How to clean a Fleshlight

As fun as having a Fleshlight is, it does come with certain responsibilities. One of them and the most important one is learning how to clean a Fleshlight properly as well as maintaining it.

That’s why I decided to write you a detailed guide about Fleshlight care that will cover the essentials of Fleshlight care.

At first, it may seem like an annoying chore, however, with time it will become as simple as brushing your hair or cleaning your teeth in the morning.

Before we start, take a look at this picture of a moldy Fleshlight. I know it’s disgusting but I feel like I needed to show it to you. I’m sure that after seeing it, you no longer question why you need to properly wash your Fleshlight after each use. So, let’s find out how to clean Fleshlight pocket pussies.

How to Clean a Fleshlight?

Basically, there are two main options for proper Fleshlight cleaning. There is an official way, recommended by Fleshlight and an alternative way, chosen by many guys around the world. I’ll cover them both in this article.

Official Fleshlight Cleaning Method

Let’s start with the official cleaning method that I found on the official Fleshlight blog.

First, here’s a list of products that you will need in order to ensure proper Fleshlight care:

Each of these cleaning supplies costs around 10 dollars, however, if you buy them together, you can actually benefit from a generous discount.

Now that we have the required products sorted out, let’s move on to the actual Fleshlight cleaning process.

How to Clean a Fleshlight The Official Way

Here is a detailed step by step guide that will teach you how to clean Fleshlight products the official way:

  1. First, you need to take your Fleshlight apart. Since all of the toys are built in the same manner, you will have the case, the sleeve and the caps. To remove the sleeve, pull it from the wider case end. To remove the caps, simply unscrew them.
  2. Once your toy is disassembled, you need to soak each part in warm water. Also, you have to give special attention to the sleeve as it is the part of the Fleshlight that assembles all the body fluids. Once you’re done soaking it in warm water and all the body fluids are washed out, put the sleeve in hot water. Don’t keep it too long and don’t use soap.
  3. Get your Fleshwash and spray the sleeve inside and out. Let it soak for several minutes and rinse thoroughly.
  4. Place the sleeve in a warm and dry place and let it dry. Don’t use a hairdryer or radiator ant other high-warmth objects to speed up the drying process. It could compromise the SuperSkin texture.
  5. Contrary to the sleeves, you can use alcohol and soap to properly clean the caps and the case. However, make sure they’re completely clean and dry before you reassemble the Fleshlight.
  6. If you have some Fleshlight Renewing Powder, apply a thin layer of it to the sleeve. No need to rinse. The Renewing Powder will help you ensure that your Fleshlight remains as new for a long time.
  7. You can re-assemble your Fleshlight once everything is clean and dry.

As you can see, learning how to clean a Fleshlight the official way is very easy. Using the official method ensures the longevity of your newly acquired sex toy.

The only downside is that you need to spend some extra cash on official Fleshlight cleaning and maintenance supplies. However, the investment pays off, as your toy stays as new for a long time.

How to Clean a Fleshlight The Non-Official Way

Many guys chose to clean their Fleshlighs with 70% isopropyl alcohol.

Note: 70% isopropyl alcohol is non-drinkable. If you drink it, it could kill you. If you decide to use it, keep it in a safe place and properly labeled.

Some guys choose to use this method in order to save money. Others claim that it cleans the Fleshlights even better.

I tried both ways – the results are similar. Yet, I prefer the official method. Somehow, I feel like if something breaks, I can blame Fleshlight and not myself.

So, let’s see how to clean a Fleshlight the non-official way. Here’s your detailed guide:

  1. First, you need to take your Fleshlight apart. Since all ofthe toys are built in the same manner, you will have the case, the sleeve and the caps. To remove the sleeve, pull it from the wider case end. To remove the caps, simply unscrew them.
  2. Once your toy is disassembled, you need to soak each part in warm water. Also, you have to give special attention to the sleeve as it is the part of the Fleshlight that assembles all the body fluids. Once you’re done soaking it in warm water and all the body fluids are washed out, put the sleeve in hot water. Don’t keep it too long and don’t use soap.
  3. Get your 70% isopropyl alcohol and clean the sleeve inside and out. For this method, no rinsing is needed.
  4. Place the sleeve in a warm and dry place and let it dry. Don’t use a hairdryer or radiator ant other high-warmth objects to speed up the drying process. It could compromise the SuperSkin texture.
  5. Contrary to the sleeves, you can use alcohol and soap to properly clean the caps and the case. However, make sure they’re completely clean and dry before you reassemble the Fleshlight.
  6. You can re-assemble your Fleshlight once everything is clean and dry.

As you can see, cleaning Fleshlights the non-official way is pretty easy and required only getting 70% isopropyl alcohol.

On the one hand, it’s cheaper, on the other – no one knows if it’s trustworthy in the long term. That’s why I’ll stick to the official method.

How to Dry a Fleshlight?

If you’re wondering whether drying a Fleshlight is complicated, the answer is no.

To properly dry your Fleshlight, you literally need to do nothing. Just put it in a clean warm place and give it enough time.

Never assemble the Fleshlight before it dries completely. Moist dark places are perfect for mold and other nasty bacteria to grow. Remember the picture from the introduction? Yes, you don’t want that.

Honestly, the nastiest thing I’ve ever seen are dirty sex toys.

Fleshlight Care Importance

As you probably already understood – giving your Fleshlight proper care is a must.

There’s no such thing as ‘I’m too lazy to clean after I cum’. Please don’t bullshit yourself and clean it. Otherwise, you can end up with nasty infections that will not only make it difficult to pee and impossible to have sex but can even interfere with your ability to have kids.

Sex hygiene is not a joke. It’s not important if you’re doing it alone or with a partner, you still need to be mindful.

Fleshlight Cleaning Don’ts

While there are a couple of methods that you can use for Fleshlight cleaning, there are several things you need to avoid using with Fleshlight.

According to the official website, here is the Fleshlight’s Don’ts:

  • Do not use any alcohol or alcohol-based products on the sleeve. Using alcohol or its products can cause the material to deteriorate over time. Then you will have to buy a replacement one.
  • Do not microwave it. Do not boil it. Doing so will result in breaking down the integrity of the material.
  • Do not leave water or any other fluids within the sleeve for a longer period of time.
  • Don’t skip a wash
  • When purchasing powder for your toy, avoid talcum powder. So, skip the baby isle. The powder needs to be cornstarch-based. Naturally, the products that are made especially for Fleshlight products are your safest choice.

As you can see from the list, even though Fleshlight is not high-maintenance, it’s still sensitive to specific substances.

That’s why you should memorize this list or just stick to the proper Fleshlight cleaning routine.

Products for Fleshlight Care

Overall, there are 3 main products that you can use for Fleshlight care. Two of them are produced by Fleshlight themselves. The third one can be found in a drug store.

Products for Fleshlight care:

  • Fleshwash – anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner for proper Fleshlight sleeve and other sex toys care.
  • Fleshlight Renewing Powder – helps to make sure that each time you use your Fleshlight sleeve it feels like a new one.
  • 70% isopropyl alcohol – often used a substitute for Fleshwash. Even though it has the word alcohol in the title, it’s strictly non-drinkable. If you consume it, it can end in death.

Final Words on How to Clean a Flashlight

In order to ensure the longevity of your Fleshlight – follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
