Care and Cleaning Guide

At Nikki Darling, we ensure that you are able to make informed decisions about the intimate products you use. On each product page, you'll find the product materials listed in the Details tab as well as a dedicated Care and Cleaning tab right on the product page too. 

Our care and cleaning information is also provided below. This acts as a general reference guide only.

Our guides have been developed to provide general guidance for products based on their materials - most manufacturers have specific guidelines, and we recommend reading any included instructions to ensure you do not void the warranty!

We know how exciting it is to get your brand new toy, but please take a moment to inspect your toy for any manufacturing defects or faults, and then give it a quick clean before you get down.

Please note: Manufacturers may have specific cleaning and care instructions. Take the time to read any supporting material provided by the manufacturer and follow their instructions to ensure the product is protected under warranty.
