Do Silicone Toys "Melt" During Contact?

Slutty Girl Problems Slutty Girl Problems
I'm kind of new to the sex toy world and sex toy storage - and want to make sure my toys stay safe!

Do silicone toys really "melt" if they touch one another for too long?

Currently, I have all my silicone toys in one bin, touching each other. I haven't had a problem, but I've heard it might be an issue.

Does anyone have experience with this? Is there a better way to store - like keeping them in plastic baggies or wrapped up?

Thank you!!

My silicone toys have never experienced that either, probably because they're all made with premium 100% silicone.

For people who are not so sure about their silicone toys' material quality, storing the toys individually in plastic ziplock bags is the easiest way to keep them safe.

The quality of the silicone makes a difference in how well they will hold up, that's for sure. Some blends or less than premium silicone will melt on contact.

Some toys say silicone, but they aren't all silicone. Thus its good to be cautious storing silicone toys together since if they aren't entirely silicone they'll try to bond to each other (causing an icky, tacky texture and "melting" effect.) If a toy is made of 100% silicone they can touch other toys of that sort. If not, they can be kept separate by keeping them in a plastic baggies as Rossie says.

Brands like LELO, Tantus, and Fun Factory tend to have trustworthy 100% silicone products (As well as Evolved silicone vibrator enhancers). Vixskin is good silicone too, but I recall reading that vixskin silicone doesn't play well with others. Something about the soft type material. I forget all the details of that though.

Silicone lubes should generally be avoided for silicone toys though. Lubricated condoms should also avoid being used on silicone toys as they might have silicone lube in the ingredients. Certain silicone lubes are fine I hear, but I think it's easier to just use water based.
