- Improper cleaning and storage of sex toys can lead to some serious health issues
- From a health point of view, you also need to clean the sex products before using them every time to avoid contact with dirt, bacteria, and the possible spreading of various infections.
- You can also increase your risk of getting in contact with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or other infections if your sex toys are not cleaned or stored properly. Remember that germs can develop anywhere, so make sure you reduce the risk of contracting anything nasty by leaning your toys once you’re done playing.
When is the right time to clean your sex toys?
Since sex toys are usually very personal, many people don’t commonly discuss their use with their doctor. That is, they’re not usually the main “suspect” when things happen to go wrong, health-wise. But the fact of the matter is that poorly kempt sex toys may cause more problems than you could imagine. So, as we’ve said previously, make sure you give them a proper clean before and after each use. Remember, if you’ve used it or you intend on using it, it is always the right time to wash it. So, don’t be lazy but take proactive care of your health by cleaning your sex toys on a regular basis and ensuring that they’re always properly stored.
