The Best Methods to Clean Your Butt Plugs
If you have used butt plugs before, you know how fun they can be. These small anal sex toys can easily make anything happening in the bedroom much more intense and feel good.
However, you should be careful to take care of your butt plugs because they get dirty over time, especially if you neglect to clean them.
Here are some of the best tips that you can try to clean your butt plugs.
Why Do I Need to Clean My Butt Plugs?
Well if you have to ask, you are inserting this toy into your rectum. If you are placing anything in any part of your body, you will want to make sure that it is clean first.
Your anus is definitely not one of the cleanest places in the world, even if you wash it with an enema and mild soap first.
The intestines are home to lots of bacteria, such as E. coli, that can transfer to different parts of your body if you touch it and go to places such as your mouth.
If you aren’t careful, you could get an infection from unclean objects, or using things like your butt plug in your mouth or vagina right after you take it out of your intestines.
Moreover, depending on the type of material your butt plug is made out of, you could create stains over time or it could start to smell even if you clean it after each use.
You just have to make sure that you clean it properly. Additionally, make sure that your butt plug is made from non-porous materials, because porous materials can absorb and keep bacteria inside which could cause an infection if you aren’t careful.
However, there are still non-porous materials such as silicone that can stain and stink after some time, but this can be fixed with some helpful cleaning methods.
Here are some of the best ways you can clean your butt plugs.
The Basic Cleaning Method.
If you have a new butt plug and it doesn’t seem to have a smell or stain, you can just do the basic cleaning method after each use to keep it in good condition.
First, run your butt plug under some warm water until all of the leftover lube and feces comes off. Keep in mind to not use boiling water because it could damage the material of your butt plug.
Once majority of the lube and other stuff is washed off, you can place it in a container filled with warm water and add a little bit of antibacterial mild soap and gently use your fingers to wash the surface of the butt plug.
If the lube seems to stick and is taking a long time to be washed off, just repeat the steps above a few more times.
A big mistake that you should avoid when washing your butt plugs is using a scrubber or brush to clean it.
When you use these items to clean your butt plug, it will leave scratches on the butt plug, which can hide bacteria and make it much more difficult to clean in the future.
How Do I Get Rid of Smells from My Butt Plug?
Even though you clean it, your butt plug may have an odor over time. One of the first things that you should do is make sure that you are not putting your butt plug that has an odor into a place with no air, such as an airtight container.
Placing your butt plug into these places keeps the foul air trapped, with nowhere to go but inside your butt plug which will make the smell either become stronger, last longer, or even both.
Be sure to try some other tips to help get rid of the odor before storing it in closed spaces.
Some people swear by using coconut oil to get rid of the smell. Coconut oil is known to be a natural deodorizer, as many people use it in place of deodorant.
What you can do is to slather some coconut oil all over your butt plug and leave it to sit for around an hour or two until you wash it off.
When you wash it off, use some water, not hot, water along with some mild soap to get rid of the stickiness.
To combat the smell staying inside of your butt plug, allow your plug to air dry for a day or even up to three days, results will be much more effective if your plug sits under sunlight while it is drying.
Baking soda is usually a cure for lots of different things. You can try to use it to get rid of any foul odors from your butt plug, because baking soda is said to absorb odor.
You can place it in a container with 4 cups of water along with 1 cup of baking soda and let it chill in there for a few hours, afterwards just do your regular washing method, let it air dry, and it should be good to go!
These tips will help keep you having fun and sanitary, so happy cleaning!
