Adam & Eve Essential Toy Cleaner

XCritic's Advice: Skip It

Toy Cleaners are a requirement for anyone who owns a toy that can't be sterilized. Regular soaps/wipe off cleaners can leave a residue on your toy, something you definitely want to avoid. And for those of us, myself included, that just want to pass out after sex, the idea of running to the bathroom to clean your dildo/vibrator/cock ring is daunting. This is where a wipe off toy cleaner really shines. A towel, the cleaner, the toy. Spray it on, wipe it off, and you're left with a clean toy and can roll over and proceed to passing out. What's not to love, right?

The fact that Disodium EDTA is the second ingredient in this toy cleaner makes me a little nervous. Granted, I want my toys clean, but the sketchy information surrounding it always concerns me. I have other cleaners that list EDTA, but usually as a much later ingredient. The fact it's been linked as being both Genotoxic and Cytotoxic- It's enough to make me worry. Granted, it's an organic compound, but I'd still rather avoid it. Okay, enough science for one review.

The bottle works well enough. It's a simple pump bottle. After a particularly long play session, I had quite a pile of toys to clean. I tend to get picky and change my mind about what sort of sensation I want, so I tend to use a lot of different types of toys. This cleaner worked very well on metal & glass. It was when I got to my silicone, TPR, and TPR silicone toys this cleaner started to let me down. It seemed like I was using way more cleaner than I should. The smell was also terrible. I can't describe it, but it reminds me of dust. It just has an old smell to it. Now I don't necessarily need flower scented dildos, but the smell of this was just offensive.

Now does it work as a toy cleaner? Technically, yes. My toys were clean, had no residue left, and didn't smell funky after a week (a tell tale sign with porous toys that you missed a spot or the cleaner didn't quite clean). Would I want to use this cleaner again? No. The smell and the fact it seemed to take twice the amount of cleaner as another wipe off cleaner makes this a Skip It in my book.
