Material Cleaning Experiments?

Material Cleaning Experiments?

Cinnamon Chambers Cinnamon Chambers
I see all the time the questions about how to clean and make sure toys are as safe as possible. Has anyone seen or completed any experiments on the toys? I got started thinking more about this when I applied Oil of Love to a condom to see if it would weaken the material. I am curious about a number of things.

1. Why is bleach not safe for jelly etc? What about alcohol? Has there been testing to see how these will affect jelly?

2. What exactly will jelly absorb and how fast? What does it retain after cleaning?

3. How fast does jelly on jelly take to react?

4. Why are latex toys not 100% safe but covering another toy with a latex condom is?

5. I know this is far fetched but a friend suggested it...why not Lysol, etc type cleaners and disinfectants? They are safe enough to clean the areas where food is prepared.

Does anyone have answers, or more questions.

These are just my guesses--don't have the degree to give you conclusive answers (yet)!

4. You don't reuse latex condoms. They are one-use, then you throw them away and put another latex condom the next time you play with your toy. Obviously, you should never reuse a condom (for more reasons than one). Latex toys, however, are not non-porous, and since you can't exactly peel away a layer (like a lint roller! that'd be cool, actually) after every use, they are not 100% safe.

5. I'm guessing because those detergents are very harsh? Or the fragrances they use are irritating or something. I know that I am sensitive to harsh detergents, and that is why I hand-wash all my underwear with a milder cleaner. I think it would be ok to wash your nonporous glass and steel toys with lysol/stronger detergents since it will all rinse away. But for more porous materials, they may trap some of the chemicals, which are very astringent when applied to mucous membranes. No burning vagina for me, thank you.

I would also worry about possibly reactions between the chemicals on some cleaners and toys - which is what I would suggest as far as concern number 1, too.

I don't think there is a certain time period that it takes jelly to react. I've had a jelly toy melt and it was sitting in a cool, dark place. This took months (maybe less because I didn't notice at first) but two toys touching in a warm area would probably take a lot less time.

Would be cool if someone made a video of what happens when you do such and such.

like a time lapse video of jelly mutating then at the end when its all done like it turns into a vicious monster for laughs and video replay ability.

With a fake manufactures warning at the end...

"We told you not to"

LOL

I think a video like that actually WOULD be helpful. The most I know of are Freddy and Eddy's experiments but no video.

YES. That would be exactly what I am looking for. Or slides of microscopic samples of jelly or other materials, with what they harbor, what other chemicals do to them etc etc.

Oh and here is my silly question of the day...how can a latex condom be non porous, and not non permeable but toy of the same material is?

Heheh... kind of like the "Is it a good idea to microwave this?" videos on YouTube... If I had the lab and the means to do it, I would. But alas, someone else will have to accomplish the awesomeness.

As for how a latex condom can be non porous while a latex toy IS.... I have no idea! But I want to know, too. I think latex condoms and latex toys are not 100% latex... so maybe it's the properties of some of the other materials mixed in? I could be wrong.

This sent me on a little google hunt. (Latex) condoms are dipped into latex twice, so the second dipping effectively seals up the pores on the first dipping, preventing anything like STI's and sperm from passing through. I would imagine that second layer probably still has small pores where bacteria, etc. could get lodged, but since it's never reused that's not really a problem. Latex toys on the other hand probably have a similarly bumpy surface (on a microscopic level) and therefore do collect bacteria when used repeatedly. I'm no infectious diseases (or latex) expert, but I think this makes sense.

Mmm, dipped in latex twice! I never knew that -- thanks for sleuthing!

As for #1, I don't really know, but I'm guessing bleach or alcohol would break down the jelly. It's not a very resilient material.

I'd be worried about using any type of surface cleaners on my toys. While I realize they are called "safe for food areas" I personally don't believe it. I certainly don't trust they'd be safe for the thin membranes of my genitalia.

I switched to organic based cleaners 2 or so years ago - and I still wouldn't trust any residue they might leave would be safe for internal ingestion through my vagina. If that makes sense...

I am not advocating it, just curious about if anyone has done a study on it.
