How to Clean Your Pumps
How often should I clean my pumps?
Be sure to give your pumps at least a quick wash after each use, as this can help to keep the pumps relatively clean. However, this shouldn’t be the only way that you clean and sterilise your pumps. You should also aim to deep clean and sanitise them once a week, this will get rid of any bacteria that can build up inside your pumps.
What is the best way to clean my pumps?
We suggest that you use warm soapy water to soak your pump systems, but be sure to use a mild soap that is suited for sensitive skin - as the intimate areas of your body can be easily irritated. Some of our existing customers have cleaned their female and male enhancement pumps by running them through the dishwasher, and their results seem to be successful. However, we recommend not opting for this method as the repeated use of a dishwasher can lead to the deterioration of your female or male enhancement pump systems over time.
Female Enhancement Pumps
When cleaning your female enhancement pumps ensure that you clean both the cup(s) and tubes, as both can harbour bacteria and germs. By soaking your female pump system in warm soapy water with the cup(s) and tubes taken apart, you can reach the vital areas of your pump system that gather germs and bacteria. It also makes it easier to remove any remaining water in the tubes that could affect the quality of the pumping.
If you also have the soft rings that sit at the bottom of the cup(s), these can be washed with warm water and soap. You can also wipe down the cup(s) and soft rings with a damp cloth. You can dry your female pump system naturally or use a dry, soft cloth to speed up the process.
Male Enhancement Pumps
When cleaning your male enhancement pumps, take apart the various components as this makes it easier to clean them - and easier to remove any water that may get caught in the tubes. Using warm water and mild soap, soak your male pump system separately from the pump head. This should not be submerged in water, as this can cause damage to the electrical elements or cause bacteria to form due to trapped moisture. You can also use a soft bottle brush to help you target harder to reach areas in the penile tube. The support rings, due to being more delicate, only require warm water and a gentle scrub to clean them thoroughly. Your male pump system can be left to dry naturally or dried with a dry, soft cloth.
What can I do to make cleaning my pumps easier?
While the thorough cleaning of your male or female enhancement pumps is beneficial and helps to keep bacteria levels down, it can seem like a tedious task. Here are some dos and don’ts to make cleaning your pumps easier:
- Don’t use oil-based lubricants; this makes it harder to clean your pumps and can also deteriorate the materials of your pumps.
- Do use water-based lubricants - like our Noogleberry Water-Based Lube, as this makes for a more comfortable experience and can be effectively cleaned off.
- Do remove the batteries, if you’re using a battery operated pump. This may seem like common sense, but it can be easy to forget!
- Don’t try to wash your pumps in the dishwasher, as this can melt the components of your pump and - in some cases - make it unusable.
