    How do you sterilize your toys?

    I heard back from the clinic today and tested positive for something and i was too shocked to even ask. Ive googled it but there are so many different answers i got so confused.

    I clean my toys anyway with hot water and antibac spray but would that be enough?

    Any advice will be greatfully recieved.

    How about you buy some Milton sterlising tablets and soak all waterproof toys in that. An ex cheated on me once and gave me something but I only had a few toys back then so I just binned them

    Some materials toys are made of are porous (jelly rubber not sure about others) so those I would probably bin.. But I'd soak the rest to be safe.

    From the threads title I for some reason has Herbie in my head! Slightly different lol. I'm with BB, I'm probably ask the clinic for advice, they're bound to have been asked before as well as I wouldn't worry about embaressment!

    I'd throw the lot, I think. Unless its glass or steel. The rest would be too much of a risk for me.

    Phone the clinic direct for professional advice, though.

    And stay safe :)

    I wash them thoroughly with nearly hot water and skin-friendly dishwashing liquid. Works for me.

    In my case the chief task is to get the silicone lubricant off my toys. That they are bio-squeaky-clean too, afterwards, is just a welcome side-effect ;) I don't overdo it though...

    I find the best method is to use hot water and a pH balanced soap. Leave to air dry and then spritz with antibacterial sex toy cleaner and air dry again before packing away.

    Don't forget that glass and silicone toys can be boiled safely, if you prefer to fully sterilise. Just remember that glass will be incredibly hot after boiling so take care when removing from the water :)
