Let the sink run for a while, and when the water is super hot, put the plug in and let your toy soak.

This, or, if your toy is marked as microwave safe, follow the instructions in the package VERY carefully! (If there aren't instructions, then even if it claims it's microwave safe, I don't recommend it.)

Could also use a heating pad to warm it up but I usually just run hot water over mine.

Hot water works or you can also use a heating pad. Make sure you heat it up slowly and always test on your inner arm before inserting.

Note about microwaves; be super careful when removing it.

Running it under hot water is probably the most convenient. I'd be super careful about using the microwave - it can heat it more than you think.

I fill a huge coffee cup up with slightly cooled boiled water from the kettle and leave it in for five or so minutes before play time. This way, not only am I heating it, but I'm also doing a 'pre-clean'.
I prefer iced water, though, for temp play with glass toys.

I personally wouldn't use the microwave method -- Don Wands care instructions that came with my Bent Graduate warn not to use this heating method for the very reason Sammi has mentioned above.

Oh, and I am liking the suggestion for a warming pad! I'll have to give that one a go.

Microwaves can be weird, I think I'd just avoid them. Hot water is what I use.

Microwaves are a bad idea. They do not heat evenly and you could get some serious hot spots in your toy that can very well burn your bits.

Warm tap water does the trick and it really does not take long at all.

You can use a microwave, but I recommend heating it in water, if you do. Be extremely careful on type of glass. Tempered glass is not microwave safe unless it is pyrex or a similar material. Always go by the manufacture's instructions. If it only states tempered and does not say microwave safe, heat it with tap water or something similar.

I like the sink idea, thanks so much everyone!
