How to Clean a Fleshlight to Keep It Fresh, Clean and Safe

How to Clean a Fleshlight to Keep It Fresh, Clean and Safe

While many are under the assumption that a Fleshlight is any kind of male sex toy that’s used to enjoy solo masturbation play similar to that of penetration, this isn’t exactly true. Yes, a Fleshlight is considered a male masturbator, but Fleshlight is actually a brand. 

So, when you see other kinds of male sex toys that are male masturbators, they are not all simply called Fleshlights. There is the one and the only brand, Fleshlight , that is and will always have the official name as being a Fleshlight .

Having said that, Fleshlight is an incredible sex toy brand that’s famous worldwide for the sheer pleasure it produces, and is an award-winning male sex toy brand.

They pride themselves on using material that’s super lifelike, giving you the real feel experience in a body-safe way. They also have a variety of different products that give off different kinds of stimulation, are easy to clean, and are super discrete and portable.

Today’s mission is to show you the light when it comes to cleaning your Fleshlight so that you can keep it for years to come, enjoying endless bouts of pleasure. 

We’ll take a look at:

Why is it important to clean your Fleshlight?

A Fleshlight is a sex toy that’ll keep you coming and coming for years. But only if you always clean it before and after use. This is not a drill, fellas, it really is super important for you to clean your Fleshlight, and let us tell you why…

If you don’t clean your Fleshlight, there is a high chance that mould will form. This is essentially microbes and bacteria that can create a number of health issues such as infections. It really is no picnic in the park. For that reason, it’s super important to clean your sex before and after use… every single time. 

And if you’re sharing your Fleshlight with someone, it’s even more important to clean it in between uses.

How to clean your Fleshlight sleeve

Now that we’ve established that it’s a necessity to clean your Fleshlight, let us guide you on how you can clean your Fleshlight. You can do so in three easy steps.

Step One: Wash Your Fleshlight

You can wash your Fleshlight by removing the sleeve from the case and rinsing the case first. After this, run some warm water through the inner sleeve and allow the water to run through the inner textures. 

It’s at this point that, if you’re using a sex toy cleaner, you can go ahead and sprits some of it on the inside and outside of the sleeve whilst it is still under the warm water. 

Alternatively, you could use isopropyl alcohol. Simply cup one hand on one hole, pour a small amount of isopropyl alcohol in the other, place your other hand over the other hole, swirl it around for about 30 seconds to kill any leftover bacteria, then pour the isopropyl alcohol down the drain.

What’s nice about Fleshlight is that you don’t even need to use soap on the inside sleeve because it’s made of superskin material. A mere thorough wash with warm water is enough.

Step Two: Dry Your Fleshlight

The case of the Fleshlight is easy to dry, and can simply be dried with a clean and dry kitchen towel. The inside however should be placed on a clean kitchen towel, then patted gently dry. 

After this, leave the inner sleeve to air dry. Take note that, the more textured your sleeve is, the longer it’ll need to air dry. Side note: if you opt to use isopropyl alcohol to clean your Fleshlight, it’ll dry faster.

Step Three: Use a Renewing Powder or Cornstarch

If you’d like to renew the softness and supple texture of your Fleshlight, it’s recommended to use a renewing powder or cornstarch for ultimate freshness. 

After time, you may start to notice that your Fleshlight feels a bit tacky or sticky, which is why using one of these two products is such a great idea.

How to clean your Fleshlight case

We briefly mentioned in step one how to clean your Fleshlight case, but going into more detail… cleaning your Fleshlight case is a lot easier and quicker than cleaning the inner sleeve. 

For your Fleshlight case, you can use a little liquid soap and warm water, just giving it a good rinse. We recommend washing the Fleshlight case first, then moving onto the inside sleeve. 

After you’ve washed the case, you can dry it with a clean kitchen towel and then use a bit of paper towel to mop up the excess water, and/or allow it to air dry. 

Note: you should never put your Fleshlight away until it is fully dry.

How to dry your Fleshlight before your next use

We briefly mentioned in step two how to dry your Fleshlight, but because drying the inner sleeve is not the easiest of tasks, we thought we’d run through it again. 

First, you’re going to want to shake off the inner sleeve to make sure that any water that’s inside can drip out. 

After this, finding a space where it can sit vertically with as much potential to dry quickly is best. For example, you could use a dish drying rack or a turned off radiator. This will allow natural air to flow around it. 

We urge you to never use heat to dry your Fleshlight, as you have a high chance of damaging the sleeve.

How to refresh your Fleshlight

We briefly mentioned in step three how to refresh your Fleshlight, but a little reminder is always a good idea. 

So, because of the Superskin material, you may notice that your Fleshlight doesn’t always feel its most supple or smooth. This type of material is one that benefits from a refresh after every clean, so we strongly advise you to use either a refresh powder or cornstarch in order to preserve your Fleshlight.

To do so, you’re going to have to wait until the Fleshlight sleeve is completely 100 percent dry. If your Fleshlight sleeve isn’t completely dry, it can get gummy, which isn’t something you want. Then, once it’s dry, you can sprinkle some renewing powder or cornstarch liberally all over it.

And just like that, step one, two, and three, your Fleshlight is clean, dry, and powdered up! You can go ahead and put it back together and away for safekeeping until your next bout of erotic play.

Before we bid you farewell though, let’s have a quick run through of how you shouldn’t clean your Fleshlight …

How Not to Clean Your Fleshlight

The Superskin material used on the inner sleeve of your Fleshlight is super delicate, and that’s why there are so many meticulous and specific guidelines on how to clean it. We strongly recommend not using any of the below methods to clean your Fleshlight:

  • Using soap on the inner sleeve of the Fleshlight: this will degrade the material, and encourage mould and bacteria. 
  • Using a general sex toy cleaner: the Fleshlight material is so specific it won’t fair well with just a general sex toy cleaner.
  • Using hand sanitiser: using isopropyl alcohol is okay, but using hand sanitiser isn’t. 
  • Using anything other than official refresher powder or cornstarch: other similar items, such as talcum powder, can and most likely will, irritate the genitals.

It’s important that you always use water-based lube with your Fleshlight because the inner sleeve is made of mineral oil, which doesn’t interact well with any other kind of lubricant.
