The advice of lovguru.ch to properly maintain your sextoy
The general rules for the Correct Maintenance of your sextoys
Some basic rules must be respected :
Read the instructions
First of all, read the instructions carefully because each sex toy has its specific characteristics. Example: take good note of the difference between a "waterproof" sex toy and a sex toy which simply states "splashproof". Waterproof means it’s possible to immerse totally in water. Splashproof means that you cannot submerge it in water; it is only resistant to splashes.
Clean your sextoy
For impeccable hygiene it is important to clean your sextoy regularly. Specifically before and after each use, in warm soapy water or with a product specially designed for this purpose and for your specific type of sextoy. You must have a good hygiene habit for the elimination of all bacteria and thus you will prevent the risk of infection. There are many different Sextoy Cleaners at different prices and with different characteristics. They exist in the form of wipes, spray bottles and creams.
For personal use only
Do Not Lend your Sextoys to others: To avoid any transmission of bacteria or sexually transmitted diseases, you are strongly advised not to lend your sextoys. For the same reason, after anal use, do not use your sextoy for vaginal penetration; moreover it can cause mycoses, urinary infections and cystitis. Take care to wash well between the two penetrations or use another sextoy. Our advice, have more than one hygienically clean sextoy available and very close to hand.
Do not use boiling water to clean your sextoy in case of persistent stains because you could damage it. Lovguru.ch advice is that you replace permanently stained sextoys. Why take any risk regarding hygiene and a new one certainly looks better.
Remove the batteries from your sextoy once finished using. This is to avoid any battery leakage of acid which will cause damage.
For a better use
Lovguru.ch recommends the use of water-based lubricants for greater respect of your sex toys and comfort and more intense pleasure.
Sensible Rules to follow while using a sextoy
For a correct maintenance of your sextoy and for your hygiene, it is important to take into account certain rules concerning their usage :
As mentioned before, it is necessary to thoroughly clean your sex toy before and after each use. How? Using a Sextoy Cleaner, apply the cleaner cleansing formula thoroughly all over the sextoy, rub it till the whole surface is clean and cleansed and then wipe with a clean cloth.
If you have heart problems, make sure you are not alone when using your vibrator, as vibration can speed up your heart rate. Please take good note.
Non waterproof motors
Do not completely immerse your sex toy in the water to avoid the risk of corrosion of the motorised parts. This advice does not apply to silicone sex toys that are not equipped with motors.
Do not keep your sextoy too long inside you (geisha balls, for example). This could eventually disrupt vaginal secretions and promote certain irritations or infections. It is definitely not a good idea to sleep with a sextoy inside you.
Further maintenance tips
Depending on the material of your sextoy, some further tips are good to know :
This material, very often used, is resistant but can be damaged by sharp objects and would quickly become unusable. It is therefore necessary to keep it safe from sharp objects.
Avoid the use of silicone-based lubricants. On silicone, silicone contact your sextoy will degrade. We recommend the use of water-based lubricants.
It is necessary to pay close attention to glass sex toys that can crack more easily (borosilicate glass also). The slightest break can cause injury. Take the necessary precautions and store them in a protected place. Check their integrity before use.
Metal sex toys are very strong and very hard, so maintenance and preservation is easier. Still you must clean before and after usage and dry thoroughly after you have cleaned it hygienically.
Sextoys in jelly
