Make sure to get your toy wet all over and either use bar soap or a dash of liquid soap, gently scrub the soap all over the toy and wash it well. Leave it to air dry. It might a minute more but it is definitely worth it and does the job quite well.

  • You can also use toy cleaner sprays to clean the parts of the toy but avoid soap and water as it can certainly damage the build quality of the product. 
  • When you feel like you have generously cleaned up every bit of the toy, simply let it rest and air dry in an isolated spot. 
  • When you can evidently see that the toy is clean and dried up inside out, sprinkle and gently rub a renewer powder on the toy and you’re ready to pack it up.
