What works best when removing odor from silicone toys! Been looking for the answer to this one for quite some time.
As an aficionado of pegging, sometimes things can get a little messy and when that happens, odors can be retained in the toy. I’m talking about excellent quality dildos (because that’s all I use). I’ve tried many things to remove that odor with little success.
Is your toy 100% silicone with no inner charging or vibe mechanisms? You can put it in the oven! Bake it at 350 F (176 C) for 30 minutes, and that should take care of the odor.
What about removing odor from toys with inner vibration mechanisms? Because you definitely do not want to bake those toys in the oven.
Wipe it Down With Acetone
Voilà! Success. I’d just purchased a bottle of pure acetone at the drug store – labeled “professional maximum strength 100% acetone”. Quite inexpensive. (Not the colored, scented fingernail polish remover.)
I have a Blush Novelties Ergo Mini that had retained an odor. That is a dual density dildo, softer than most. According to Scott’s article – the softer toys are more prone to odor retention. (He explains why – go read it.)
Used the acetone as described (I had the makeup pads on hand already) and it worked like a charm!
