How to Make Your Fleshlight Last as Long as Possible
Buying a Fleshlight is a big investment — financially and in your own sexual pleasure. Once you drop that kind of cash, you want it to last as long as possible. How you use, clean, and store it can make all the difference.
Here’s what you know to get the longest possible use out of your favorite Fleshlight.
Reducing Fluids and Oil from Your Skin
The thing that makes your Fleshlight dirty is that you use it (obvious, right?). So if you want to keep it clean and reduce the chances of making it gross, the best option is to reduce the amount of fluid or oils from your skin that gets on the SuperSkin material in the first place. But we’re not telling you not to masturbate with your favorite stroker! We’d never do that. Instead, consider wearing a condom when you play.
Even with a condom, you’ll still need to clean your Fleshlight, but clean up is much easier. If you masturbate while wearing a condom, all you have to do is throw away your condom and give your Fleshlight a quick rinse with soap and water. You don’t necessarily need to disassemble it and go through all the steps below.
Properly Cleaning Your Fleshlight
Does the idea of using a condom with a Fleshlight make you shrivel up a little bit? We get it. If you’re going to go bareback with your own adult toy (and who can blame you?), you’re going to need to know how to correctly clean your Fleshlight so that it lasts as long as possible.
- Disassemble it completely. Remove the caps and the case and clean the sleeve separately.
- Use hot water, soap or Fleshwash, and Fleshlight Renewing Powder. If you use Fleshwash, thoroughly rinse the sleeve, allow it to air dry a bit, then spray on the wash. Rinse again.
- Do not boil or microwave your Fleshlight, and don’t use an alcohol-based cleaner. These methods can breakdown the SuperSkin material and ruin your Fleshlight.
- Clean your Fleshlight as soon as possible after you use it. Allowing lube and other fluids to sit too long can ruin your Fleshlight. If nothing else, it gets gross and makes it harder to use when you’re in the mood.
The case and end caps should also be cleaned. You can use soap and water, alcohol, and other cleaners that are safe for plastic. What you need to be careful about is the SuperSkin sleeve because the material can break down over time which will ruin your toy.
Keep the SuperSkin Soft and Supple
Proper cleaning will help your Fleshlight last a long time, but you also want it to keep feeling good, too. This is where Fleshight Renewing Powder comes in handy. Once your Fleshlight is clean and dry, apply a thin layer of the powder on it. Don’t rinse or wipe it off, just let it sink into the material and stay there. This will keep your sleeve supple and soft for a long time to come.
Do not use talcum powder for this process! It can break down the material and kill your stroker. If you want to use something other than Fleshlight Renewing Powder, choose a cornstarch-based powder.
Reassembly and Storage
Before you put your Fleshlight back together and put it away, make sure it’s completely dry. Let all the pieces sit out and air dry. Putting it away wet can allow mold and bacteria to grow and spread on your Fleshlight. Gross!
Once dry, put your Fleshight back together. If you’re not going to use it for a while, put the cap over the opening. This will prevent dust and debris from getting into the sleeve. Store your Fleshight in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use it again.
Whether your Fleshlight is modeled after a favorite porn star or it’s just one you really love in general, you want it to last as long as possible. By taking proper care of your masturbation stroker, you’ll have it to use for years into the future. Get into a habit of cleaning it after each use and you’ll never have to worry about funky smells, gross sleeves, or broken down sleeves.
