Care and Usage Tips for Your Intimate Toys

Care and Usage Tips for Your Intimate Toys - STV's Expert Advice

Caring for Your Toys:

Proper care ensures a long-lasting and enjoyable experience with your intimate toys. At Sex Toys Vancouver (STV), we've got you covered with some essential care tips:

1. Cleaning Your Toys

We highly recommend using a toy cleaner specifically designed for safe and effective cleaning. Consider option like Natural Toy Cleaner. Alternatively, you can use mild, fragrance-free soap and warm water, ensuring you check your toy's specific cleaning instructions.

2. Silicone Toys and Lubricants

When using silicone toys, be cautious not to combine them with silicone-based products. Never use silicone toys with silicone lube! Avoid oil-based products like massage oils or lotion-enriched hand soaps unless your toy is made of hard plastic, metal, or glass.

3. Protect Mechanical Parts

Shield vibrator cords and mechanical parts from water, and avoid bending the cord near the base. It's recommended to clean all toys before their first use and after each subsequent use. Alternatively, save time with easy cleanup by using an unlubricated condom with your toy. Remember to remove batteries from your toys after use.

4. Storage

For safe storage, keep your toys in a dry, dust-free environment.

Exploring Lubricants:

Understanding the different types of lubricants is essential for a comfortable and pleasurable experience. At STV (Sex Toys Vancouver), we offer insights into three main lubricant bases:

1. Water-Based Lubricants

Compatible with all toys and condoms, water-based lubricants are the most versatile. They won't stain your sheets and offer excellent moisturization. Our popular options include Anal Original Lube and Mood Lube Water Based.

2. Hybrid Lubricants

Hybrid lubricants are primarily water-based but contain a small percentage of silicone. They provide a similar feel and longevity to silicone while remaining toy-safe. Explore options like Lelo Moisturizing Lubricant and Intimina Feminine Moisturizer.

3. Silicone-Based Lubricants

Silicone-based lubricants are not compatible with silicone toys but are safe for use with glass, stainless steel, aluminum, and ABS plastic. They are known for their long-lasting, silky-smooth feel. Our top choices are Original Silicone Lubricant and Woman Fragrance Free Silicone Based Lube.

4. Oil-Based Lubricants

Oil-based lubricants should not be used with silicone toys or condoms. However, they are safe for use with glass, stainless steel, and aluminum. They are ideal for intercourse and can double as massage oils. Our recommendations include Edible Massage Oil.

Battery vs. Rechargeable Toys

Discover the differences between battery-operated and rechargeable toys:

Battery-Operated Toys

Battery-operated toys are more cost-effective initially but may require frequent battery replacements. They often feature higher vibration frequencies, making them suitable for beginners. Check out popular options like the Luxe Purity G Vibe or The Original Bunny Kiss Vibe.

Rechargeable Toys

Rechargeable toys have a higher upfront cost but boast longer lifespans and environmental friendliness. Most rechargeable toys offer stronger motors and various vibration settings. Explore top choices such as the Womanizer Premium and the Satisfyer Pro 3 Air Pulse Stimulator + Vibration.

Caring for Your Lingerie

Extend the life of your lingerie by following these tips:

1. Handwash Delicates

We strongly recommend handwashing your delicate lingerie items with lukewarm water. Always refer to the care instructions on the garment for specific care recommendations.

Understanding Stimulation Types

Learn the difference between external, internal, and dual stimulation toys for a more satisfying experience:

  • External: These toys provide external clitoral stimulation.
  • Internal: Toys that you insert into the vagina.
  • Dual: These toys combine both internal and external stimulation, targeting the clitoris and vaginal walls.


Electro-stimulation, or electro-sex, introduces electrical currents during intimate moments. It's not just for BDSM enthusiasts, as it can enhance pleasure by stimulating nerve endings. Ensure safety by avoiding use with heart conditions, pregnancy, and above the belt. Explore our Fetish Fantasy Ltd Ultimate Bondage Kit.
