Wiping off toys

Wiping off toys

pornshopgirl pornshopgirl
Just a quick question about proper toy aftercare!

When you finish rinsing soap/toy cleaner/what-have-you off of your toy, what do you use to wipe it down and dry it off?

I normally use a regular bath towel, but that leaves fuzzies all over it, especially on jelly toys.

Do paper towels suffice? Is there a special kind of rag or something you've bought for your toys?

Thanks!

I use a microfiber towel, works great.

The microfiber sounds like a good idea. I generally use a ordinary towel and either ignore the fuzzies (many of my toys are used anally, so they don't matter) or rinse it off in warm water before use, which also helps to warm the toy up. My soft toys in regular use are all silicone, so that might change things somewhat.

I use a regular, non-fluffy towel, or if possible I let them air dry. The microfiber sounds like a good idea.

I use the thin dishtowels that are usually sold in packs for $1. They act like a reusable paper-towel due to the light weight of it, and I generally don't find stray fibers afterwards. If I do, though, they are usually sparse enough to brush off after fully drying.

I usually let my toys air dry, but then, I live with my husband only. I imagine that would be a lot harder to do in a room mate/at home situation.

I live in a dorm, so my routine is usually either wipe the toys off with either toy wipes or feminine wipes, or I spray them with toy cleaner and wipe them down with paper towels.

With kids in the house air dry can be tricky. So after cleaning I use the wife's blow dryer that has a no heat setting. Drys them off real fast and the kids just think i am drying my hair.

Microfiber is always a great idea. Some local stores sell what are called 'cloth diapers' with their baby products too. While I used to buy them for waxing my car (since they are lint-free) they are soft and great on toys that pick up fuzzies.

I also recommend storing your toys in plastic bags so they don't pick up anything from a storage bag or box

I usually air dry. I bet a sham would work too.

I usually wipe off toys on the carpet when I am finished.

Carpet fibers would leave an interesting texture on toys...I'm sensing an April Fools review on this subject.

It's true the carpet fibers are a mess. So what I started doing was using an old school straight-razor and now shave the toys in between each usage.

Do you melt the pieces back together into a new toy when you're finished? That would be SO totally, wonderfully green.

See I knew you would have the solution! Then if the session doesn't go real well you can exclaim, "I shaved for this??!!??"

No, I put them in mason jars and sell them as paperwieghts on Etsy.

I agree with this. It's what I do.

I dry them with a cotton bit of cloth (I have a lot of random fabric in my room ) then let them air dry the rest of the way.

I personally would stay away from jelly toys because they're very porous but that's beside the point. I usually air dry to avoid the fuzzies.
