VixSkin isn't too hard to take care of. Because VixSkin toys are so soft, Vixen Creations recommends keeping them in their original packaging (or at least standing upright and not touching other toys) to help them keep their shape and prevent them from picking up indentations.

Beyond that, their care is pretty much the same as any other silicone dildo. Water- and oil-based lubes are fine on them, but because the bases and shafts are of different densities, patch testing silicone lubes won't really tell you much so it's best to avoid them (they're pretty draggy toys if you don't use lube, just so you know). Like regular silicone, VixSkin can be bleached or boiled to sterilize it.

Yep, this. I don't do anything special to mine other than storing them upright. One thing I wonder though is if it's still recommended to keep them in their original packaging if the toy is a little too big for the package. My Spur is pressed up against the side of the plastic.

I noticed this, too. Both of my VixSkin toys - the Spur and the Tex - have a small spot on their heads pressed against the plastic. So far, they're both fine (perhaps because it's not the entire weight of the toy pressing on it?), and it's such a small spot that it wouldn't really hurt anything even if the indent was permanent.

Here's what I do with my Maverick:

After use, wash with soap and water. Dry. Put back in plastic sleeve (don't bother with the lid), toss in toybox.

Here's what I do with my silicone toys:

Wash with soap and water. Dry. Toss in toybox.

Have had no problems. I've had the VixSkin for over a year, and the silicone toys for up to 10 years. That's why I love silicone.

Just simply store your VixSkin in either original clam shell or cylinder containers.
