Silicone and plastic toy storage

Silicone and plastic toy storage

What is the best way to store silicone and plastic vibrators? I heard that silicone can melt if stored with another silicone toy, is it safe to store plastic with silicone or not?

Here's the breakdown:

1) Pure silicone can be safely stored with pure silicone, but not silicone compounds (so be careful not to let TPR silicone get in there by accident). I keep most of my silicone dildos together in a makeup bag, and they're perfectly fine.

2) Hard plastic, glass, and metal are inert and thus safe to put with anything.

3) Toys of other materials (jelly, TPR, TPR silicone, cyberskin, etc.) should each be stored individually.

The only materials I'm not certain about are ceramic and wood. I can't think of any reason why these two would cause reactions, but since I'm not sure I won't make any solid statements on the topic.

Plastic baggies are usually fine for keeping toys separated, though I have heard of jelly having a reaction to them.

I try to keep all of my toys from touching each other, both to prevent any sort of color/material bleeding at all...and also to prevent any chipping that might happen if glass/metal toys tapped against each other (not paranoid about this, but might as well avoid it).

Yeah, I forgot about keeping glass toys from chipping and things like that. Got too focused on the chemical aspect in my explanation.

I just try to keep everything seperate as I can't keep all those rules straight.

Rin is right on the money here. 100% pure, medical grade silicone is completely inert and will not melt. Silicone compounds can melt/degrade, however.

An easy way to store toys if you don't have a ton of toy pouches is in a tube sock. They're the perfect size and shape!
