No, the Kleenex isn’t for the Fleshlight – it’s for you. Cleaning the Fleshlight takes a little more than a quick wipe or two. Open the small-cap all the way and remove the sleeve; if there’s a little gunk on the case it can be wiped off. The important part, obviously, is cleaning the sleeve.
The Short Version
- Run warm water through the sleeve. Don’t use soap or other chemicals. (Optional) Fleshlight has a nice cleaner that will remove and kill any particles that the water doesn’t get.
- Leave the sleeve out to dry. Ideally with some airflow such as a fan or window.
- (Optional) To speed up the drying process and remove any sticky feeling, use some of Fleshlights renewing powder.
- Store in a cool and dark place. Prolonged exposure to high temperatures can cause degradation of the silicone. The suns rays can also have an adverse effect on the silicone if left out for many days.
The Long Version
First things first: do not use soap (and absolutely don’t use a dishwasher). Any soap will cause the sleeve’s material to break down and render it useless. Simply run warm water through it until it’s clean. That may not sound hygienic, but it will do the job. If you’re still concerned, Fleshlight makes an antibiotic cleaning spray that might make you feel better.
After washing, don’t just put the sleeve back in the case and put the Fleshlight away. If it’s still wet, you’ll end up with mold and mildew issues. Leave the sleeve out to dry on its own, ideally in a cool, dry room with a fan blowing on it if necessary. When the sleeve’s completely dry, you’re ready for another go. If you’ve bought multiple sleeves, naturally, you won’t have to wait.
Regular use of a Fleshlight will keep it pretty much in its original state. If you don’t use it for a while, though, the sleeve can start to dry out and get sticky. The best solution is to coat it gently with Fleshlight Renewing Powder (or corn starch), which will restore it to near-new condition.
Care for your Fleshlight properly, and it will give you years of incredible satisfaction. The only possible problem: you’ll love it so much that you’ll find yourself unable to keep yourself from buying more and more Fleshlights and sleeves. An enormous number of the company’s customers own more than one – and after you try it, you’ll understand why.
