How to Clean Your Fleshlight – Step by Step 

Now, there are quite a lot of ways to clean a Fleshlight, but, they are not all equally effective. So, I’m going to explain one perfectly good way to clean your Fleshlight and get it ready for the next session.

Just follow these steps and you will be illuminated.

1. Preparing Your Fleshlight

In order to clean the Fleshlight properly, you will need to disassemble the hard case from the sleeve first. This is quite important since these two parts are the main two objects that we’re going to clean today.

Now, do this carefully and with patience. The last thing you want to happen is to somehow break your favorite toy. Honestly, no one likes that. 

You are ready to begin the cleaning process now. 

2. Wash The Hard Case

The first thing we are going to clean is the hard case. Namely, this part is a bit more durable than the sleeve, and that’s why you will need to use a bit more effort in order to clean it.

For this step, you will need to use hot water combined with a non-acidic cleaning solution. We recommend a combination of FleshWash and RenewingPowder.

Try to avoid the cheap, knock-off cleaners that some sites will try to sell you. The Official Fleshlight Site will be your number one resource, not just for fleshlight cleaning items but all your sex toy needs. Act now to get 25% off your FleshWash solution so you can get the best fleshlight cleaner out there, plus a powder that helps your fleshlight feel brand new, every time.

First, take the hard case and rinse it with hot water. After that, add some soap/cleaner and let it sit for 20-40 minutes. The cleaner and hot water solution will dissolve any love juices you may have left behind in the canal.

To make sure that you did a good job here, you should use an old cloth or towel and scrub the hard case a bit. It is important to reach all the way to the bottom since that’s where the real mess likes to hide.

3. Rinse The Sleeve

Now comes the sleeve – be extra careful with this delicate part of the Fleshlight since this is where all the magic happens. You wouldn’t want to damage this part even slightly. 

Let’s get back to the cleaning now. First, take the sleeve and rinse it with water. You can actually do this quite simply. Namely, just put the sleeve under the faucet and turn the tap. Don’t hesitate to use higher water pressure for this part since you will want to clean the sleeve properly. If you have a garden hose or pressure washer, while they are by no means a necessity, will get the job done swimmingly. Just make sure your neighbors don’t see if you want to avoid an awkward conversation or dirty looks… 

Also, repeat this step a couple of times since there are some really hard-to-clean spots inside the sleeve. 

4. Stick Your Finger in The Sleeve

Once you are done rinsing, it is time to stick your finger in the sleeve and dislodge cum buildup on the sides. The rinsing part was only cleaning the sleeve from bacteria and other easy-to-clean stuff. But, cum stains tend to be a huge pain, I’m sure any man would agree.

Now, when you insert a finger inside the sleeve, make sure that you do the cleaning thoroughly and with patience. You don’t want to be rough since you risk stretching the sleeve and creating some micro-tears. 

5. Fill Your Sleeve – And Shake it Up

After that, you will want to make use of both your hands. Simply put, you will need to block the exit of the sleeve with one hand and pour some water in the sleeve. Now, use your other hand to block the sleeve entrance.

Next, start shaking the sleeve with the water inside it. This will create a perfect ‘’washing cycle’’ and you will have a perfectly clean Fleshlight. Also, you are about to shake for approximately 30 seconds – just to make sure that everything is fine. 

6. Re-Apply Your FleshWash

Flush the water out of the sleeve and get ready re-use the best thing ever – the aforementioned FleshWash. Now, this is a specially designed cleaning product that is specially designed for Fleshlight cleaning. It is safe and quite popular among many Fleshlight aficionados.

With the FleshWash, you will be able to ensure that your Fleshlight is perfectly cleaned and ready for your next scheduled TugTime.

So, how does the FleshWash actually work? Well, after you’ve rinsed and flushed the sleeve properly, you will want to spray the FleshWash all over the sleeve. Remember to use a bit more FleshWash at the entrance of the sleeve since that part can get especially sticky. 

After that, let the sleeve sit for a bit until you’re ready to advance to the next step. 

7. Applying Your Renewing Powder

When the sleeve is covered in FleshWash, it is time to apply a bit of renewing powder. This is also an essential thing to have if you like to stick your penis in a nice clean and clear sleeve.

Now, simply pour a bit of powder all over the sleeve and use your hands to rub it evenly. It is important to use a bit more on the sleeve entrance since that’s the dirtiest part. 

8. Dry Your Sleeve

You can rest for a bit now. Anyhow, let’s be honest, this wasn’t such a hard thing to do – you only need a bit of time and effort to properly clean a Fleshlight. 

Anyway, there’s a couple of ways to dry the sleeve so I’m going to list them for you.

  1. Classic method After cleaning, you will want to put the Fleshlight sleeve in any warm and dry place. For example, you can place the sleeve on the radiator. But, don’t turn the heat to high since that can melt the sleeve. Always make sure that the radiator is not on the highest possible setting.
  2. Lazy method – Probably the most used one, this method requires you to simply put the sleeve on a flat surface and let it dry. However, that’s not such a smart thing to do since there might be some water left inside the sleeve after all. If you don’t want to wait an hour or more, try the other options.
  3. Dangerous method – Now the most dangerous method, but still the fastest one, is to use a hairdryer. The sleeve will be exposed to a significant amount of heat that way, but it will dry quickly. To make sure not to damage the sleeve, use the hairdryer from a distance. **We do not recommend this method due to the high risk of damaging your sleeve**


There we go, fellas. Cleaning of the Fleshlight surely is important and not nearly as tough as you might think. You just need to stick to your FleshWash cleaning products such as the spray (if you want a simpler option), renewing powder and everything in between. 

Again, we can’t stress enough how important it is to avoid wasting your money on any cheap or off-brand fleshlight cleaners. The FleshWash is an official Fleshlight cleaning product, we guarantee you’ll be satisfied with the price and most importantly, its effectiveness.

All in all, I really hope that this guide helped you all to clean your precious Fleshlight. And remember, you should clean your Fleshlight after every use! Otherwise, it’s just not hygienic. 

Remember to go straight to the official FleshLight site for all your fleshlight maintenance needs. That way, we can guarantee you’ll get legitimate and fairly priced products every time.
