I've got a suede flogger that's been used in, ah, intimate ways- any suggestions on how to clean it?
Mr. Gyrl says:
I assume you don't want to bring something like this to the dry cleaners ;) Also that might be bad for the handle. Use a damp cloth with gentle soap for cleaning. A harsher soap may make the color run and/or leave stains! For marks or stains, use a stiff brush, sponge or a damp cloth. On larger pieces, use a circular motion while cleaning. For drying, blot dry and hang or lie flat. This will help keep your leather pretty and straight, meaning better and more consistent hits and marks.
A reminder for all of you out there- anytime you use any toy in an intimate manner (i.e. contact with genitals and/or bodily fluids) and you plan on using it on another person, make sure you clean it. This is not only a courtesy, it's a safeguard. STIs can be passed from something as seemingly innocuous as saliva. Even if your partner thinks that they're clean, some STIs take 6 months or more to show up on screenings. Please play safely, for yourself and for others. Remember- Safe, Sane and Consensual.
