Afterglow Sex Toy Wipes

I usually try to steer people away from using sex toy cleaning sprays and wipes. Its just as easy to use soap and water, better for the environment, and more effective at cleaning your toys. Its not like these sprays and wipes have magical ingredients that somehow clean your toys better. And if you're sensitive, they could actually make things worse for you by having ingredients in them that could actually cause infections or allergic reactions. So before you use a sex toy go wash it.

However, I also realize that there are times when soap and water might not be very convenient. So there are times when these things can actually come in handy. Lets say you're camping and there's no running water nearby or you live with your parents and it might not be a convenient time to skip off to the bathroom, sex toy in hand for the world to see.

You should also actually wash your toys after you use them and before you put them away. And this is where I really understand the laziness factor. You just had a mind blowing orgasm and all you want to do is pass out, the last thing you want to do is get your naked ass out of bed to go clean your toy even though you know that it will prolong its life. You especially know that if you used an anal toy that it is rather gross to be leaving something like that around, what with the possibility of e coli.

So there are definitely times when toy wipes can be a really good idea. And that is why I was very happy when Babeland sent me Afterglow Tissues. These are great for those times when you just can't make it to the bathroom to wash your toys. They're also great for getting all those sex juices and lube off of your hands and other body parts.

One thing I have to add though is that you should also be cleaning your toys with soap and water. These wipes really are only for those in between times when your toy has already been cleaned, but its been sitting in your drawer attracting cat fur and lint (and if you own a silicone dildos and a cat you know that this can happen just in the walk from the bathroom). Don't expect these wipes to do the job each and every time. Find the time to clean your toys on a regular basis.
