I was asking about that in another thread here. See if there's any helpful information there. You might try comparing ingredients on some toy wipes vs. random wet wipes.

I don't have a definitive answer, though.

Definitely depends on the toy, but I think general wet wipes are probably fine for toys that you clean with just soap and water. I used to buy wet wipes at the drug store that were "sensitive skin formula" or "hands and face" or something like that to try and reduce the amount of unsafe chemicals in them, and I'd always look at the ingredients list. But I've used general wet wipes on my hard plastic toys with no problems.

Toy wipes are made with ingredients that are safe to use on ANY material of sex toy. Wet wipes are not made with thought in mind that you may be wiping a jelly or silicone toy. You could have something in your wet wipe that could start to actually damage the material and break it down. I've heard of it happening!

Oh wow, I've never heard of that happening before! You learn something new everyday.

Personally, I don't use toy wipes OR wet wipes on my toys... I found that they don't work as well as washing with some soap and water, and it takes the same amount of time.

I agree that it totally depends on what type of wipes your talking about. some of the anti-bacterial ones probably have alcohol in them, too. I wouldn't want that on my toys or near my vag.

Hmmm, ever consider Baby wipes? I use those for everything.

I've been using Summer's Eve wipes. They are sensitive enough for your lady parts and are made to keep you clean and fresh down there, so I figure they are good enough for my toys (though I do wash with soap and water as well). I can't use any of the wipes sold on this site, they all contain aloe and I am allergic to aloe.

Oh well, I'll stick to my Summer's Eve. They're cheaper anyway and I can get them at the grocery store or walmart.

I did notice on my package of wipes that I received this week it contains chlorhexidine. I was quite surprised by this it is a medical grade antibacterial that is actually quite expensive ( or so says the hospital that I work for) but hey I have access to these wipes. The chlorhexidine is not toxic and has very little issues with allergic reactions.

Definitely depends on the toy and what it is made of.

I was wondering this too. Shouldn't you use a cleaning product with antibacterial properties? Otherwise it would seem you're not really "cleaning" the toy, just spreading around any existing bacteria.

My wife & have have been using Wet Ones in the bedroom for a basic wipe down of our toys before use. After use I prefer a bit more thorough cleaning. No issues noticed with glass, plastic or silicon toys.

I've never heard of an anyone with an aloe allergy. I'm sorry to hear that I personally use hypoallergenic/alcohol free wipes on my toys, just to clean them off before I actually go and clean them.

I do the same thing, some silicone or rubber toys attract fuzz even after you clean them, and it's a pain to go clean them again!
