Weird/bad smells on or from vibrators.

TheFirecat TheFirecat
Hello everyone,

So I had just gotten a couple new toys a couple days ago and noticed a couple of them had this awfully gross odor. I know this is normal and it's happened before, but the smell just isn't going away. Is there a way to get rid of the smell? Like a cleaner or something? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks!

a friend told me about using flavored lube removing odors. I've tried it & it doesn't work for me, although it works for her.

This really depends on the material of the toys that smell. I normally use rubbing alcohol to remove odors, but it's not safe on many materials. Plus, some materials like Jelly are likely to just keep smelling anyway.

Well the couple toys in question are indeed made of jelly material. As I've mentioned before, this has happened before, but the smell went away after a couple uses. With these toys, the smell is just not fading away like it has before on other toys.

Will rubbing alcohol make jelly toys deteriorate or make it unsafe to use? Same question can be applied to using lubes(i.e. water based vs. oil or silicone based)

Thanks again for all the insight!

On a side note, would using anti-bacterial wipes help at all? Just another curiousity.

Thanks

No alcohol on jelly!!! It really deteriorates the material!! I do use flavored/scented lube on the toys and it does remove most of the smell.

--wash toys with a toy cleaner and soap and water.
--let them air dry for at least 24 hours.
--rub flavored lube thoroughly on the item and let it set for about a half hour to an hour.
--wash thoroughly with soap and water.
--air dry the item until dry.
--you can use corn starch on the jelly to help neutralize remaining odor and to condition the material so it is not tacky.

This is why I've never bought toys made out of jelly...

We had some jelly toys that really stunk, I threw them out and am slowly replacing the remaining ones that aren't so bad with non-jelly materials. My advice is do the same - from what i understand the smell is chemicals leaking out of the material, so you don't want them leaking into you!

Jelly toys aren't really safe to use anyway because they contain dangerous chemicals. But yes, rubbing alcohol would destroy them.

My biggest suggestion would be to replace the toys with a safer material.

Wow! I'm glad I didn't use alcohol after all! Any recommendations for toy cleaners or lube that I should get? (i.e. silicone-based vs. water or oil based)

Thanks for your sage advice

I always use water based lubes. The Zero Tolerance Foaming Masturbator Cleaner seems to work the best for me on the softer materials. I use a stronger scented/flavored lube for the jellies....raspberry or cherry seems to work the best. Chocolate does not seem to work very well.....

Never use oil or silicone on soft items.
