Couple of days ago I read a thread where people complained about a bad smell coming from their silicone toys, most of all those used for anal play. Well, I think I found a creative and cheap solution.
Before any of you starts wondering about my mental health, I swear, it works. I tried on mine. My plug retained a faint but yet present bad odour and I decided to try something. Tried a simple grandmother's trick and it worked wonders.
1/3 of a cup of white vinegar (not pure, I'm not sure what acids could do to the toy so I decided to start with a watered down solution) and 2/3 of warm water. Let them soak for about half an hour, any bad smell will be wiped away by the acetic acid inside the vinegar. Alright, they'll retain a bit of a vinegar smell, but once you rinse it and give it a good wash with a bland soap, like the one you use for your hands, it should go away. And it's always better than the poop smell. You can also let them out and air dry for a while, the smell of vinegar will go away as soon as the acetic acid evaporates.
I think even lemon juice could work the same, with the same proportions, but I ran out of lemons and I couldn't try.
