The setting is 21st century, western world, currently only one user of said toys.
What kind of things can you use to clean dildos, etc, which are primarily used for anal stimulation?
I know how I clean my (thus far vaginal only) toys: I use baby wipes regularly, on the philosophy that if you can clean a baby with it, it's safe to use on your sex toys; and I wipe them down periodically with sterile alcohol swabs. However, I've been told that the internal walls of the rectum are more sensitive than either the vagina or a baby's bottom.
So first question is: can you use baby wipes to clean anal toys? (I assume you'd have to stay away from scented ones, etc, same as I do.)
Second question is: if not, what sort of products could my character use, if he wants to keep his activities discreet? All my research so far suggests soap and water, but that could get awkward in shared accommodation (thus why I have baby wipes, myself). I don't really want to put the character through the awkward unless I have to.
Tried: googling; babeland; Caitlan's Corner; Minotaur's Sex Tips for Slash Writers; Tristan Taormino's homepage; Freddy and Eddy; Daily Bedpost; uh... I think that's it :D All of them were more concerned with what to do WITH an anal toy than how to keep it clean.
Moral of the story is: sometimes I get a little TOO hung up on minor plot details. But now that my inner nit-picker has asked this question, I HAVE TO KNOW THE ANSWER. Any links to relevant advice sites or personal advice you can give would be great.
