Soaps/Ingredients to avoid?

Postby Cynic Dickic » Sun Dec 17, 2017 10:09 am

So while I've used the same soap several times now with no apparent problems I wanted to make sure I'm not doing anything that might degrade my toys. It could just be that there's a small amount in the soap and the process is slow, but even if that isn't the case it would be good to know for the future. With that being said, what kinds of soap and specific ingredients should be avoided when washing your toys?

Soaps that list any ingredients ending in -cone, like dimethicone. It's silicone, and might react poorly to toys...

Other than soaps containing silicone, I can't think of much else that might worry your toys, soap wise. I tend to use antibacterial hand soap but in the past have used LUSH soaps, shower creams and jellies, and even generic shampoo when I actually didn't have any hand soap around.

What about Methylchloroisothiazolinone or Methylisothiazolinone? I know they end in "-none" and not "-cone" but I don't know how chemical names are structured, and I can't be too careful.

The -nones appear to be antibacterial agents to prevent bacteria and fungi from growing in the soap, from a quick google search

I like using castile soap for cleaning toys; its a blend of oils, lye/saponifying agent, glycerin (usually a byproduct of the reaction of the oil and lye, left in for hydrating purposes), and essential oils. It smells super nice, has a pretty short ingredient list, and doesn't leave a film on toys or skin

I see, looks like the soap I've been using is fine then. Still, now I know what to look out for.
