Antibacterial Toy Cleaner by Lelo

Easy, Clean, and Discreet

A little goes a long way with this antibacterial spray, and I’ve found it to be worth every penny. It’s easy to use and very effective. No after-cleansing rinse is required, and it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin or aggravate my frequent UTIs. The 2oz container is safe for airport travel and is very discreet to have in your bedroom. This antibacterial gem has made my experience with toys much easier (and safer).

Packaging
I love my LELO antibacterial spray. The package is very tasteful and discreet; unless someone knows that LELO is a sex toy distributor, they aren’t likely to notice anything different about this product. The bottle is cylindrical and white, with silver and black text and a metallic silver cap. It’s only 2oz, which is a little bit of a disappointment for a $10 product, but it’s lasted me a couple months now, so I’m not complaining. If you need to use a lot of it very often, this might not be as convenient or cost-effective for you. Anything bigger would draw attention, though; I like its small size.Use
According to the directions, all you do is spray it on, wait 5 seconds, and wipe it off with a lint-free cloth or towel. The antibacterial spray is water-based and body-safe, so you don’t need to rinse your toy(s) after cleansing. This is so easy for me, and I love how quick and simple it is. I don’t have to take my toys around the house to get to a sink. I just spritz, wait, and wipe. Presto, clean toys. Just for my own peace of mind, though, I find a time once a week when I’m home alone to wash my toys with soap and water and/or boil them, if applicable for the toy.A quick note: If you’re sharing a toy with a partner(s) or switching from anal to vaginal use, I wouldn’t recommend only using this product. While I don’t doubt the antibacterial properties of this product, I can’t say that it would be safe with 100% certainty. I think it’s always better to be safe than sorry.Materials
Since it’s water-based and body-safe, this antibacterial spray is suitable for use with silicone, rubber, latex, and glass toys. This is pretty much a safe bet for any toy you’ve got! It’s also alcohol-free and pH-balanced, which contributes to its body-safe properties. I don’t want anything funky going anywhere near my ladybits, thanks.

(Note: I don’t have any allergies to these products, but I do have sensitive skin, and this doesn’t bother my skin or my vagina at all.)

Taste/Aroma
I found that this product has a bit of a scent to it. It’s not very much like most antibacterial cleaners, because it’s alcohol-free, but it does have a bit of a clinical scent to it. Almost like…anyone ever smelled silly putty or home-made gack/ooze/other squishy things? It’s a little like that, which is really hard to describe. It also has something of an aftertaste. That’s not really an issue for me, but it might be aversive to some. The taste isn’t strong, though; it’s just a mild tang.

Experience
My younger sister (she’s 19 now) came into my room once to chat, and my LELO antibacterial spray was out on my headboard. She asked me what it was, and I responded, “It’s an alcohol-free antibacterial.”
She said, “Oh, so it like, doesn’t dry out your hands?? That’s awesome!”
….”Um…Yep, that’s it.”She used it on her hands and went on her way. I was trying so hard not to laugh…. Had she read the directions on the back, she would have figured it out, but that text is so tiny that she didn’t bother. It was absolutely hilarious.
Follow-up commentary
I still like it 2 months after original review
I do still like this product. It’s a convenient size, it’s discreet, it’s not strong-smelling, it gets the job done, and it doesn’t irritate my skin. It’s extremely convenient and easy-to-use. After more than two months of using this product about once a day, I still have a fair bit of it left, so I can’t even complain about the fact that it’s only 2 oz!My only hang-up about the product is that the cap broke on me. Something came unscrewed and the o-ring was dislodged, but I managed to get everything back in place and put back on correctly. The water-tight cover has two parts: the plastic outer part, and a softer inner part that gives it drag and a bit of a seal. The two parts separated, but it was really easy to superglue the pieces back together. It’s good as new again, but it was kind of a pain. Oh, well. These things happen. I’m pretty sure I’ve dropped it a fair few times, so I can’t even blame it on faulty design or manufacturing, thanks to my endless clumsiness.I will definitely add this product to my next order again! -I’ve gotten it again, and I still love it. No cap breakage this time or weird squirting malfunctions, so all is well. I might just keep the bottle and fill it with before & after once I try that toy cleaner :P
