Air Drying

Air Drying

innervated innervated
Sorry if there's another topic about this somewhere, but how do you guys air dry your masturbators? I have a Fleshlight and Flip Hole Black coming in on Tuesday (yay! ) and was curious if there would be any risks if I didn't let the inserts dry properly. I live with a few other people so I would have to dry them discreetly, probably in my closet or something. Any ideas?

There's the possibility of mold growing if you don't let them dry properly. The Flip Hole Black can be balanced on it's base to dry it open, which makes it pretty easy to make sure it's dry.

As for where to dry them, do you share a bathroom? If not you could always leave them out to dry in there. If so, you could always try the closet idea, or try drying them in a drawer that's slightly open to permit air flow.

We have kids and our toy storage area we have to keep locked, so what i have found works the best is to use the wife's hair dryer. It has a setting that does not blow hot air. Saves on dry time, plus the kids just think I am drying my hair.

That's pretty clever

@MuffysPinguLove: Unfortunately we do share a bathroom so I think I have to stick with the closet. Thanks for the info I'll be sure to let them air dry completely to avoid mold

@dwtim: Ohh great idea. How long does it usually take for it to completely dry when you blow dry it, and do you hold the blow dryer at a distance or is it safer and quicker to put it right up to the toy?

Oh and another quick question, do you have to rinse/clean the toy before every use or is it ready from the previous cleaning before storage?

A few things...

- After cleaning you could use a towel or a paper towel to dry up as much moisture as possible. This will definitely cut down on the overall drying time.

- For the Fleshlight it is not so much the case but the sleeve that really needs to dry (you can completely dry the case). If you have no other alternative, you could always just throw the sleeve in your sock drawer over night to dry out. This would also work great for the Flip Hole if stored open.

- I didn't let my Fleshlight dry enough once, and then it sat for a while closed. The next time I went to use it, it did have a weird smell to it. So I cleaned it really good, and then poured some alcohol into the sleeve, let is sit for a few minutes, and then washed it again. After this the smell was gone.

- Since the Fliphole opens the whole way, it will dry way quicker.

- The hair dryer idea is really good!

- The Fleshlight and the Fliphole are both really awesome. Enjoy!

WOW great idea! I'll pass that one on to the guys. Sigel has a shelf in a closet in his office to dry his toys he just leaves the door open slightly and checks the toys after a few hours.

It would probably be safer to hold the dryer at an angle to the toy so that the air flows over the wet area. This will prevent scorching or over drying should you forget to use the "air" or cool setting on the dryer.

It is advisable to at least rinse off a toy before use but with some materials not really necessary if they are stored properly. Anything non-porous if stored in a clean, dry area should be fine after previous cleaning to use without rinsing. Anything that could possibly contain phthalates should be full on washed with soap and water prior to use (a good indication of phthalates is a greasy, oily filmon the toy after storage). Anything porous should be used with a condom if possible or rinsed before use. I have no idea about the "real" skin products but I would imagine if they are clean and dusted with cornstarch only they should be safe to use without rinsing if they were properly cleaned after prior use. It goes without saying that if you get a new toy it should be thoroughly cleaned before initial use.

No problem
I have also used a air compressor to blow it out, just not as convenient.

I have a Maven sleeve, it usually takes about 4 or 5 minutes to dry. (shorter if I turn it in side out) I recommend angling the blow dryer and the sleeve so the water does not get in the dryer (safety first). Shake as much water out as you can first
