the idea of the vanilla bean. Any smell that my toys have is fairly fleeting, but I love the smell of real vanilla... so sensual.
