How To Clean Your Silicone Sex Doll: A Complete Guide

Your doll does so much more for you than provide sexual stimulation, so you’ll want to take good care of it to ensure its longevity. In this article, we’ll share a comprehensive guide to cleaning a silicone sex doll so that you can maintain and get the most out of your doll.

Why You Should Clean Your Silicone Sex Doll

Silicone sex dolls can be very expensive, making them a big investment for a lot of people. Failing to clean your sex doll properly can result in a whole host of problems such as mold, bad smells, or damage to the material. Such issues can result in the doll or its parts needing replacement or more expensive maintenance. So for the sake of your doll’s lifespan, your own personal hygiene, and your bank account, it’s worthwhile learning how to clean it properly.

How Often Should You Clean A Sex Doll?

We recommend giving your doll’s body a deep clean every two weeks, though this depends on your usage. If you are having sex with your doll, it’s advisable to clean the holes out with every use.

You should also clean your doll before its first use to get rid of any residue that may be left over from the manufacturing process.

What Materials Do You Need To Clean A Silicone Sex Doll?

Some manufacturers sell full cleaning kits to make cleaning your doll easier, but such a kit is not entirely necessary. In fact, basic cleaning materials are cheap to source and can achieve a similar result. Here’s what you’ll need:

How To Clean Your Silicone Sex Doll’s Body: Step By Step

One benefit of silicone sex dolls is that they are heat resistant, so you can use hot water to clean them. You can even clean your doll in the shower or bath to make things easier and less messy. Here’s a step-by-step guide to cleaning your silicone sex doll’s body:

  1. Remove the doll’s head and wig.
  2. Dip a light sponge in antibacterial soap and warm water, then very gently wash the doll’s body to preserve the skin.
  3. Be careful not to submerge the doll’s head or neck underwater – this can result in a buildup of rust in the screws.
  4. Dry your doll using a non-abrasive cloth or towel.
  5. Apply baby powder to the doll’s skin to remove any leftover residue and reduce stickiness.

How To Clean The Doll’s Mouth, Vagina, and Anus

It’s extra important to clean your doll’s holes properly to prevent bacteria and mold from growing inside.

There are a couple of ways to clean out your doll’s holes – using either an irrigation tool or sponge swabs:

Using An Irrigation Tool

  1. If you’re using a vaginal irrigator that doesn’t connect to a tap, simply fill it up with water first and place the irrigation end inside your doll’s holes. Some water might spill out during this step, so you may want to place a towel underneath your doll or wash it in the bath or shower.
  2. Turn on the tap or start squeezing the irrigator to flush out your doll’s holes.
  3. Fill the hole completely with water then hold the doll so that the water naturally falls out with gravity. You might need to give your doll a little shake to remove all the water.
  4. Insert a dry sponge swab or tampon to get rid of any excess water.

Using Sponge Swabs

  1. Dip your sponge swab in warm water and coat it with antibacterial soap.
  2. Insert the swab into the hole and rub the area gently to remove any dirt.
  3. Throw away the swab and repeat steps 1 and 2.
  4. After two rounds of swabbing and cleaning, the holes should be ready to dry off. You can do this by inserting another dry sponge swab or a tampon.

How To Clean The Doll’s Head

  1. Remove the doll’s head and wig.
  2. Dip a light sponge in antibacterial soap and warm water then very gently dab the doll’s face, avoiding the eyes.
  3. The face is a particularly detailed area, so we recommend allowing it to dry on its own. You can pat the face with a dry non-abrasive cloth to get rid of extra moisture.

How To Dry Your Doll

Allowing your silicone sex doll to dry after washing is absolutely crucial as the doll is more prone to damage when it is wet.

You can dry your doll’s body by patting the skin with a non-abrasive cloth. At no point should you rub the doll dry – this can damage the detailing and tear the skin.

You should allow your doll to air dry for a few hours after to ensure no moisture remains. After that, you can apply baby powder to soften the skin and reduce stickiness.

How To Clean Your Doll’s Wig

If your silicone sex doll’s wig is made from real human hair, you should wash it with sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. This will increase the longevity and softness of the wig while making it easier to style.

  1. Place the wig on a stand if possible for easier washing.
  2. Dampen the hair with water then apply a nickel-sized dollop of shampoo to your hands.
  3. Lather it up slightly between your palms before squeezing sections of the hair gently, being careful not to rub it too hard.
  4. Rinse the hair thoroughly using lukewarm water.
  5. Squeeze a nickel-sized amount of conditioner onto your hands then massage it onto the hair, starting from the ends and working upwards. You may need to use a little more conditioner if the wig is particularly long.
  6. Rinse the conditioner out of the hair, making sure to get rid of any residue.
  7. Leave the wig to air dry completely before gently combing through the hair from ends to roots to get rid of any knots.

How To Avoid Stains On Your Silicone Sex Doll

Although silicone is harder to stain than TPE, it is still possible. In fact, stains are much more difficult to remove from silicone dolls, so you’ll want to avoid staining the material at all costs.

Silicone is susceptible to color absorption, meaning dye from the clothes they wear might transfer to the skin. To avoid this, it’s super important to wash your doll’s clothes thoroughly before dressing them. You should also ensure that the doll’s clothes are fully dry before putting them on.

The absorption of the doll’s skin means that you should not put anything near the doll that is likely to stain – so no fruit, bath bombs, or makeup.

Removing Stains

If you stain your silicone doll, you can clean it gently with a soft cloth and soap or oil.

As a last resort ONLY, you can try to get rid of the stain using very fine sandpaper. You should make sure the area is well-oiled and lubricated before gently sanding over it. You should take extreme care when using this method – you simply want to detach the stain from the silicone, not erode the silicone.

You can also purchase an anti-stain dress or full body suit to protect your silicone doll from stains when wearing clothes.

Storing Your Silicone Sex Doll

It’s important to store your doll correctly when not in use. This will increase its longevity and help prevent damage.

We recommend storing your doll in a storage bag on a hanging bracket to protect it from dust and sunlight, which can discolor and degrade the silicone. You should also check that the storage bag is made of a suitable material that won’t stain your doll’s skin.

If you’re taking your doll on vacation, you can store it discreetly in a wheeled storage case to ensure it reaches your destination safely.

What NOT To Do When Cleaning Your Silicone Sex Doll

  • Never submerge your doll’s head in water and do not get water on the eyes.
  • Don’t use perfume on your doll.
  • Don’t dress your doll in dark clothes or other clothes which haven’t been thoroughly washed/are likely to stain.
  • Don’t use harsh cleaning products or detergent and use sulfate-free hair-care products when cleaning the wig.
  • Don’t use heated appliances to dry your doll.
  • Don’t rub the skin too hard when cleaning or drying.

Tips For Taking Care of Your Silicone Sex Doll

  • To make cleaning easier and less messy, you can use a condom during sex with your doll.
  • Choose a doll with a removable vagina for easier cleanup after sex.
  • You can use tampons to help dry the doll’s holes.
