Fleshlight Care
Male Masturbation Tools

We have Fleshlight Guide which covers how to use a Fleshlight, however, this article will review cleaning and care as well as some of the things that you should know about Fleshlights including why over 5 million men have purchased them as well as why some men simply prefer other masturbation sleeves.

The Fleshlight is made with a material called Real Feel Super Skin®. This is a material that the manufacturer of Fleshlights (ILF) has patented. It is just like other skin type products such as Cyberskin (another trademarked type of material).

Combining Sex Toys

Skin-like sex toys are trademarked names for a variation of soft Thermo Plastic Elastomer, which is a mixture of polyvinyl chloride and silicone. TPE is a polymer that has many uses, one being sex toys. The major pro to this type of material is that it feels squishy and soft like skin. The con to the material is that it easily harbors bacteria and therefore is high maintenance to care for when it comes to cleaning it properly.

The only effective way to clean a Fleshlight is to use a spray-on or soaking sex toy cleaner. Fleshlight makes a spray-on one called Fleshwash, but any of them will work with a Fleshlight. Because most sex toy cleaners contain Triclosan or Propylene Glycol, you will want to make sure you always wash off the sex toy cleaners. This is true for any use of a sex toy cleaner as they can irritate the skin if left on.

The reason that a spray-on cleaner or cleaner that you soak your Fleshlight in is used is that it allows the cleaner to get into the pores of your Fleshlight to kill harmful bacteria. It will also help prevent bacteria building up in-between uses.

One thing you do not want to do is use soap on a Fleshlight or any other skin-like sex toy. The reason is that the soap gets into the little pores of the material and is near impossible to completely remove once it gets in there. It may feel and look like it is gone, but we have men contact us later after using soap to clean it saying that the second they tried using it with a lubricant it started to lather up into a soapy mess.

Another thing to remember about skin-like materials like the Fleshlight, is that it is going to feel tacky to the touch once the powder is removed by washing it. Fleshlight has powder available to re-powder the product when you have washed and dried it called Renewing Powder.

The reason that you would keep the material powdered is because it will help dust and lint from clinging to the naturally sticky material that the Fleshlight is made out of and it will make it feel like skin again. However, some men do not care if it is powdered and store it without being powdered. Basically once the lubricant is applied it feels like lubricated skin; thus the powdering is a step that can be skipped if desired.

One thing to keep in mind is that you are going to want to make sure that the product is air dried and that you are not putting it away wet. If you do that it will become a perfect place for mold and fungus to grow so proper cleaning and storage is important.

Skin-like sex toy material like Fleshlight's Real Feel Super Skin® can tear easily. This means that you will want to be careful screwing the lid onto the Fleshlight being careful to make sure that none of the skin material is sticking out as the lid can cut into the skin material and take off the sides of it. You will also want to be gentle with it when you take it out of the case to clean it so as to not tear it by pulling on it too hard.

While Real Feel Super Skin® is not the most durable material or easiest to care for it is very real feeling when powdered and dry or well lubricated and is a big part of why Fleshlights sell so well. We were one of the first retailers to carry Fleshlight and have always been able to match any price of the manufacturer.

We are also an authorized dealer which means that you are covered under our 30 day store warranty and Fleshlight's 90 day warranty when you purchase from us. Read more about why you do not purchase a Fleshlight from an non-authorized dealer.
