I have a fleshlight and its developing fuji on the outside, how do I get rid of it as its not like its going to just rub off
Not being male, I fail to see the value of those things and would just throw it away.
That said, I tell my patients that anything that goes into them (menstrual cup, diaphragm, dildoes) should washed with warm water and clear soap (it rinses more easily). And then soak in a solution of one part white vinegar, two parts warm water for twenty minutes or so. If that does not remove it, it is not fungus.
Newtolove, I checked their website and they have instructions for cleaning it there. Also, suggests for cleaning a fleshlight are on their user forums as well. I suggest you check there because they know how to best clean their product. It could be made out of a material that will react to certain cleaning agents.
This is taken directly off their site:
What is the best way to clean the Fleshlight?
Simply rinse your Fleshlight insert with warm water from your sink and allow time for both to dry before storing. Do NOT use soap to clean your insert. For tough cleaning, we suggest using a little isopropyl alcohol. To maintain that soft feel, sprinkle a liberal amount of corn starch on the insert and shake off the excess powder. We do NOT recommend the use of talcum or baby powder. NOTE: Frequent powdering of an Ice Fleshlight will cause it to gradually cloud over.
Sounds like you weren't allowing it to dry before you stored it. Fungus likes warm, moist environments so make sure you let it air dry completely. It's also worthy of note that other users say it's fine to use talc on the non-ice (clear) fleshlights because they are made with talc in them, but that's up to you.
Brandye, the value of those things to a male is equivalent to the value of a vibrator or dildo to a female.
I am glad I have TOO MANY Hobbies.....at least I have little idle time. LOL
If it's got fungus on it, I think I'd throw it away and get a new one. While I wholeheartedly believe that what Brandye said would work on a dildo, I wouldn't trust that to clean something that was internal. For the same reasons that it's easier to thoroughly clean a penis, than it is a vagina, it's easier to clean a dildo, than it is a fleshlight.

me too but comes a time when its frustrating, I never realised there had been replies something must be wrong with the mailing system, I'll check back later when I'm back from work
well this is on the outsude and does not just wash off its well atached I'm trying to brush it now problem is apparantly you can't use anything more than "some" soap elsee it will damage the material
I would just buy another one.
I was wondering what it was and so I looked it up. Odd looking, a little disturbing. Is it really as great and real feeling as the reviews say?

why disturbing ? it might not be all its cracked up to be but better than nothing, but hopefully that'll change in the future
With any porous material, once the mildew starts, it's pretty much a goner. I would get rid of it and get a new one. JMO
I own one and it is really all its cracked up to be. I spread the word like crazy because I was so impressed by it! If you can afford one try it out trust me. If you want more info on it see my sig, i think its the best info site out of all the info sites, another good one is fleshjo! well goodluck
well I'm rinsing it thoroughly and the fungi is dissapereing I suppose sperm+lube is great plant feed !
(please read all) I've got the STU and a while ago it started to form these grayish dots all over the outside of it and I knew it was some sort of fungus because they were growing in lines down the sleeve. I was starting to worry because i couldn't find any solutions on these forums that would work to get this stuff off and i came to the conclusion that i was either going to have to throw it away or figure out my own solution and i cant really afford to put another 80-90 bucks into it so here is what it did and it worked. Now they will tell you not to use soap of any kind on these things but really all you want to avoid is SOAKING the thing in soapy water or letting soap sit on it because that will more than likely mess it up since soap deteriorates the material. What i have done twice is, get a bottle of dish soap, a toothbrush and a sink with hot/warm running water, the hotter the better, and baby powder for after you're done. use the soap as sort of toothpaste with the toothbrush, saturating it, then rubbing lightly on the fungus stuff in a back and forth motion, or in small circles, and promptly rinsing the soap off (keep that running water close and handy) . some of it is hard to get to come off so you will probably have to keep at it for a while but this method worked so well that i am pretty confident that it will work. Once you have it cleaned to your liking, just sit it in front of a fan out in the open and let it dry or wrap it in paper towels( you can towel dry but i always get lint stuck to it). as i said tho i only have the pink STU sleeve so i don't know about the clear ones. there are pros and cons to this method, the first con being that, yes it does make your flesh light sticky when its dry but this is pretty much a non-issue because you won't notice this if you use baby powder after it is dry, to keep that fresh, un=clingy feeling, and also the baby powder will soak up any residual moisture(the talc in baby powder does have carcinogenic properties so use at your own risk and avoid getting it in the entrance hole). You must not be lazy with the cleaning of your flesh light after each use because it does not take long for this stuff to start forming, and if it gets too out of control then your only option may be to get rid of the sleeve. upkeep is the key to longevity. the pro so this is that you will be saving money. this method only works (as far as i know) with this grayish black fungus, if you have some other type of different looking fungus then i cannot guarantee that it will work I would post before and after pics but i don't have a camera that can focus on such small things. (as i said before, use caution and do this at your own risk. when using this method because soap will deteriorate the material if left in contact with your flesh light, so don't let it sit on the surface any longer than need be). If this method did or didn't work for you, please let me know and share this or make a video because this seems to be a common problem with flesh light owners. once again i am not responsible for any damages done to your flesh light, just use caution and common sense and do research.
Most body fluids are great media for growing stuff - such as fungi and bacteria. Semen is an extremely rich nutrient for these. I cannot imagine why these would be manufactured of some substance that is so prone to contamination and so resistant to normal cleaning materials. We women have been using diaphragms, cervical caps, menstrual cups and similar for a century - all manufactured to facilitate hygiene. And they are all drenched in very nutrient rich fluids, including semen, for pathogens. I would not patronize a company with such disregard for sanitation.
That said, some plastics have a slightly permeable surface that harbor stuff that can grow and discolor the material. Soap discouraged? Then they used the wrong material for a product exposed to body fluids. My usual recommendations for cleansing those things that spend time in a vagina is a vinegar soak. One part white vinegar to two parts warm water. Soap is basic and vinegar is acidic. Then air dry, powder and store - preferable with air circulation and not in an airproof box. All this after washing with a mild soap solution.
