Easy and Simple Sex Doll Care and Maintenance 

Your doll is an investment.

Think about it. If you’re in the market for your first realistic sex doll, you likely perform some preliminary research to decide if buying a sex doll is right for you. And part of that research includes learning about proper sex doll care and maintenance.

Finding the best ways to care for your sex doll can be a challenge. There are dozens of forums filled with anecdotal and factual advice about 12doll care and maintenance.

You might feel overwhelmed as you comb through article after article, especially if no one seems to agree on the best practices. For example, one might say it’s safe to use perfume on love dolls. But another one warns against it . All of this conflicting information is a huge turnoff.

(By the way, don’t use perfume.)

We know that when it comes to your current (or future) sex doll, taking the right precautions when cleaning her is essential. Not only does proper cleaning protect you from diseases, but it also ensures your doll’s longevity while keeping her looking as good as the day you received her.

Like we said, sex dolls are an investment. So like anything else, make sure you do your research and learn everything you can so you get the most out of your purchase!

So whether you already have a doll or are on the hunt for the perfect one, this handy how-to guide will tell you what you need to know to take care of your sex doll.

When it comes to sex doll care, material matters

One aspect of sex doll care and maintenance is learning about the material that makes up the doll. The amount of time it takes to clean and dry your doll depends on the material.

It’s essential to learn the difference between TPE and silicone adult dolls when considering your purchase because the material will affect cleaning and maintenance, plus day-to-day use.

TPE sex dolls cannot handle steaming hot water or the intense heat from hair dryers. For these types of dolls, use a soft, absorbent towel (like microfiber) to pat her dry. Additionally, make sure the fabric isn’t dark in color, as TPE also has the potential to absorb dyes and stain easily.

Silicone, on the other hand, can handle warm water temperatures and doesn’t stain as easily. But we still advise steering clear from using a hairdryer as you don’t want to risk accidentally melting your sex doll’s skin.

Make a toolkit of all the things you’ll need. It’ll make cleaning and care much more manageable!

  • Comb
  • Antibacterial soap
  • Water
  • Water pump
  • Soft cloth or sponge
  • Dry soft towel or chamois cloth.
  • Powder and brush

General Tips

  • Use a condom during use for easier cleaning
  • Consider buying a love doll with a removable vagina, as this makes cleaning much easier
  • Use tampons or fans to facilitate faster drying for fixed vaginas
  • To clean small areas, a spray bottle with a 1:5 soap to water ratio is ideal
  • It’s best to oil TPE dolls three to four times per year. Do not overdo it, or you may damage her skin.
  • Use a tiny amount of vaseline/petroleum jelly to high-friction spots, like the knees, inner groin, and love hole openings as needed. The oil will prevent friction-related tears.
  • If you intend to store your doll for a long time frame, gently use corn starch to her skin.
  • Never use lubricants, wipes, or perfumes that contain alcohol or silicone.

How To Clean Your Sex Doll

During cleanings, use a mild antibacterial soap. You can use the same soap inside and outside of your doll’s body. Make sure to flush out all of the soap afterward.

Cleaning the body

  1. Use a soft towel to wipe off excess body fluids or lube
  2. If your doll has a removable vagina, take it out
  3. Wash the insert with antibacterial soap and warm water and leave out to air dry
  4. Remove her wig
  5. To clean your doll’s body, spread some towels on your bed, and lay her flat.
  6. Spritz your doll with a spray bottle filled with soap and water and your hands and work the soap into a lather, or use a sponge.

Cleaning the love holes

  1. Use a cleaning water pump or vaginal irrigator. It will make this a much easier (and faster) process while guaranteeing no soap or bacteria is left behind.
  2. A soft, damp cloth with warm soapy water is another option. Make sure to do a thorough job.
  3. Leave your doll’s legs spread somewhat so the openings can dry.
  4. Then, once you’ve towel-dried your doll, apply talcum powder (aka baby powder) or renewal powder to absorb any remaining moisture.
  5. Over-oiling is bad for TPE dolls, but applying a small amount of vaseline to the openings can help prevent tears.

Many people wonder how often they should clean their doll. The short answer: often.

  • Before your first use
  • Total body cleaning once a month
  • Love holes after every use

Give your doll a full-body cleaning at least once a month, no matter what material she is made out of. Never wait long periods of time in between cleaning.

Regularly cleaning the love holes isn’t the best part of sex doll care and maintenance, but it is the most important. Clean them every time you use her.

A quick note about baths and showers:

Regardless of the material, you can bathe or shower with your doll — just make sure you don’t get her head wet! And again, if you have or are thinking about buying a doll made from TPE, double-check the water’s temperature before getting her wet.

When you do take her to the tub or shower to wash her, we advise removing her head and keeping it separate, so you don’t accidentally damage it. Water can leak into the cavities and be very difficult to dry.

If your doll has standing feet features, cover her feet with a plastic bag or try to keep them out of the water. Also, dolls can be very heavy, so we recommend using a shower stool to hold her weight, so neither of you slips or fall.

Cleaning your doll’s head

Washing your sex doll’s head is easier than you think.

  1. Remove her wig (we’ll get to that in a moment). Use the same soap you used on the rest of her body with a warm, damp cloth and rub in circular motions.
  2. Avoid using makeup remover to remove any eyeshadow, mascara, lipstick, etc., as it usually contains oils that her skin will absorb. You don’t necessarily need to remove her makeup, but if you do, use water and soap and take your time doing it.
  3. Once she is nice and clean, gently pat her dry.

Taking care of your sex doll’s wig

Whether your doll’s wig is made from synthetic or human hair, it’s best to treat it as if it was real. Try and wash your doll’s wig at least once a month. Although her body doesn’t produce sweat and oils, these particles can transfer from your doll’s surroundings (including yourself) and onto her.

  1. Remove her wig.
  2. To wash it, use a mild shampoo and gently work the soap into a lather.
  3. Rinse with lukewarm water until the soap is completely gone.
  4. Let it air dry.
  5. Use a comb to brush out knots and tangles.

While a wig stand isn’t mandatory, we strongly recommend having one because it promotes even drying, helps the hair lay how you want, and keeps it in good condition longer.

Rather than blow-drying the wig, let it dry naturally. Once it is totally dry, use a comb and start at the ends. We recommend wooden combs because they don’t cause breakage like plastic ones do. If you hit any tangles, gently work at them as you work your way up to the crown.

A note about hair types: Depending on the texture and style of the wig, you may need to do additional research. Curly hair should be treated differently than straight hair and may require a little more upkeep.

Safe sex doll storage

Sex doll storage guarantees that your doll will be will you for a long time. There are many ways to store your sex doll, so she’s safe and protected from environmental factors, sharp objects, and accidental damage.

When you aren’t using your doll, keep her in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight or extreme temperatures. There are different ways to store your sex doll, but if you don’t feel like getting creative, we have a variety of sex doll storage cases depending on your needs.

Moving and using your doll

Make sure that when you move your doll from room to room that you do so with care. You don’t want to damage her in the process. Watch her head, appendages, and other joints.

When you use your doll, always use a water-based lube to keep her skin from tears or other damage. When you’re not using her, avoid leaving her arms and legs open for too long. It can place stress in her joints and, again, can cause tears in her skin.

Your doll helps take care of your needs. So return the favor and make sure she’s well cared for and adequately cleaned. She’ll continue being there for you for years to come.
