There are many benefits when it comes to owning a sex doll. Some would even say they’re better than real-life partners. Now, we wouldn’t get too much into that discussion. However, what we can say is that if you don’t take proper care of your sex doll – it would be a good friend to you.

As you can tell from their name, the purpose of these dolls is relatively straightforward – you have sex with them. Sure, you can be in a committed relationship with a doll, but more often than not, you use them to get off and go to sleep.

When it comes to sex dolls, they’re either made from TPE or silicone. Both options are good, with only slight differences between the two, but nothing too significant. However, regardless of which one you choose, you have to take care of it. You have to keep your doll clean. Otherwise, you’ll be in a world of trouble.

On that note, let’s take a look at some maintenance tips.

You’ll Need Tools

First of all, maintaining your TPE or silicone sex doll won’t be easy. It’ll require time, work and money, but if you do it all correctly – it will be more than worth it. So, before you even get started, you will need a lot of things. First things first, you’ll need a vaginal irrigator, powder, mild soap, comb, a soft, dry towel, Vaseline and of course, water. These are the essential things you’ll need to keep your doll in good shape.

Aside from those, you might need some other things, as well. Some like to give their dolls a makeover and keep them tidy all the time, and in that case, you’ll need a makeup palette, nail and eyelash flue, powder brush, clothes and so on. Basically, you will need all the things a regular human would need.

Clean Your Doll All The Time

The worst thing you can do is leave your sex doll dirty. Not only is that not hygienic and gross, but you are risking your own health in doing so. Sure, the smell will be pungent and whatnot, but that’s nothing compared to what can happen to you if you don’t clean your doll after you have sex with it.

So, first things first – always clean the key areas after sex. That means whatever place came in close contact with your genitals needs to be washed right after. This is non-negotiable. Also, maybe we don’t have to mention this, but you will need to clean your doll after you’ve unpacked it and before the first use.

Finally, when it comes to thorough cleaning, do it either once every two weeks or once a month, depending on where you store the dolls. According to myminisexdoll, if you keep your doll safely stored, away from the dirt and dust, you can get by with only cleaning it once a month. On the other hand, if you’re keeping it out in the open, you will have to do it more often.

Keep It Powdered

Your sex dolls must always be well-powdered. When it comes to which powder you should use, it’s basically up to your preference, but we’d always recommend going with something neutral, like unscented baby powder. Naturally, if you prefer a specific smell, you can find a powder that’s fitting.

You should always check whether the doll is sufficiently powdered before every use. To be fair, powdering it once a month should be more than sufficient, but still, you should always check. Powdering is a great way to keep your doll fresh and smooth for a long time.


Keep It Dry

As we’ve mentioned earlier, you will have to clean your doll after every use, but what we didn’t say is that you’ll have to dry it after every cleaning, as well. Moisture is most definitely not your friend. Do you know whose friend moisture is? Mould’s and bacteria’s, and we’re pretty confident you don’t want those around.

After every cleaning, you will have to grab a towel and thoroughly dry the insides and the outside of the doll. The material from which the doll is made is porous, so if you leave it wet, the moisture will surely find a way to penetrate the doll and ruin it from the inside out.

What you can also do is air dry your doll when you’re not using it. Naturally, this comes after drying the doll with a towel, not before. Basically, what you should do is leave the doll’s key areas exposed to the air, so they can quickly dry and vent out.

Use Antibacterial, Mild Soap

When it comes to actually clean it, don’t forget that these dolls can’t be sterilized, so don’t waste your money on products that claim to do so. Instead, just go out and find a mild, antibacterial soap and use it to wash your doll. You can even go out and purchase a specially designed soap for TPE and silicone dolls.

Also, you can try out specially designed sex doll cleaners if you really want to, but you don’t need to spend any extra money on those. A regular mild, antibacterial soap will do just fine.

As for wigs and hair, just use mild shampoo and conditioner, and you should be good. Just don’t overuse them – these hairs don’t grow back.

Do Not Use These

Finally, the last piece of advice we have for you is to stay away from alcohol, bleach, dish soap, or boiling-hot water. None of these are suitable for a TPE or a silicone doll and will only ruin it instead of cleaning it. All of these are way too abrasive for materials such as TPE or silicone and will only degrade and destroy the material over time. So, just stick to the basics.


In the end, we can only say that you should treat your sex doll as you would treat yourself. Keep it clean and dry at all times, use suitable lubricants and don’t try and wash it with bleach. Seems easy enough, right?
