I have the Sugar dildo and i like it very much. I'm using it only vaginally. I know this toy can be boiled to sterilize, should I do that every time I use this silicone dildo?

I think 'tis up to you. Soap and water really are probably fine. But if you are particularly concerned, boil away

It's not necessary to do it every single time, no. I'd say a good scrub with liquid antibacterial soap and warm water, and boiling it maybe every fifth time or so will give you a toy that'll last for years! Remember the water should be at a rolling boil (the bubbles keep the silicone from laying on the very hot bottom of the pot) and you really only need maybe 3 or 4 minutes in the boiling water before it's ok.

To *clean* the toy, soap and water is just dandy.

To *sterilize* the toy, you can do three things. a) Boil it in a pot for 3 minutes, b) put it in the dishwasher (top shelf, no soap), or c) wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution.

You only need to sterilize it everyone once in a while, OR if you're sharing it with new people, OR if you or your partner has any type of genital infection (yeast, URI, etc).

Hope that helps!
