Anti bacterial toy cleaner - toy cleanser by Doc Johnson - review by LuckyLady

Not Worth It

This antibacterial toy cleaner by Doc Johnson isn't really worth the buy. Even though it's super affordable, comes in a large bottle, and has a nice smell, it doesn't clean well. It takes more than one attempt to get a toy clean with this spray.

The Doc Johnson Antibacterial Toy Cleaner comes without packaging; no box or instructions are included seperately. The cleaner is held in a plastic bottle with a spray cap for dispensing. The toy cleaner is a very generous sized 4 fl. oz bottle. The bottle is a frosted plastic and the label is white, blue, and orange. The elements chart is the design choice for this bottle.

The instructions are under the bottle's label. There are also instructions on the outside of the label. These two instruction placements contradict each other. The directions on the label read, " Hold bottle approximately 6" from item. Spray item, but do not drench. Let air dry or wipe with a clean, soft cltoh." Whereas the instructions under the label read, "Pump a small amount of foam into palm of hand. Rub thoroughly all over surfaces. Rub briskly until dry." I'm going to go with the first set of instructions; spray and wipe. There is no foam. It's just a soapy spray.

This spray is antibacterial and the active ingredient is Triclosan 0.30% which is antimicrobial. The ingredients are: Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Fragrance, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methyllisothiazolinone, polysorbate 20, sodium laureth sulfate, tetrasodium edta, and water.

The fragrance reminds me of a strong musky cologne. It's not an irritating smell and does dissipate after a while. It doesn't smell like chemicals at all. It's got a spray pump for dispensing. The bottle doesn't leak nor does the nozzle. The spray is a thin mist that covers a wide area. A couple of pumps could easily cover the average vibrator.

The clean isn't all that great unfortunately. I've had to go over toys two to three times to get them clean with this cleaner. It doesn't leave any residue from the cleaner itself but it does leave a toy still dirty after it's first wipe down. Not the best cleaner to be honest.

It's perfectly safe to use on all toys; even silicone, jelly, or glass. So far I've used this on glass and plastic toys. For both materials I have to go over it again to get it clean but this is safe to use on them.

Honestly I'm going to just use this as a back up toy cleaner in case I run out of my other cleaners. It DOES clean eventually but I have to go over a couple of times to get the clean that I want. I feel that it doesn't break down body fluids easily to get the clean you would want out of a toy cleaner.
Because it is affordable, comes in a large bottle, and does have cleaning properties I would recommend this as a cleaner only before use. I wouldn't recommend this as a cleaner for after use.
