Can 100% silicone toys safely touch each other?

Contributor: Eucaly Eucaly
I'm under the impression that if a toy is 100% silicone, like this or this, rather than TPR silicone, that it won't "melt" against other 100% silicone toys.

I went looking for this information, but I couldn't find it.

I'm really low on storage right now, and I'd like to take all my 100% silicone toys out of their separate bags and jumble them together to make more room, but I don't want to do that risky a step based just on what I think I remember.

Is what I think true?

Flame Testing "Silicone" Toys: My video & explanation post
I've been working for awhile now on a post & video that talks about flame testing (the hows and whys) but it was moved to the forefront recently when.

I'm not sure about other silicone toys, but you can definitely let Tantus silicone toys touch each other. In fact, they store them all together, touching each other.

I don't want to take a chance with any of my toys. (I even had a small dent in a Tantus toy just from it being against the side of the packaging shipped in warm weather.)

I use mens handkerchiefs to wrap my toys. You can get them in 100% cotton almost anywhere (I often buy them at second hand or antique stores or even at the Dollar Store) and then wrap each toy individually. Not only does this protect the material of the toys, but it keeps lint and fuzz off them.

Yes, just as long as they are really 100% platinum silicone. I store all mine together all the time: Tantus, Lelo, Fun Factory, Je Joue, Ono, and when I get my Bad Dragon toy I'll store it with all the others.

Yup yup, so long as the toys are 100% silicone, it's fine. I've kept Tantus, Bad Dragon, Lelo, and Fun Factory together with no trouble whatsoever.

Have never had any problems with mine, and I have a few that I've had for many years stored in a box together. Just make sure you don't have any TPE/TPR in there.

Yup I have a few that are to big to place in my toy drawer so the sit in a pile under the bed.

Now, silicone like 02 and VixSkin may get dents and deformation in the outer layer if stored on top of each other. It will not damage them per say but rather just change the look of them.

It,s like P'Gell said, it's not going to react, but other things can affect your toys. It can even be from a dye from the lining of a box or a cloth, and pointy objects obviously. I group 1-2 toys per satin bag and keep them all in a larger box.

I've always kept my silicone toys together without anything happening to them

Just don't store a vixskin dildo in a cotton cloth. I did that with Lonestar and after a while the cloth had oily spots on it. I wrote to Vixen Creations asking them about this and they replied only to say "Don't store our dildos wrapped in cloth."

It's true they only recommend using the tubes in which they send their toys, but damn, those things are HUGE.

But then, speaking about cloth, I once had a stone dildo that was in the bottom of a linen bag, and I had other toys in that bag over it. With time (a few weeks), all the stuff that was piled on it finally made that there was a cloth imprint on the varnish.

Yes, as others have already mentioned before me, it is safe to store 100% silicone toys together since 100% silicone is inert and not reactive. Just make certain that there are no jelly, TPR silicone, or other types of composites (such as SuperSkin, CyberSkin, etc.) stored with your silicone toys.

Composite materials are unstable and reactive, so they will want to bond to silicone. This bonding process makes the composite toy appear as though it is melting. You'll also have a gunky mess adhered to your silicone toy (thanks to the composite toy's attraction to the silicone), so you end up losing both toys. It's also a good idea to keep composite toys away from other composite toys since the instability of their materials may result in them bonding to each other (i.e., keep jelly toys away from other jelly toys or TPE/TPR toys, etc., and keep TPE/TPR toys away from other TPE/TPR toys or jelly toys, etc.).

For the past year, I've kept my LELO, FunFactory, Tantus, Jollies, and other 100% silicone toys piled together inside a Tunti Case and an extra-large Sugar Sak with no materials separating them, and I've had no problem whatsoever. There have been no indentations, scratches, discoloration, material degradation, or wear to any of my toys from storing them this way.

Plastic is also an inert material, so it is also okay to keep plastic toys alongside 100% silicone toys. I've done this as well with no problems, and even placed some metal toys sandwiched between the silicone toys (making certain the metal toys don't touch so they won't scratch each other). Of course, you want to make sure there is nothing sharp that can cut through the silicone (but really, who keeps SHARP insertable sex toys? Just don't keep a wartenberg wheel with them!).

Since VixSkin silicone is so soft, toys made of this material are an exception to the rule: They should be kept separately (at least not pressing against other toys) since indentations can be left behind.

Thanks for the info about the plastic, and the VixSkin.
