Is it okay to pile up silicone toys together?

Love Obsessed Love Obsessed
I've read that it's not okay to have silicone toys piled together but,when I'm reading about people's storage it's sometimes in trunks and and other things which leads me to believe they are stacked on top of each other.I'm asking because I have a couple of more silicone toys to go before mine has to be on top of each other.I'm wondering should I put them in plastic bags first.

This answer is tricky, but the simplest answer is no. You do not want to have two silicone toys touching. I put more than one silicone toy in a box, but I am sure to have them each wrapped up in something so that they do not ever touch. My toys are pure silicone which is the type of silicone you do not want touching other silicone. Just like with lubricants. You safely store them away from silicone toys in case of leeaking.

If they do touch, it can degrade the material and cause it to break down and the toy could either stop working or start harboring bacteria.

Some toy owners take this risk, but if you want to play it safe, don't do this unless you are POSITIVE that your silicone toy is safe to interact with others.

The scientific answer is that if the silicone is cured the same for all of the toys (and that they are cured completely) they should be okay. The real answer is that there's no easy way to tell if they are, so you may want to get toy bags or wrap them up in cloths before you store them.

If you ONLY own Tantus, Fun Factory, Close2You, or some other high-end all-silicone brand you could pile them on top of eachother, but I wouldn't even risk it between the more soft silicone Tantus toys (like the Tsunami) and the dual-density ones because they seem like they might be cured differently.

Short answer: I just spent $50+ on a silicone toy, I'm not betting that it's going to be cured the same as my other $50+ silicone toy.

Yes, as long as they are 100% pure silicone. Folks have problems when the quality is low or it is a composite of silicone and TPR. All my big silicone toys are kept in a bag under my bed and I have never had and issues to date, even my VixSkin Randy gets put in there.

Some of the soft silicone dils like the Randy, O2 etc. can get dents in them from resting on a toy but it does not "Destroy" them, just adds some more texture.

A storage bag of some kind it a great idea as it keeps the dust bunnies away, also you never know when a different material might get tossed in the box when you are not paying attention.

I'm pretty bad, I guess - my silicone toys are all either next to each other and touching on their shelves, or piled on top of each other in drawers for the most part. I've never had problems with them reacting to each other or anything weird at all.

I had two melt. One was a freebie I got at a party, and without thinking, I just tossed it into a box with my others. When I came back, it was a puddle, attached to another that was deformed, and leaking all over my other toys. It was low quality, soft silicone.

So ... I'd say, don't risk it. It is very sad to say goodbye to toys, especially knowing how expensive they are.

Now I just wrap each toy in cloth -- that's plenty to keep them safe.

I store all of my toys in separate pouches, or ziplock bags, just to be on the safe side.

I wrap my toys in cloth to keep them separated. But I am also investing in compartmentalized storage so I can organize them better, labels and all.

GONE! GONE!
I don't risk it. Everything goes in bags.

I store everything somewhat separate, I try and put thing back in packaging if it'll work and wasn't destroyed getting the toy out, my collection isn't too big et so it still works for me. I'm paranoid about things melting together. I will store a glass toy against pure silicone but I try not to have silicone with silicone

I would love to have all of my stuff labeled.I have a label maker so I just may do that.
Right now mine are in plastic drawers and I'm going to be zip locking the silicones and wrapping my 2's (any jelly are other unsafe material that I get for free with my order.I don't turn down free.)in plastic with string tied around it.Hard plastic and glass will be kept out.
