A Very Useful Toy Cleaner

While I'd prefer an unscented version, Before & After Adult Toy Cleaner is a great way to keep your toys tidy between uses with a mild, water-free spray. Though, I wouldn't skip out on a good soap-and-water scrub completely, I highly recommend this product to anyone with a toy collection.

extremely useful review
A toy cleaner is a nice addition to any collection, and I've been very happy with Before and After. It's a convenient spray that's both anti-bacterial and soap-free, and allows you to keep your toys tidy without the need for water.

As a person with sensitivities to many chemicals, I checked out the ingredient list carefully. One ingredient (cocamidopropyl pg-dimonium chloride phosphate) has some evidence of being a skin irritant, but the primary antibacterial element in this product is benzyl alcohol, a mild way of stopping bacterial growth. I liked the short ingredient list and the fact that this should be safe for most people; though as warned, use should be stopped if you notice any irritation as a result. Personally, I found the addition of fragrance to be unnecessary, but the smell is pleasant and not overwhelming, though strong. I almost never use the toy directly after treating with the Before and After wash, but I haven't encountered any allergic reactions, thankfully. The label specifically states that it should be safe for your toys and doesn't contain any harsh ingredients or artificial colors.

If I'm not washing a toy right away, I like the option of killing off any bacterial colonies growing on their surfaces, particularly in toys with lots of grooves or those that can't be thoroughly boiled or bleached. While I almost always follow up this spray with a thorough scrubbing in soap and water, using this spray seems like a pretty good way to keep everything a bit more sanitary. However, it simply dries on the surface of the toy, so further work is needed to wash off any lubes or residues, and I'd recommend a more thorough sanitizing between uses if you're sharing this toy, but don't want to exchange fluids. As the name implies, the directions tell you to spray down each toy both "before" and "after" use which seems unnecessary, in my opinion, if it worked the first time. However, it seems to do what it's meant to without any problems, so I give it high marks.
