A Complete Guide: Wand Safety and Care
Proper cleaning, use, and storage will keep your Le Wand functioning optimally, help you avoid any potential harm, and ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Here are our tips on how to keep your Le Wand in tip-top shape.
Wand care #1: body safety
Rest assured, all Le Wand products are made of certified body-safe materials. There are no toxic materials that can be transmitted to your body from either the wand or any of the optional accessories.
We use a premium, silky-smooth silicone for the wand head, as this is the part of the wand that touches your body. One of the wonderful attributes of silicone material is that it’s nonporous, which means that bacteria and other contaminants aren’t absorbed.
Tips for sharing your wand
During sex play, it is possible to spread bacteria if you share your toy. While ideally, it’s best to use your own toy, we know many people enjoy sharing their good vibes with a partner. So, if you share, consider covering the wand head with the included texture cover or with a condom.
Vibrator covers are a great overall accessory to protect the wand for sharing. They are very useful if you are on your period, prefer a lubricant or massage oil that is not compatible with the silicone head or want to use the wand on a non-intimate area of the body such as your feet. These covers can be used multiple times, although they should be thrown away and replaced once they start to wear out or begin to tear (typically 5- 10 uses). Be sure to wash thoroughly between uses.
Remember, you should not go from anal to vaginal play without first thoroughly washing your product or changing the texture cover or condom. You can, however, go from vag play to butt play with no issues.
Choosing the right lube
Lubricant is a great addition to playtime because it may further prevent infection. Body-safe lubes help provide create a smooth “glide” during penetration, which decreases the risk of vaginal or anal tears and micro-tears. Intact skin is one of your best defenses against infection-causing bacteria.
Using a body-safe lubricant is key since lubes containing ingredients like glycerin and toxic preservatives can irritate your skin and cause an altered vaginal environment, which increases the likelihood of vaginal or anal tears and consequently raises the risk of infection.
Remember to only use a water-based lube directly on the silicone head of Le Wand. The direct use of silicone lubes can cause product breakdown, change the shape of the silicone, and will (sadly) void its warranty.
Wand care #2: safe cleaning
Le Wand products can be cleaned either with mild soap and warm water or our Intimate Organic Toy Cleaner.
Made from Certified Organic IASC Aloe Vera, this non-foaming toy cleaner is fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, and does not contain any Glycerin, Parabens, Alcohol, Triclosan, or other harsh chemicals. For the best results, we recommend pairing this product with the ultra-effective b-Vibe UV Sterilizer Pouch.
When using soap and water, use a mild, unscented hand or dish soap. Avoid soaps that contain oils or moisturizers, as they can break down the product. Additionally, studies have shown that it is unnecessary to use antibacterial soaps because their use has been found to be no more effective in killing germs than a 15-second scrub with plain soap. Antibacterial soaps (usually containing triclosan or triclocarban) can also leave a residue that is not only irritating but can potentially disrupt the endocrine system, weaken the immune system, and cause birth defects and cancer.
Keep in mind that the body of the Le Wand Vibrating Massager is not waterproof. Submerging the wand in water during cleaning or playtime will damage it and void the warranty (note: Le Wand attachments alone can be submerged in water).
Wand care #3: safe storage
Before you store your Le Wand products, it is crucial to thoroughly wash them and allow them to dry completely. Doing this is essential to avoid the growth of mold and mildew.
Additionally, we do not advise storing toys randomly in drawers, as they can collect dirt and dust. Keep your Le Wand Massager in the storage bag. Fortunately, Le Wand comes with its own case, but for toys that do not, zip lock bags, makeup bags, even dust bags work well. Once covered, toys can be stored together in a drawer or another desired location.
Extreme temperatures can cause product destruction. Store your beloved buddies in a cool and dark place.
Now that you’ve got the roadmap to safely using, caring, and storing your product, we wish you many years ahead of fun and enjoyment. After all, that’s what Le Wand products were created for.
