How to Store Sex Toys

Keep your sex toys lasting, time after time.

Sex toys are safe for bodily use, but they can be quite reactive when put next to certain other materials. It is vital to be careful when storing your sex toys. If you mix your sex toys (particularly rubber, latex, realistic feel and jelly sex toys) you may soon discover that they start to look melted or slightly misshapen.

We can't overstate how important it is that you store your sex toys separately if you don't want a nasty surprise the next time you reach for your favourite toy.
