Product Review: Bondara Essentials Sex Toy Cleaner

While most high-quality sex toys require a minimal amount of maintenance all toys should be cleaned before and after use. Because of this a good quality sex toy cleaner can be indispensable—cutting through gunk and keeping toy users safe from one play session to the next.

The Bondara Essentials Sex Toy Cleaner is a good option for people looking for such a cleaner, and offers a decent amount of cleaner for a fairly reasonable price.

Bondara Essential Sex Toy Cleaner

The Bondara Essentials Sex Toy Cleaner retails at £3.99 for 150ml. It comes in an easy-to-use spray bottle—which allows users to effortlessly spray out the required amount.


When I received a sample from Bondara my cleaner came in a clear bottle. However since that time it seems like Bondara has redesigned the bottle to be in keeping with their brand. This is both a good and bad thing. On the one hand the cleaner now looks stylish and fits in with the overall brand design that Bondara has chosen. But, on the other hand, this means that you can’t see how much cleaner is left (and issue with the brand design as a whole).

The bottle may vary.
The bottle may vary, as mine did.

This cleaner is alcohol-free, contains an antibiotic, and has a lot to offer. It’s condom-safe, allergy-safe, can be used with all sex materials, and is safe in a food environment. With such a varied list of safeties covered it’s clear that this cleaner is trying to be as body and toy friendly as possible, which is a really good sign to my mind.

Using this cleaner is incredibly easy. All you have to do is apply it to your toy then rinse the toy off and wipe it with a clean cloth. The product page for this cleaner says that you need to leave it for a few minutes but honestly I’ve been able to spray, scrub, and rinse in less time than that and still come out the other end with an immaculate toy.

Each spray offers a reasonable amount of cleaner and you only need a few sprays per toy. Because this product is alcohol-free it doesn’t have a strong odour and the smell it does leave is faint. If hard-pressed I would say that this cleaner smells a bit like a sweet vinegar, but this is a very mind undertone.

What most impressed me about this cleaner was just how quickly and efficiently it cuts through lubricant and bodily fluids. With a minimal amount of scrubbing this cleaner was able to easily cut through any gunk that was coated on my toys after a thorough toy session. This is especially useful if you’ve used a lot of toys in a play session—as it cuts down the time needed to scrub each product.

The cleaner is quite thin, which might be a deterrent for some, but it’s not sticky and gets the job done.

If I was going to pick a fault with this cleaner it would how to be just how thin this cleaner is, but that really is a nit-pick.

It also doesn’t quite provide the squeaky-clean feel that some of my alcohol-based cleaners do, but on the flip side it is a nice alternative for those who dislike alcohol-based cleaners.

Final Thoughts

Overall I was very happy with this cleaner. It doesn’t cost much, it lasts a long time, and it is well-designed to cut through bodily fluids and other products used during sex.

If you’re looking for a reasonably priced toy cleaner then the Bondara Essentials Sex Toy Cleaner is certainly a good choice.

    Sounds like a solid product. I also prefer the clear bottle though.
