Review: Afterglow Toy Tissues

The Afterglow Toy Tissues are extremely convenient antibacterial toy wipes. While they include ingredients I would shun a lubricant for including I can forgive that mainly because I always wash my any toy in between using an Afterglow and using it on a person again to be on the safe side, but I always wash my toys before using them anyway. There is also a question as to how much of these ingredients are actually left on the toy, but since I don’t know I like to err on the side of caution. I would definitely not recommend these being used for anything other than toys, they are not meant to be personal freshness wipes or any of that nonsense. For toys, though, they work wonders.

I’ve used these tissues on most body-safe toy types: silicone, metal, wood, glass, plastic, elastomed, and also elastomer/TPE, TPR, and jelly. None of these materials react negatively to it, and they all come out cleaner than before. It even gets cat hair off of silicone! If you have a cat and a silicone toy you know what I’m talking about. I don’t think these should be used in place of a good soap and water rinsing, and especially not to replace complete sterilization, but they definitely do their job and clean your toy for the time being. If you are the type who does not immediately get up and wash your toys after you use them (like just about everyone I know) these definitely have their use.

Prior to receiving this product to review I had experienced another pack of these which ended up getting opened in the back rather than in the front. The package has a resealable flap on the front to keep the moisture in and not dry out the individual tissues. Since this pack was open in the back rather than the front all of the tissues dried out. I was still able to use them by wetting them first and they worked well, but they were nowhere near as convenient. This shouldn’t happen if you make sure to reseal the package. Use my tale as a cautionary one, make sure to always reseal the package before storing to ensure the longest life possible for your Afterglow Toy Tissues.

This current batch of tissues I have now are individually sealed which is far more expensive than the multipack (about 3x as much), but minimizes the risk of drying out the pack before use. It also uses more plastic and comes in a cardboard container, both rather wasteful things. When purchasing in the future I would definitely go for the multipack.

The best use for these is quick cleanup while in the afterglow of an orgasm. No question that is where these toy tissues get their name from. They are highly convenient for cleaning off toys without having to leave the bed, couch, floor, or wherever you happen to be. For those of you not concerned with chemicals in them you don’t have to wash your toys every time after using these, you could skip a wash or two and simply use these instead since they are antibacterial. You could also use them prior to playing with your toys, especially on silicone to get all those little things silicone loves to attract off easily and quickly. They are also excellent for on-the-go fun, should you be somewhere you do not have convenient access to running water.

Overall, I love these, and use them just about every time I use a toy. Which is to say: a lot.

Review: Anti-Bacterial Toy Cleaner

anti-bacterial toy cleaner

After being thoroughly disappointed with the Sex Clean Toy Cleaner I was sent to review I picked up this Anti-Bacterial Toy Cleaner on the fly when at a local shop.

In looking into some of the ingredients, however, I was a little disappointed though not surprised. This toy cleaner uses triclosan to kill bacteria though also has Methylchloroisothiazolinone and Methylisothiazolinone within it both of which are supposed to be somewhat anti-bacterial and both of which are irritants. Granted, this cleaner isn’t going directly on you and only a small part amount of it will be getting on you at all, but that was still a little worrysome.

Due to this I have taken to using the spray cleaner directly after use of a toy for ease of clean-up and the convenience of being able to spray-clean a toy without having to get out of bed post use. However, before using the toy again I make sure to wash it, just to be extra careful about the irritants coming in contact with my sensitive bits. Is this overly cautious? Maybe. However, since I’ve had reactions to chemicals in my cunt before (can we say ow?) I am a fan of erring on the side of caution.

I really do like this spray, however, irritants aside. I admit I haven’t delved into the information on every single ingredient yet, but for the most part I think it’s super convenient and a great way to clean toys. Not everyone is as overly cautious about chemicals as I am as well, and I still rate it at a four regardless of potential reactions. I say, if you’re looking for a toy cleaner spray (and who isn’t?) this is a great one to go for!

Review: Sex Clean Toy Cleaner

sexcleantoycleaner

I’ve been interested in toy cleaner sprays and wipes for quite some time, but never went about getting one until recently. I was attracted to the Sex Clean Toy Cleaner because it advertised as having a natural vegetable base which I also took to mean it wouldn’t have any nasty chemicals in it.

Unfortunately, I was wrong. It does have a natural base but it also has parabens in it, which I’ve talked about in my recent lube reviews. I’m just not a fan of parabens having any sort of contact with my sensitive nether bits.

Supposedly in addition to cleaning your toys Sex Clean Toy Cleaner will also polish and protect your toys. It has a “special embellishing and protecting formula” which is a little strange, and not something I, personally, want my toy cleaners to do. I think cleaners should simply clean the toy not add some extra chemicals to it that polishes and protects them.

Sex Clean Toy Cleaner does, however, clean toys well and conveniently, even with the polishing and even though it’s not anti-bacterial. A few sprays and a quick wiping with a paper towel or something similar and the toy is clean. There’s no worry about getting non-waterproof toys wet and accidentally ruining them.

There’s also no need to get out of bed after a good vigorous toy session, which is the best part. Toys should always be cleaned before and after use to keep them healthy, especially if they are made out of a porous material but even if they aren’t it’s best to keep them clean. I love the idea of a cleaning spray or wipe that alleviates the need to break up the wonderful afterglow to go clean the toy, which made me extra disappointed that I didn’t like this spray.

After being disappointed with the Sex Clean Toy Cleaner I received I went out and bought a bottle of Anti-Bacterial Toy Cleaner (review to come) and although it has more ingredients which I cannot pronounce in it I like it much better. If you are looking for a spray toy cleaner I’d definitely go with the Anti-Bacterial Toy Cleaner instead of the Sex Clean Toy Cleaner unless you have a particular desire for polishing your toys and don’t mind the parabens.

Much thanks to Pink Cherry for letting me review Sex Clean Toy Cleaner!
