Ever wondered how to dry a Fleshlight? You are definitely not alone. With more than 15 million Fleshlights having been sold since it’s inception 20 years ago, there are a lot of men out there trying to figure out how to dry a Fleshlight. Of course, that’s understandable, as Fleshlights have removable sleeves that are textured with all sorts of stimulating nooks and crannies.
Unfortunately, those nooks and crannies make them difficult to dry.
So, I have searched the depths of the internet to give you the best tips on how to dry a Fleshlight; all in one spot. From DIY drying techniques – that may not cost you a cent – to some pretty ingenious products created by men, for men, you can find everything you need right here.
Why It’s Important to Dry a Fleshlight
As mentioned above, the vast majority of Fleshlight sleeves are textured in order to give you a different, stimulating feel with each model. Unfortunately, all of those textures make it difficult for Fleshlights to dry after they are washed. But why is it so important to dry your Fleshlight thoroughly?
Well, much like the drywall in your home, which is porous, RealSkin Fleshlight sleeves are also porous. Therefore, when they get wet, if you don’t dry them well enough, they can grow mold and mildew, just like drywall. And do you really want to stick your penis in something coated in black mold and mildew? Ew, I would hope not!
For this reason, and to save you and your penis, here are some great tips on how to dry a Fleshlight.
How to Dry a Fleshlight: DIY Tips
You don’t need anything fancy to dry your Fleshlight. In fact, there are several ways to dry your sex toy with items you may already have around the house. But before I get into those tips, here is the simplest technique for drying your Fleshlight.
- Remove the sleeve from the Fleshlight case.
- Gently turn inside-out and wash with soap and warm water. Rinse well.
- Pat the inside of your Fleshlight sleeve dry and leave to air dry for a few hours.
Yes, that sounds easy enough! But some men prefer not to turn the sleeve inside-out for fear of ripping the material and ruining their favorite sex toy. I get it! Therefore, here are some easy tips to dry a Fleshlight using things you may already have around the house.
Dry Your Fleshlight with a Car Shammy
You may already have the perfect solution for drying your Fleshlight sleeve right in the garage; a car shammy. Car shammies, or drying and detailing cloths, are usually made of absorbent microfiber fabric. This allows for maximum absorbency; gentleness and they leave behind no little bits of fabric or fuzz.
Simply remove the sleeve from the case and wash it with soap and warm water – no need to turn it inside-out. Roll the car shammy up and slip it inside. Squeeze the sleeve in order to flatten the textured parts. Then, leave to dry for a couple of hours.
How to Dry a Fleshlight Using a Mini Fan
Got a mini desk fan? They are perfect for drying a Fleshlight! Simply wash and rinse your Fleshlight sleeve as usual. Placing the sleeve back into the case allows for the openings to be more level with the fan, so dry the outside of the sleeve with an absorbent towel and put it back into the case. Then, lay the Fleshlight on its side -with both caps off -, turn on the fan and run it till the sleeve is dry.
Use a Hair Dryer to Dry Your Fleshlight
Another easy way to dry a Fleshlight is by using a hair dryer. Unfortunately, this won’t work unless you own a blow dryer with warm or cool settings. However, if you do own this type of blow dryer, wash and rinse the sleeve as usual. Next, pat dry the outside of the sleeve. Then, with the dryer set on warm or cool, aim the flow of air at the opening to dry. Easy peasy!
Rubbing Alcohol to Dry Your Fleshlight Faster
I read a few tips for drying a Fleshlight in the Official Fleshlight forums on Reddit. One of which was to use rubbing alcohol to clean the sleeve and dry it quickly. However, it’s important to wash the sleeve with soap and water first in order to dissolve a majority of the bodily fluids and lubricant.
Remember the moldy sleeve pic? Yeah, it’s that important.
Next, pour some rubbing alcohol into the sleeve and work it around with your hands. Then, leave your Fleshlight sleeve to dry for a couple of hours. The alcohol will further kill germs and will allow the interior of the sleeve to dry more quickly. However, don’t use this method every time as the alcohol can dry out and damage the sleeve material.
Dry a Fleshlight By Snagging Her Tampons
If you have a female in the house, snag a couple of her tampons to dry your Fleshlight. Tampons are easy to use, super-absorbent and body safe; so, they won’t leave any lint of fuzz behind. First, remove the Fleshlight from the case and wash the sleeve in soap and water. Shake out as much water as possible. Then place a tampon in each end and leave to dry for a couple of hours.
Use an Aquarium Pump to Dry a Fleshlight
If you’re an aquarium owner or know someone who is, you may already have the perfect solution for drying a Fleshlight; the air pump! To dry a masturbation sleeve using an aquarium air pump, first wash and rinse your Fleshlight using soap and warm water. Next, hold the sleeve vertically to drain out as much water as possible.
Then, attach the plastic tubing to the aquarium pump and place it inside of the sleeve. Plug in the aquarium pump and let the air do all the work. Keep in mind that you’ll have to move the hose around to dry the entire Fleshlight sleeve.
How to Build a DIY Fleshlight Hanger
If you don’t have the time to use a hair dryer or babysit a mini fan, you may want to go with a slow drying solution. And, we know the best way to dry a Fleshlight is by placing it in a vertical position. With that in mind, I found a great YouTube video showing you how to build a DIY Fleshlight hanger using a simple, wire, clothing hanger. Check it out!
Then, all you have to do is wash your sleeve with soap and water, shake out the excess moisture and hang your Fleshlight sleeve in your closet so it’s dry and ready to use next time you’re ready for solo time.
If you prefer something with a little more power to dry your Fleshlight fast, this Reddit user has a simple DIY project you can follow to build your own sleeve dryer.
