We clean everything using warm water and anti bacterial soap, but I still give a spray down of "toy cleaner" before each use. We also wipe any anal toys immediately with "Wet Ones" antibacterial pads...which we keep a tub of in our nightstand. To keep toys CLEAN, once clean and dry, each of ours "lives" in a ziplock bag" of it's own. That way they STAY clean between uses..no dust, no anything. Fresh and ready to go. Kept things safe once too, when batteries leaked in one toy (ruined it, but kept all our other EXPENSIVE toys safe and sound).
