Removing Odors From Silicone Toys


Been looking for the answer to this one for quite some time.

As we all know, 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.

Ran across this article by Scott at SquarePeg Toys.

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.

Spread the word! (Just credit Scott at SquarePeg Toys.)

  1. I’ve always used a bleach and water solution, soak ’em anywhere for a couple hours. I think I do much more than a ten percent bleach solution, but it’s always worked for me. I put the toy in a medium/large bowl (depending upon the size of the toy) pour the bleach over the toy till it’s about 1/3, 1/2 covered and then fill the bowl till about 1/2 or more full with extremely hot tap water. Rinse, wash with soap as normal, works great for me. Or, with my lazier method: I always find that upon removal of a butt toy that if anything is on it, I immediately clean it off and fill the sink with hot, antibacterial soapy water and let it soak till whenever I want to finish cleaning it. I clean it as normal, allow to air dry. I’ve heard that Tantus recommends baking their toys to get smells out. Definitely have to check out this Acetone method.

    1. I tried using bleach as well with a couple of stubborn toys, but they didn’t respond to it. Funny how we all have found what works and it’s not the same!

  2. I’ve checked some chemical and engineering resources for silicone/acetone compatibility. Silicone is graded as ‘conditionally resistant’ (for example – here) to acetone exposure, even ‘poor compatibility’ in some manuals*, and there are some recommendation for removing silicone caulk with acetone. So it’s better to use small amount of acetone for a short time and probably better on a harder material, not a softer one.

    *) but these manuals are about industrial-grade installations and long-term exposure.

  3. I am a bit confused on how acetone relates to acetate. The nail varnish remover I found contains acetate, not acetone, and it does not seem to be particularly effective in removing odor. Looking at Wikipedia, the substances seem to be unrelated despite their similar names and, apparently, their similar usage. Can someone enlighten me?

    1. This is what I have – not sure as to the difference.

  4. Soap, baking soda and water.

    1. That is a combination I have not tried! Good to know.
