Most people probably do a good job when it comes to cleaning their sex toys. Sometimes though, simply rinsing with warm water and a little hand soap may leave behind bacteria, yeast, and fungi – especially if the toy has cracks or crevices where stuff can hide.
To make things safe and sanitary, a few companies, mainly sex toy manufacturers, have developed their own brands of cleaner. Now Bathmate, more noted for producing high-quality penis pumps, has entered the game with “Clean”; a misting toy cleaner with the potential to do the job right.

Both methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone have been used in a variety of products and are affective at destroying harmful microorganisms.
Real World Use
To thoroughly test Clean, I tried it on three different items and materials: a prostate massager, a silicone ball stretcher, and a soft masturbator.
TEST 1 – PROSTATE MASSAGER. This really is the ultimate test for a cleaner. You can’t get much funkier than the anus; and that’s just where this toy goes if you want the most from it.
After using the massager, I rinsed it in warm water then coated it with Clean. Next, I rubbed-in the cleaner for about thirty seconds and rinsed again in warm water.
When dry, I found that the prostate massager looked clean and smelled like new. There was no ass smell or other strange odors and I felt confident that it was as clean as possible.
TEST 2 – SILICONE BALL STRETCHER. This kind of toy usually doesn’t get very dirty. I mainly wanted to test the cleaner on the silicone to see how it fares.
I basically covered the ball stretcher with the cleaner and rubbed it with my fingers. Lastly, I washed it off with warm water and dried it with a towel.
The silicone was left spotless without any residue. Again, Bathmate’s Clean worked perfectly and I see no reason why it wouldn’t work just as well on other silicone sex toys.
TEST 3 – SOFT MASTURBATOR. The Bonnie Rotten masturbator is a sex toy that we reviewed a year or so ago. It’s made of a soft, squishy material called thermoplastic elastomer or rubber (TPE/TPR) and is not the highest quality stuff. For instance, this particular toy has an oily residue that is coming out of the material. You can wash it off but it comes right back.
I wasn’t sure how this toy was going to respond to Clean but it handled it ok. Once I cleaned and dried it, I could see no issues and most, if not all, of the oily residue came off too!
THINGS I NOTICED WHILE USING CLEAN
- Can be used on all types of sex toys.
- Works and smells like a household cleaner.
- It did not irritate my skin.
- It left no odor or residue.
- Try not to breathe the mist because it’s strong, chemically.
Here’s yet another Bathmate product that performs like it should. It cleans and sanitizes, leaves no weird odors or residue, and works on common sex toy materials.
Clean appears to be a worthwhile product that I will continue to use and recommend.A Clean Special Offer>>>
