Failing to clean your sex toys, using the wrong products, or storing them in the wrong place can mean that they go bad and you have to get rid of them.

Keys to make your intimate toys last longer
Taking care of your sex toys will allow you to enjoy them longer. Remember that they have a limited lifespan. Over time, you may notice changes in their color, material, or texture.
Some toys are more waterproof than others, but there are always trickier parts. Whenever you wash them, you have to pay attention to the charging slots (USB) and other compartments. Remove the batteries before washing them, as well as if you do not use it frequently.
Another very common mistake is to confuse the label “submersible” with “water resistant”. Just because they might get wet doesn’t mean you can overwhelm them. First, make sure your toy allows it.
Avoid washing your sex toys in the dishwasher as some unreliable portals suggest. This is the wrong place and we cannot guarantee that your toy will continue to work if you use this method.
When using it, make sure that the lubricant you choose is friendly to its materials, such as water-based ones. Avoid oil- or silicone-based lubes, as they may damage your toys.
