Silicone toys - safe to store together?

Contributor: THUMPER THUMPER
Hello,
I'm new to silicone toys and wanted to know if it is okay to store them together without a barrier. The boxes take up a bit of room and I'd rather get rid of them if it's safe to do so. Currently I have toys from Tantus and Fun Factory. Also, what brands are the best and which are not recommended? Thanks in advance for your advice.

If they are 100% silicone they can be stored together with no problems.

At one time we kept ours all in a small plastic box. No problems at all.

Oh yeah, if you have the Tantus O2 or Vixen VixSkin you will want to keep them protected so they don't dent up. I don't have either of these, but I understand that the outer layer is extra soft.

Silicone toys are safe as long as you don't "wedge" or "stuff" them too much, which can lead to dents and creases. The other thing to be careful is to keep them away from sharp edges.

They're safe bumping up against each other so long as they're all 100% silicone. If you think something's silicone, and it's actually not, then the chemicals in the composite could attempt to lure the silicone in the 100% silicone toy to come on over for a visit, resulting in melted toys. You should be fine with Fun Factory and Tantus, though.

I store everything in separator bags regardless of material, because it cuts down on lint. Silicone loves to collect lint.

Same here. I have a whole crap load of satin bags I got at Pier 1 and use those for storage. Everything has a pretty little home. If it is too big for one of those I use a big Ziplock.

I hate to sound redundant... but just so you are aware... a toy can be labelled as silicone when it has only as much as 10% silicone in it vs a true 100% silicone, so be sure to make sure your toys say 100% as the other ones probably shouldn't be stored with them.

As Mr E said it should be fine as long as it a 100% silicone. Metis Black president of Tantus, said she has never had any problem storing pure silicone toys together and if it is good enough for her it good enough for me link.

I've found that I can keep my silicone toys together if they are from the same manufacturer and 100% silicone, no melty toys. I would not recommend storing toys from different brands and different percentages of silicone together though.

Thanks, everyone! I appreciate the information. Sorry for the belated recognition!

I also keep each toy in it's own little baggie. I prefer keeping them protected that way. Especially since it's hard to know with 100% if certain toys really are silicone as they claim.
