How to Clean A Fleshlight: A Comprehensive Guide

Max Boralami

If you're the owner of what people came to commonly call a fleshlight, a.k.a. male masturbator, like a Fleshy™, Tenga, Fleshlight (where the name comes from, no relation to Fleshy), or Kiiroo, congratulations! You're among the many men who know what it's like to experience a lifelike sexual sensation without needing a partner.

But with great pleasure comes great responsibility.

Just like any other sex toy, you need to clean your, uh -- Fleshtoy -- regularly to ensure its longevity and hygiene. In this article, we'll give you a step-by-step guide on how to clean your male masturbator, so that you can keep your favorite toy in tip-top shape.

Why Clean Your Male Masturbator?

Let's be honest here: a Fleshtoy can get pretty dirty if you don't clean it after every use. Semen, lube, and other bodily fluids can get stuck inside the sleeve, which can cause it to smell funky and even lead to the growth of bacteria. If you don't clean your sleeve regularly, you risk damaging it and putting your health at risk. Plus, a clean toy just feels better, and who doesn't want that?

What You'll Need to Clean Your Toy

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of cleaning your toy, let's talk about what you'll need. Here are the things you'll need to prepare:

  • Warm water
  • Toy Cleaning Solution (Fleshy™ Fresh recommended!) (or just use isopropyl alcohol)
  • Toy Renewing Powder (Fleshy™ Renew recommended!) (or just use cornstarch)
  • A towel or paper towels

How to Clean Your Lube Tube (Step-by-Step)

Now that you have everything you need, let's start cleaning your toy.

1. Disassemble Your Guybrator

The first step in cleaning your guybrator is to take it apart. This means removing the sleeve from the case and removing the end cap and the lid (if applicable). Make sure you do this carefully to avoid damaging any parts.

2. Rinse Your Sleeve

Once you've disassembled your diddle stick, rinse the sleeve with warm water. You can use a sink or a shower head for this. Ensure you get all the lube, semen, and other bodily fluids out of the sleeve.

Pro-tip: Flip the sleeve inside out! Then just everything will come off immediately. Washing will only take a few seconds. Then flip it outside-in so it's back to being the way it should be.

3. Apply Cleaning Solution

After rinsing the sleeve, it's time to apply the cleaning solution. You can either use an official brand-provided cleaning solution or just use isopropyl alcohol. Apply the solution to the sleeve and let it sit for a few minutes to break down any remaining fluids.

4. Rinse Again

Once the cleaning solution has had time to work, rinse the sleeve with warm water. Make sure you get all the cleaning solution out of the sleeve.

5. Dry Your Wank Tank

After rinsing the sleeve, it's time to dry it. You can either air dry it or use a towel or paper towels to dry it off. Make sure you get all the moisture out of the sleeve.

6. Apply Renewing Powder

The last step in cleaning your sleeve is to apply renewing powder. This powder helps to keep the sleeve feeling soft and supple. Apply a thin layer of renewing powder to the sleeve and spread it around to make sure it's evenly distributed. And voilà! Your sleeve is clean and ready for action once again. Finally, put it back in the plastic toy!

Tips to Keep Your Masturbation Station Clean and Fresh

Cleaning your toy is just the first step in maintaining its quality. Here are some additional tips to keep your cock tunnel in top condition:

  • Use a water-based lube to avoid any damage to the sleeve.
  • Store your bangthang in a dry, cool place to avoid moisture buildup.
  • Don't use sharp objects to clean your toy, as this can cause damage to the sleeve.
  • Replace your toy if you notice any signs of wear and tear.


Can I use soap to clean my toy?

No, it's not recommended to use soap as it can damage the sleeve. However, some customers do tell us that they prefer to simply flip the sleeve inside out, wash it quickly with soap, and then flip it back, and that they don't see notable degradation of the sleeve. It may depend on the type of soap used.

Can I put my toy in the dishwasher?

No, never put your toy in the dishwasher, as the heat and pressure can damage the sleeve. Also, you eat off those dishes, dude.

Can I share my toy with a partner?

Doctors do not recommended sharing your toy, as this can increase the risk of spreading bacteria and other infections, but since when have doctors ever recommended anything fun? (That was a joke. Please don't do it.)

Can I use any type of lube with my toy?

No, it's recommended to use only water-based lube to avoid any damage to the sleeve. Do not use silicone-based lube, as it degrades the material of the sleeve.

How Often Should I Clean My Fleshlight?

The answer to this question depends on how often you use your silicone streetwalker. If you use it every day, you should clean it after each use. If you use it less frequently, you can clean it every other use or once a week. The important thing is to make sure you clean it regularly to avoid any nasty smells or bacteria growth.

How do I know when it's time to replace my toy?

If you notice any signs of wear and tear, such as holes or tears in the sleeve, it's time to replace your toy or sleeve.


Cleaning your dick diddler may not be the most glamorous task, but it's a necessary one to keep your favorite toy in top condition. By following these steps, you can ensure that your toy stays clean, hygienic, and ready for action whenever you need it.
