I need toy cleaning tips!

Princess. Princess.
I tend to run my toys under warm water and wipe them off with anti-bacterial spray. But I've wanted to boil them for a while, I'm just hesitant about boiling my silicone vibrators. I'm afraid water will seep in a ruin them... Do you guys have any tips to settle my anxieties?

I probably would NOT boil a vibrator, not even one that was claimed to be waterproof. Unless you really know the internal construction and you are absolutely confident that there are no plastic parts inside that could melt from the heat. If however you are set on using boiling water, you might just pour the boiling water over the toy allowing the water to immediately drain down the sink. But even then IF there are parts inside that could be susceptible to heat damage... "I told you so"

Are your toys 100% Silicone with no seams(where batteries might go or other vibe internals might be placed)? If they are 100% silicone, you can dunk them into boiling water. Some people even use a 10% bleach solution, but I don't. I would think the boiling hot water would be enough.

The hot water and wipes can also be good too though.

I've heard that at least one toy says it is waterproof but isn't. I use antibacterial soap, avoiding machinery parts.

No, no, no, you cannot sanitize your silicone vibrator by boiling or in the dishwasher, even if it's waterproof! Like RonLee said, high heat could melt the components inside the vibrator. You can soak your waterproof silicone vibrator in a fresh batch of bleach solution (1 part bleach, 9 parts water) if you want to do some serious sanitizing.

I concur with all the other advice. If it has a motor do not boil or put in the dishwasher. The high heat will likely ruin the components inside. Glass or silicone dildos are fine to boil or wash in the dishwasher. I use either toy wipes or warm water, cloth and antibacterial soap for vibrators.

If the toy has any parts that are not silicone: metal, plastic, etc; can use batteries, or has a motor, don't boil it.

I wouldn't boil a vibrator. If you honestly need to clean it more than using antibacterial soap, try a 10% bleach solution.
