Cleaning Your Rabbit Vibrator

Why and when to clean your rabbit vibrator

Cleaning your rabbit vibrator to keep it in good condition is important for a healthy and long-lasting relationship with your rabbit.

Cleaning your rabbit vibrator – and drying it – after using it helps prevent bacteria building up on it, and also keeps it free of dust. Both these things keep the vibrator hygienic and safe to use, and help it to stay in good condition for longer.best rabbit vibrators UK

Some sex toy companies recommend that you not only clean your toy after you use it, but also just before you use it again the next time, for tip-top hygiene.

However, as long as you give it a really thorough clean after using it and as long as you store it carefully, as outlined below, you should be fine.

One thing that’s important is to clean it as soon as possible after you’ve finished using it, so that you’re not giving all those sticky residues and bacteria time to get too attached.

For what to clean it with, sex toy manufacturers may tell you that you need a special sex toy cleaner. There are advantages to these (more details below) but any antibacterial soap will work.

Use a mild soap – avoid strong detergents, and if you are prone to skin sensitivities or allergies make sure you use a product that you know you won’t be irritated by, just in case any soap residue does linger.

All you need is: antibacterial soap, warm water, kitchen roll or a clean towel.

 

Tips for cleaning your rabbit vibrator

Make sure your vibrator is switched off before you put it near any water.

Take out any batteries and make sure the battery compartment is tightly closed, so no water sneaks into the electrics.

Use water that is warm but not too hot as that may damage the surface of the vibrator.

If your vibrator is waterproof, then you can completely immerse it in water and give it a good wash down (still making sure the batteries are removed and the battery compartment is tightly closed). If it’s given you a good bath, then time for you to give it one too 😉

If it’s not waterproof, then don’t let the battery compartment/controls get wet, but carefully clean the shaft and rabbit using a clean damp cloth.

Pay attention to the shape of your vibrator, and clean particularly carefully in and around textured or shaped areas like ridges and nodules, as stickiness and bacteria tend to gather here. This is particularly important with rabbit vibrators, with those intricate little rabbit parts. Make sure to clean behind the ears!

Rinse your vibrator thoroughly in warm water, paying attention to the same areas as when washing, to make sure soap residue isn’t left in any places.

Lay it out on a clean piece of kitchen roll and let it air dry, or dry it thoroughly with a clean towel. DON’T put it on or near a heater as too much heat can damage it.

 

Products for cleaning your rabbit vibrator

You don’t have to buy anything fancy to clean a vibrator. For most vibrators, a mild antibacterial soap is fine.

However, there are advantages of using dedicated sex toy cleaners. They come in spray form, so they’re really quick and easy to use – just spray all over your vibrator, leave it for a minute or two (check the specific product instructions), then wipe it off and rinse.

Spray cleaners are particularly good for rabbit vibrators, with their with intricately shaped rabbit parts which can be hard to reach with a cloth. Also the fact that they are designed for this particular kind of cleaning may give you extra peace of mind.

Also, if you use your vibrator in different orifices and / or if you (want to) share your vibrator with a partner, then you’re best to get an anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner to make sure your toys are completely hygienic;

And if your vibrator is made of jelly rubber, silicone, or a real-feel material, then it’s a good idea to use an anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner and also a ‘renewer powder‘ – see below.

Here’s some good sex toy cleaners – all under £5 – which are suitable for use on any and all sex toys.

Cleaning specific kinds of rabbit vibrator

JELLY RUBBER

Jelly Rubber is quite porous which means that bacteria can get under the surface of it, so you need to be extra meticulous when cleaning jelly rubber vibrators, to prevent bacteria build-up. Use an anti-bacterial cleaner like the Bondara and Lovehoney ones above and/or use a condom when using it, to protect it and yourself.

REALISTIC FEEL (‘REAL-FEEL’)

Realistic feel (‘real feel’) vibrators are made of trademarked materials that make them feel more fleshy, like real skin. Loveskin is an example (like the Vividly Pink Waterproof Rabbit Vibrator). You can just clean these the normal way, but over time they tend to get a little sticky over time, and feel less soft and supple and … fleshy.

So to keep a real-feel rabbit feeling… real, after cleaning you can sprinkle it with a ‘renewer powder’, like the Fleshlight Renewing powder below. It’s under £6 and will more than repay itself in prolonging the life of your vibrator.

You can use cornflour too, but DO NOT USE TALCUM POWDER. Using talc on sex toys may be linked to health problems, and research is still ongoing, so until there’s conclusive proof that it cannot be harmful, don’t use it on your rabbit.

SILICONE

Like ‘real feel’ vibrators, silicone rabbit vibrators may also benefit from a dusting of renewer powder or cornflour from time to time, to keep the surface from hardening or absorbing too much moisture.

 

Fleshlight sex toy renewal powder

£5.99

Fleshlight Renewing Powder 118ml

Originally created for use on the ‘fleshlight’ (vagina disguised as a flashlight, in case you were unaware), this is great for use on all ‘realistic feeling’ vibrators – such as Loveksin, Cyberskin etc.

Just sprinkle a thin layer all over the ‘skin’ once the vibrator has been washed and dried, every few times you use it, to keep the ‘skin’ feeling soft and fleshy.

Also useful to use on silicone vibrators occasionally too. And not at all expensive at only £5.99.
