Sex toys are made of many different materials such as PVC, TPE, TPR, ABS, Glass, Silicone, Metal etc. Each of these materials has its own properties and uses in sex toys.

MoodTime Storing Sex Toys In Socks

Storing your sex toys

Make sure your toys are properly covered when stored. Why? You could get dust, crumbs, and even pet hair on your sex toy but worst of all certain materials can damage, melt or stain your toy. Make sure that each sex toy is individually stored and wrapped, best (and most important) way to store sex toys is to wrap each one in its own piece of fabric. Take care of your batteries and cords, too. Remove the batteries from your toy to help them last longer and prevent them leaking, wrap cords neatly to prevent them becoming damaged.
