DIFFERENT TYPES OF TOYS
Silicone is a very durable material so it can be easily cleaned with soap and water, boiling to disinfect will not harm it and it can even be placed on the top rack of the dishwasher. Do make sure that the entire product is silicone and that it does not have any plastic parts. Anything that is on the device that is not silicone could be damaged and in this particular case a cleaning with soap and water will be all that you can do. Even though silicone is very durable it can crack and a crack can lead to a tear, so be careful with nails and teeth when you are handling silicone.
It is important to know that latex can be severely damaged by anything that is oil or petroleum based. Latex is primarily used in condoms and dental dams. Use only water-based products with latex (find latex lubricants here), store anything latex away from heat or direct sunlight and discard latex products after use.
RUBBER DILDOS, PLUGS ETC
Rubber is a very porous material, so as previously discussed, the easiest way to keep them clean is with a condom. Clean all rubber products after use with soap and warm water. They need to also be rinsed well as the left over soap residue can cause damage to the rubber and also irritate the skin.
There are two types of vibrators – waterproof and non-waterproof. If you own the waterproof variety then the vibrator can easily be cleaned with soap and warm water. If the vibrator is not waterproof then you have to be very careful not to get water in or around the motor or the batteries. Don't ever immerse a non-waterproof vibrator in water. If it is the hard plastic model, soak a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol to clean and then let it dry and air out. Never use a non-waterproof vibrator under water and don't take an electric vibrator near the bathtub or any other body of water. It can cause electric shock just like any other electrical appliance.
GLASS & ACRYLIC
Glass and Acrylic toys are durable and ultra-modern. These types of materials allow for easy cleaning and are non-porous which is, again, great for hygienic purposes. Glass Dildos can be visually pleasing, but make sure to get a product made of durable glass. The material can be lightweight but is best suited for those looking for a firm toy. Lots of lube will definitely add to a slick and sensual experience. The surface is smooth and is something that you'll actually want people to find on your bed stand. Acrylic is a form of special plastic; it can be very beautiful as it has visual properties similar to glass.
Leather is a very difficult material to keep clean because of all the irregularities of the material. To clean leather, first wash the edges with a strong foaming cleaner and a brush, then wipe down all of the surfaces with hydrogen peroxide and allow it to dry. Follow this by using saddle soap for an additional cleaning. The last process is using a leather conditioner to restore it back to its natural finish. The leather conditioner is an absolute must because without it the leather will begin to dry out and crack. This process does not work on suede
