How to Clean a Fleshlight

There are 5 easy steps to cleaning your Fleshlight. It should be cleaned after each use.

1. Remove the case

Remove both the top and bottom caps of your Fleshlight and slide the sleeve out of the case. The case can be washed with hot, soapy water and set aside to dry.

2. Flush the canal with hot water

Run warm water through your Fleshlight sleeve to rinse out any water-based lubricant or bodily fluids. Fleshlight recommend that you do not use soap or hot water on your Fleshlight as they can degrade the SuperSkin material.

Fleshlight recommend their own brand cleaner, Fleshlight Fleshwash Sex Toy Cleaner. You can also use other specialist sex toy cleaners like Lovehoney Fresh Sex Toy Cleaner.

4. Dry the Fleshlight

The Fleshlight sleeve needs to be completely dry before it's put away. You can either leave the sleeve in a warm, dry location or towel it dry by pushing a microfibre cloth through the canal. Remember, the more textured your sleeve is the longer it will take to get completely dry.

After washing and drying, you may notice that the Fleshlight SuperSkin material feels sticky or tacky. That's normal, but to restore the soft texture of the sleeve, dust it with Fleshlight Powder Renewer. The next time you come to play, the Fleshlight will feel as silky smooth as the day you bought it.
