Can You Clean a Sex Doll with Bleach?

Posted by Anna Bergeron on

A sex doll can be a great companion for anyone. One thing that’s sure to happen over time though is that your sex doll is going to get a bit dirty. To combat this, you should of course be cleaning your sex doll after every single use. But what do you use to clean them?

One thing many people think about trying is bleach. Is this a good idea? Well, you’re about to find out!

Is Your Toy Porous or Non-Porous?

The first big thing you need to know before you decide whether or not to use bleach on your sex doll is whether or not it is porous. A porous object is something where the pores are large enough that bacteria is able to seep through the surface and become stuck inside the material. Conversely, non-porous objects have much smaller pores, so only smells will be able to get inside the material.

This is an important distinction to make. Using very strong cleaning fluids on a porous object means that the fluid can get inside the pores and remain there. It’s very hard to get something out of a porous object once it’s got into the surface of the material.

So, You Can Only Use Bleach on Non-Porous Sex Dolls?

Short answer. Yes

The longer answer is a little more complicated. Non-porous objects are able to be completely sterilised. The materials that fit the bill are silicone, hard plastic, and medical grade TPE. Out of these, silicone will be the one you most commonly find used in sex dolls. There are a few companies that sell dolls made of medical grade TPE, but these are few and far between. Most TPE is actually porous.

So, once you’ve established that your sex doll is completely non-porous, then you can use bleach to clean them, right? Well again, it’s not a super simple answer. Generally, silicone can be completely disinfected with bleach. The other materials can’t handle as much bleach, so you need to make a solution of around 10% bleach and 90% water to dilute it.

Can You Use Bleach on Porous Sex Dolls?

This is something you should avoid. The bleach can become absorbed into the surface of the porous material, and even after rinsing and washing the bleach won’t fully come out. When you come to use it again the bleach will still be present and may irritate your genitals.

After Using Bleach on Your Sex Doll

Even if your doll is suitable to be cleaned with bleach, you shouldn’t instantly start using it again. You need to give it a wash with soap and water afterwards to get any leftover bleach off. You should never let the bleach air dry on the sex doll, and never heat up the bleach.

Just like when you clean with any other cleaning products, you still need to make sure that your sex doll is completely dry before you put it away. It doesn’t matter how clean you get it, if moisture is able to get trapped and go mouldy in between uses, then it’s not going to be very good for you.
