- Hypoallergenic, if you are more sensitive to lubricants, this may be a great option for you.
- Anal sex recommended, because the anus is a dry black hole, silicone lubricant is great for anal sex.
- Waterproof-ish, silicone lubricant isn’t easily washed away with water. So if you use it in the shower, you need to be careful and use it where you want it. If you get any on the floor, use a cloth to pick it up. You don’t want to fall and hit your head in the shower for an orgasm.

How To Use Silicone Lube
After picking the silicone lubricant you want, I’m sure you’ll ready to get started! Coat the item you want to use in a layer of silicone lube, I typically use 2 fingers to spread the lubricant around.
You can also use the lubricant on yourself, it’s easiest to put some on your fingers and place where desired.
Start with a smaller amount then add on as needed, since silicone lubricant is slippery you want to make sure you don’t get it on the floor.
How To Clean Silicone Lube
Get silicone lube off your body. You want to use soap and water, just wash until you feel it’s gone. It shouldn’t take much, just don’t be afraid to be generous with the soap.
Remove silicone lube from toys. Use warm water and toy cleaner or antibacterial soap to remove silicone lube from your toys. After washing them you can either let them air dry or pat them dry.
Clean silicone lube off fabric. It’s worth noting that silicone lube can stain sheets, so you want to get it off any fabric you like others seeing with swift action after the fun is done. You want a grease-fighting soap and water to start, it should come off with ease.
If that doesn’t work then you can use laundry-focused stain remover or toy cleaner. Let it sit on the fabric to really soak in before washing.
Silicone lube makes things really slippery, and the wetter the better! Have some fun and don’t be afraid to explore and enjoy with a little silicone lube.
