Anyone else ever blow dry their toys?

Anyone else ever blow dry their toys?

Coralbell Coralbell
I usually use a blow dryer to dry my toys after I wash them. If I dry them with a towel they get all linty, and I can't leave them sitting out to air dry. My boyfriend saw me doing it and thought I was crazy. Does anyone else do this?

Your not crazy, it does sound really interesting something that would not hurt to try.

I have used the blow dryer to dry we spots on my clothing, the sofa, and so on, but never thought about it for toys.

Hmm never thought about that before, interesting idea though.

This never occurred to me at all! I usually just pat dry the ones that are the worst for lint, using my least lint-making towel. Things usually air dry fast enough for my liking, but I might try this someday on something like the Sqweel if I don't have time to leave it laying out

actually it sounds like a great idea, so many toys just pick up fuzzies and lint like crazy. i usually wash them dry them with a towel and wash them before i use them again to get the lint off

It'd be a great idea if they're lint magnets!

I have! I used to let them air dry, but really hated having them hanging out in the bathroom where the cat could socialize with them. I didn't really think about the lint factor, but that gives me one more reason for it when my man looks at me sideways.

I usually don't because most of my toys don't collect lint so I just towel-dry them, but for those that are lint-magnets, this sounds like a good idea.

Yup, works great for strokers/masturbators like the Fleshlights. I just use the "no heat" setting. Since we have kids around it is impossible to leave toys out to air dry so the blow dryer works wonders. I also have used my air compressor too to blow them off/out.

I've never done it...but look at my hair line...notta lot of hair to dry.

I'd use the no-heat option, of course.

I usually dry off my toys with a towel. It's not too much trouble, even for the silicone toys that tend to collect bits of lint and fluff.

Nice to know there are a couple of others who do this

Tim - I didn't think about masturbators, but it would make even more sense for them since you definitely can't use a towel inside them.

I use the heat, but I only do it with silicone toys. If I was drying other soft materials that can melt I'd turn the heat off.

Never needed to use a blow dryer on my toys. My silicone toys do attract lint, but not to a degree that I have to blow-dry it. There's usually only a few droplets of water left after I wash and shake off the excess, then I dab the droplets with a paper towel and put the toys away, no worry about lint!

I never thought about it, but now that I am thinking, it would speed up the drying process on air-dry only toys (silicone, sleeves)

some of my toys get really linty even when they are dried, so I really don't even bother.

Oh, really? Mine usually stay clean during storage. Which is surprsing, because everything else I own usually gets covered in cat hair. Once they come back out they start picking things up though. I always have to re-wash them or use a toy wipe when I'm taking picture for reviews because I set them down on my bed.

No, I'm usually OK with drying them off with a towel.

We have pets and pet hair EVERYWHERE, including towels. Blow drying works great on most toys.

That's actually a really good idea. My hair dryer crapped out months ago, and I never got it replaced. This might be another incentive to finally go get one.

Great idea to keep your silicone from getting all linted up. But I wouldn't risk it for plastic or elastomer and definitely not leather.

Good idea for my silicone toys, I generally just let them air dry.

GONE! GONE!
No but that's a great idea so I'm gonna try it with my silicone toys!

No, I don't even have a blow dryer so the thought never crossed my mind. Besides, I just sit them back in my cabinet to allow them to air dry in a lint free area.

It sounds like a good idea as long as the toy doesn't have a low melting point and aren't leather, as blow drying would dry out the item.

I use older towels as they tend to have no lint. We cannot leave out toys out to air dry because we have kids who use our bathroom and I don't even feel comfortable leaving them out in our bedroom.

I don't own a blow dryer. I have to borrow one of my daughters' blow dryers when I need to do something like use plastic on a window or something like that.
