Sex dolls have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. They are designed to provide a lifelike sexual experience and can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. One of the most important aspects of owning a sex doll is ensuring that it stays clean, hygienic, and safe to use. In this article, we'll give you a step-by-step guide on how to properly keep your sex doll clean and in top condition for years to come.

How often do you need to clean your sex doll? I recommend cleaning your sex dolls before your first usage to remove any left over factory residue, then after every use moving forward.

Materials You'll Need:

  • Mild antibacterial soap or toy cleaner
  • Warm water
  • Soft cloth or light sponge
  • Antibacterial spray (optional)
  • Baby powder (talcum powder) or cornstarch

Key Takeaways

Here's how to properly clean your sex doll:

1) Clean the surface with a soft cloth and mild antibacterial soap.

2) Clean orifices with a soft cloth and soap, avoiding water in the neck.

3) Disinfect with a sex toy cleaner.

4) Pat dry gently, avoiding heat sources.

5) Apply baby powder for texture maintenance.

6) Clean the wig with shampoo and conditioner.

7) Store in a cool, dry area with plastic wrap.

8) Regularly check for damage.

9) Store separately to avoid deformation.

10) Avoid sharp objects and dark-colored clothing.

Step 1: Clean the Surface of Your Sex Doll

The first step in the sex doll cleaning process is to clean your sex doll's skin. You'll need a soft cloth or light sponge and a mild antibacterial soap or toy cleaner to gently clean your dolls skin without damaging any of her delicate parts. After cleaning the surface of your sex doll, rinse the sponge or cotton cloth with warm water and gently wipe down your sex doll to remove any soap residue. Repeat this process as many times as necessary to make sure your love doll is thoroughly cleaned.

As a side note, do not apply too much pressure to your doll's skin when cleaning or drying your doll as this could lead to your dolls skin tearing. 

Step 2: Clean the Orifices of Your Sex Doll

The mouth, vagina, and anus of your sex doll are orifices that can collect bacteria and other bodily fluids, so it's important to clean them thoroughly. To clean your doll’s orifices, you'll need a soft cloth or sponge and a mild antibacterial soap or sex toy cleaner. Dip a clean soft cotton cloth or sponge into warm water, then gently clean the orifices, being careful not to damage your doll’s delicate internal materials.

After you’re done cleaning your sex doll’s orifices, rinse the cloth or sponge with warm water and gently wipe down the orifices to remove any soap residue. Repeat this process as many times as necessary to make sure the orifices are thoroughly cleaned.

It is important to make sure that any water does not enter the body of your sex doll from her neck and wet the stainless steel skeleton during the cleaning process. This is because once inside your love doll, she will be difficult to completely dry. This could lead to bacteria production and growth within your sex doll, and in serious cases will corrode the internal skeleton of your sex doll, causing immeasurable damage to your sex doll.

Do not immerse your sex doll’s head and neck directly in the water. Your dolls head should not be overly cleaned, you can use a clean cloth or sponge and warm antibacterial soapy water to gently pat down her face, neck, and head. If wiping is not possible, you can use a small amount of non-corrosive cleaner or a adult toy cleaner.

Step 3: Disinfect Your Sex Doll

Once you've cleaned the surface and orifices of your sex doll, it's time to disinfect it. Use an antibacterial spray specifically designed for sex toys and liberally spray your entire sex doll, making sure to get into all the nooks and crannies.

Let the spray sit for the recommended amount of time by the manufacturer before wiping it down with a dry non abrasive cloth or sponge. Repeat this process as many times as necessary to make sure your doll is thoroughly disinfected.

Step 4: Dry Your Sex Doll

After cleaning and disinfecting your sex doll, it's important to dry it thoroughly to prevent mould and bacteria from growing. Use a soft cotton cloth or sponge to gently pat down your sex doll, being careful not to damage any of her delicate parts. Make sure to pat dry gently all of her orifices thoroughly, paying extra attention to drying all of her crevices. Once your sex doll is completely dry, she's ready for use or storage.

Do not use a hairdryer or any other heat source to dry your life size love dolls. After cleaning, you can wipe her with a clean, soft towel and then allow her to air dry naturally or use a fan to blow her lightly with cold air.

Step 5: Maintain the Texture of Your Sex Doll

Finally, it's important to maintain the texture of your sex doll. For silicone or TPE doll, use a powder brush to apply a thin layer of baby powder (talcum powder) or cornstarch to the surface of the doll to keep it feeling soft and supple. Make sure to remove any excess talcum powder.

Wig Cleaning

Your sex doll's wig is an important part of her overall look and style, but over extended periods of time it can get dirty and matted. Cleaning your sex doll's wig is easy, and with a little care, you can keep it looking great for years to come. Here's a quick and simple guide on how to clean your doll's wig.

What You'll Need:

  • Mild shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Wide-tooth comb
  • Soft-bristled brush
  • Soft towel
  • Hair dryer (optional)
  • Wig stand (recommended)

Step 1: Brush Out Tangles

Start by removing your sex doll's wig and placing it onto a wig stand. Then, using a wide-tooth comb to gently comb out any tangles or knots, working from the bottom of the wig and working up to the roots. Then, use a soft-bristled brush to remove any remaining tangles, being careful not to pull or tug on the hair.

Step 2: Wash the Wig

Fill a basin or sink with lukewarm water and add a small amount of mild shampoo. Place the wig into the water and gently massage the shampoo into the hair with your hands. Be gentle to avoid damaging the wig.

Step 3: Rinse the Wig

Rinse the wig thoroughly with cold water, making sure all traces of shampoo are removed. Repeat this step a few times to ensure the wig is thoroughly rinsed out and clean.

Step 4: Condition the Wig

After washing, add a small amount of conditioner to the wig and work it in evenly. Leave the conditioner in for a few minutes, then rinse it out with cold water.

Step 5: Dry the Wig

Gently squeeze out the excess water from the wig and lay it flat on a towel. Roll up the towel, pressing on the wig to remove more water. Avoid wringing or twisting the wig, as this can cause damage. Use a hair dryer on a low and cool setting to speed up the drying process if desired. Keep the dryer moving and don't hold it too close to the wig. Otherwise, allow the wig to air dry naturally.

Step 6: Style the Wig

Once the wig is dry, you can style it as desired. Use a wide-tooth comb to comb through the hair and a soft-bristled brush to smooth out any tangles.

You could also use hair products like mousse or hairspray to hold the style in place. Though, keep in mind you will have to clean these products out if you do use any of them.

Storage Instructions

Your doll is a valuable investment and you want to make sure it stays in great condition for as long as possible. But, where do you store it? Don't worry, it's not rocket science. Here's a simple method on how to store your sex doll to keep it looking its best. If you’d like a more detailed article check out our article “how to store your sex doll”.

What You'll Need:

  • Clean towel or blanket
  • Pillows or foam blocks
  • Plastic wrap or storage bag
  • Cool, dry storage area

Step 1: Protect her Body and Limbs

To protect your sex doll's body and limbs during storage, wrap each limb in a clean towel or blanket. Use pillows or foam blocks to prop up the limbs and prevent bending or warping.

If you're short on space, it is best if you could disassemble your sex doll and wrap each part in a clean towel or blanket and store them separately.

Step 2: Wrap it Up

Once your doll is all wrapped up, it's time to wrap her up. Use plastic wrap or a storage bag, making sure the plastic is firm and the bag is sealed to keep out dust and moisture.

Step 3: Choose a Cool, Dry Storage Area

Pick a cool, dry storage area, away from direct sunlight and moisture. A closet, attic, or basement will do as long as it's clean and dry. If you're storing your doll for a long time, consider adding some desiccant packets (silica gel packets) to your doll’s storage area to absorb moisture and keep your doll dry.

Step 4: Check on Your Doll Regularly

Even with proper storage, it's a good idea to check on your doll from time to time to make sure it's still in great condition. Open the storage bag or remove the plastic wrap and inspect your doll for any signs of damage or wear. If you notice any issues, take care of them before they become a bigger problem.

A Few More Tips For Storing Your Sex Doll

TPE is a relatively soft material, so when you are not using your sex doll, please ensure that your sex doll is placed in a separate space (not on top of or making contact with other things) to ensure that the doll is not squeezed by external forces. Prolonged exposure to too much pressure may lead to deformation of your sex doll’s body, which may be irrecoverable, or even risk tearing.

Keep your sex doll away from sharp objects as they can easily damage your sex doll and cut into your sex doll skin.

I suggest storing your doll without clothing on (especially not tight clothing). But if you insist. TPE is a porous material where patterns or dark coloured clothing could stain your sex doll skin (if your doll is already stained don't worry! a TPE stain removal cream can help to remove stains if you act quickly). So, it is best to avoid these types of clothing and use white or lighter-coloured clothing.

Do not use newspapers, cardboard boxes, and other items with ink prints to wrap the doll, it is recommended to use bubble wrap and other materials.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, proper cleaning and maintenance are key to extending the lifespan of your sex doll and ensuring that she remains hygienic and safe to use. By following these steps, you can keep your sex doll in great condition for years to come. It's important to remember that different love dolls are made of different materials and thus have different cleaning requirements. Always consult your sex doll manufacturer's instructions before cleaning your doll.

Additionally, it's a good idea to clean your doll after every use to prevent bacteria and other harmful substances from building up. After cleaning your sex, you should also take care of her properly by storing her in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and other sources of heat. Keeping your doll in a well-ventilated area will also help prevent mould and mildew from forming.
