How To Clean A Tenga

2 Tengas My Photo

After I bought my Tengas from ToyDemon (I bought 2 to try, a normal Deep Throat and a US Size Deep Throat), I was pleased with both products (haha I hope my readers take this maturely). The US size is large but provided more suction while the regular D.T. was awesome. As advertised, these are meant to be disposable. But after paying 20 some dollars for them, I didn’t want to use them just once and throw them away. I searched online and ran across a Taiwanese forum that teaches you how to clean it, they even have pictures! I’ll translate it here for every Tenga user’s reference. But keep in mind, these products are meant to be disposable. I’m sure the manufacturer don’t want you to re-use them. So re-use at your own risk! Or wear a jimmie hat =)

washing tenga 1

1. First, you remove the lid (this picture is kind of pointless)

2. Pull the outer wrapper down (or remove it completely), so you see the parting line between the cap ring and the body.

3. Now remove the ring. The ring fits tightly on to the body, so in the picture this person is using a screw driver to pop it. I’d recommend it too (it’s really hard to take it off).

4. After the ring comes off, you should be able to disassemble all the parts. You’ll get the body, the internal sleeve, the ring and your cap. Also there are foam paddings in some of the models that are fixed to the body, don’t touch those! You need to wash the internal sleeve. Flip it inside out and wash it, if it has a foam ball inside throw that away (it just collects lotion and gets nasty after the first use).

5. After you’ve washed the internal sleeve, let it dry inside out. Then put it back in as shown. You’ll have your self a clean Tenga!! But don’t put silicon based lotion in there (warning by ToyDemon), it will damage the silicon.

Hope this helps! I think Tenga came out with a Flip Hole model that is re-usable. So if you don’t want to wash your Tenga, then maybe the FlipHole model is a better option for you.


I went to toydemon and looked, seems like they’re sold out of all their stuff…….must be pretty popular. How was the D.T. awesome, have you tried the fleshlight? How does it compare?

I just checked that toydemon.com too.. hmm it looks like a pretty good deal that they’ve got. i’m going to email them and see If i can get a hold of a D.T too.. will update you guys

I just checked out toydemon too. They’ve got stock again but anyone else tried any of the other model? Also while surfing their site they said they’ll start selling flip hole soon too, wonder how the price compares with others.

Good tips… I’d definitely concur that you should wrap up your jimmy if you’re going to reuse one of these marvelous contraptions… And use rubbing alcohol to clean it… (Silicon is a great medium for bacteria to grown on obviously, and I guarantee you wouldn’t want any of those nasty buggers near your john thomas!) Likewise, the thing is fragile, so proceed with caution to not tear it… I don’t think you need or should use a screwdriver: the ring is on the inside and it’s flexible… Be sure to sufficiently clean those foam bits too of course! They really do soak up a mess but they’re useful.

I ordered a TENGA Fliphole and a set of EGG and my purchase just came today.



dude, why would you ever buy from tengatango? I can think of a handful of site that’s cheaper

Thank you for this tutorial I just ordered my own Tenga and now i know thats it for one use only and i want to use it many times so this will come in handy ;)

I have tried both fleshlight and Tenga, I prefer Tenga’s Fleshlight is good but Tenga grips you tighter and the suction is a lot better with the Tenga

I tried this cleaning method. Thanks! you saved me a lot.

Is the sleeve supposed to have a small cut hole near the end? I found a small hole that look like it was cut, and wanted to know if this is an air valve or if my tenga was defective. There were two other small holes in my tenga sleve.

I found it easiest to re-insert the sleeve if I pulled the foam out, put the sleeve on a toothbrush handle, wrapped the foam around the sleeve, and inserted the two back into the case together.

i have the Double hole cup and it has a small hole (like a cut) in both ends. i gather its to let air out. gortta say, it gave me the most amazing intense orgasm i’ve ever had. i was literally shaking afterwards!

Hey! Thank you a lot, very useful info!

thank you so much man. i just got it,
so i didnt want to throw it away after just one go.
this tutorial and the comments made by others
were vey helpful
thank u!

I thought the cleaning instructions were useful. I was happy when mine arrived at an amazing price

Good instructions, but I ripped the seams using a screwdriver because I didn’t understand the latex was pressure-fitted not bonded to the shell. Popping it out with a finger from inside seems like it would save it.

At any rate, I’ve been finding the sleeve itself works well even without the foam and shell. By removing the plastic ring you can turn the opening inside out and it will hold suction without the foam (you’ll have to have this in front of you to understand what I mean by turning the opening inside out).

Great toy and intend to get the other ranges as well

Just had my first go and woah amazing.

literally was the most intense thing i’ve felt in a long time!

thanks for the cleaning tips… be using it again soon


I just wanted to know if there is a deadline to it and the dangers of goin above that.


How many times is possible to use 1x tenga masturbator? How many cleanings? I read about some material degradation.

[…] If you have

Taking it apart eventually damages the very thin edge that is clamped between the ring and the case. I rigged up a bit of clear plastic tubing (which you can get by the foot at a hardware store) to the sprayer attachment on our kitchen sink and just douche that lil’ lady out with warmish to hot water. I put a little rubbing alcohol in it (to keep the nasties from growing between dates) and pop the top back on. I put the whole thing in a ziploc baggie to stash it.
When horniness strikes, dump out the alcohol, use the hose and warm water to rinse and raise the temp to ‘hot to trot’, add lube and spill some seed.
Eventually you do have to take it apart because there are vent holes here and there that allow the foam to become wet requiring cleaning but if you’re careful when you clean it with the hose you can minimize how often you need to do that. I just bought my second Squeeze Play due to failure of the outer attaching bit but I probably got 20-30 uses.

Is it really unsafe to re use???? I just bought a tenga black deep throat for a very low price :)

and I plan on doing the above many times lol

I just bought one today and had the best and I mean best session I have ever had. It was even better than some of the real stuff I’ve gotten

Get one you will love it

I am glad I bought my husband the reuseable one - Tenga Fliphole.

That SOB will probably ask me to clean the disposable one, or worst stick it inside our dishwashers!

he now wants me to get him the latest model - Tenga fliplite, and i told him not till he have regular sex with me again!

I bought my Tenga products and more masturbation stuff from somewhere and also had some cleaning questions. This blog helped me thank you for that.

@Ed ,indeed great if you use it the right way.

Sorry. Tenga products. (Damn Autocorrect!)

You dismantle one of these this things, and you really have to wonder about what is inside a real pussy!

Wow, was it anticipation, or am I still tingling an hour later? I bought 3 items and tried one. And now Hitomi in on my screen. Shall I let teh first one dry and follow the instructions, or…

anyone ever try to reuse a tenga egg?

Merely wanna remark on few general things, The website design is perfect, the subject material is rattling wonderful : D.

I have visited your blog before. The more I learn, the more I keep coming back! :-)

I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back down the road. Cheers

Why remove it from the shell? Can’t warm water and bacterial soap flush out the bacteria? Then use a dry cloth to dry the inside… Why can’t that work?

A powerful share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing slightly analysis on this. And he in reality bought me breakfast as a result of I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I really feel strongly about it and love reading extra on this topic. If doable, as you change into experience, would you thoughts updating your weblog with more particulars? It’s extremely useful for me. Massive thumb up for this weblog submit!

2 things - Was also wondering about being able to clean it w/o disassembling it. Anonymous, did you figure this out yet?
Also - really wanna get one of these for my husband. We live in different states right now and I want something that will satisfy him while we’re apart. Don’t want something that’s gonna be better than the real thing, tho. Can some of you guys talk about how it compares to a real woman? Do I need to worry about being “replaced”?

lol nothing is better than the real thing so u have nothing to worry about Racquel ;)

I intended to compose you one little note to be able to say thank you as before with the beautiful things you have documented on this site. It has been particularly open-handed with people like you to give openly just what a number of people could possibly have distributed as an e-book in making some cash for themselves, particularly seeing that you might well have tried it in the event you considered necessary. Those ideas additionally served to be a fantastic way to understand that the rest have the same dream just as my own to learn lots more concerning this condition. I know there are lots of more pleasurable occasions in the future for individuals that read carefully your site.

eep Throat US version and it is by far the best device for sexual release when I’m away, and I’ve been contracting overseas for a year now. I’ve used mine on average 30-40 times before replacing it.

The DT is easy to clean: The toy isn’t made with the retaining ring any more, the silicone sleeve is glued onto the plastic housing, and you have to pull the glue joint apart, which is easy to do and doesn’t really effect continued use. Inside the sleeve is surrounded with a foam liner that provides some tightness and holds the sleeve in place. I throw out the lube sponge and pull it apart. I wash the silicone sleave and put it all back together.

It’s a bad idea to wash it without taking it apart, the foam liner would get wet and not be able to dry. I occationally wash the liner too because the vent holes in the sleeve let some lube and man juice leak onto it.

Cleaning is pretty simple and makes this a great bargain.

I discovered your weblog site on google and examine a couple of of your early posts. Proceed to maintain up the excellent operate. I just extra up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. In search of ahead to studying extra from you later on!…Hope you intend to find more info with regards to fiber optic christmas

these instructions are useless it is impossible to get the sleeve back into the cup with all the foam around it, once you take it out ur fucked

Of all of the times I have read this blog I haven’t really read something as good as this. I’ll try and post this on facebook so my friends will read it. Thanks for the post.

Thanks for very useful tip… Amazed to see the effort that you put to write here..
An alternative way for reusing any similar product is to use condoms… U dont event want to wash.. I used to do that… lol :)

Perfect now I can use 4x longer

Internal sleeve has many cuts on it so outer covering will come all messed up, wet, sticky and stinky. Internal sleeve can be peeled into reverse side but still it has some very hard accessible places. In fact it is very hard to get sleeve back into the cup with foam around it. The best way to clean up these deep throat is not buy it :) That’s crap.

I have not personally tried these as of yet. But in Japan the TENGA is part of what is known as “ona hole” -> woman hole. Here you can get sleeves, similar to the fleshlight, however, better. They have all different types of internal restrictions etc etc. These are better if you want to reuse and much cheaper than TENGA products. Compared to TENGA and other ona holes, I think that flesh light has some catch up to do.

who needs to wash it lol. I just use it over and over again.. hehe

@ jive
Improper cleansing of something that you stick your dick in can result in very unpleasant results. Silicon is a breeding ground for bacteria. If you fail to clean something like this properly and thoroughly after each use, you will likely end up with a nasty urinary tract infection.

@ OP
I was very pleased to find this simple how-to after a few seconds in google. I purchased a Deep Throat Hard from ToyDemon just last week, and was concerned with just how to properly disinfect it.

Disassembling the product was simple. The only problem I encountered was when I tried to put everything back together. Apparently some people are having trouble with getting the silicon sleeve back in the cup.

In my Tenga, the foam layer was not glued or secured in any other form on the plastic body. I just pulled it out, and when I went to put everything back in, I wrapped the foam square around the silicon sleeve and pushed it all back inside the cup.

I did not notice any real change in tightness or sensation after reassembling it.

I use these now and again. To reuse several times I just wear a rubber. It prolongs the sex play and I find it to be a lot of fun. My partner and I like to use them for foreplay so a rubber helps out there as well. I hope this gives some of you ideas. Have fun.

I discovered your site on Google.

Tenga is great! I purchased mine from CVS online. I followed the instructions successfully and cleaned it good. It gets funky after a while. Thanks for the tip! I use mineral oil as a lubricant. It works great and isn’t expensive. Tenga’s a great stress relief when your watching a skin-flick and need a real quickie!

Have fun guys!

Just received the DT cup I ordered for my partner and glad I found this site. Though, after reading through the comments I must say…quit using rubbing alcohol on your toys! They make toy cleaner for a reason (and not just for ladies’s toys). The toy cleaner is gentler, will take care of those microbes that will want to grow in the crevices, and will not degrade the material of your toy as quickly as the alcohol.

So… i was wondering, if you use it with a condom, do you have to clean it? Or using one removes the need to clean it at all?

I bought one today. Depp Throat Tenga. Amazing, loks like real thing. I use it without condom…to get the real feeling. After using I realized I could not clean it, and came on Google. Glad I found this site, just cleaned it. Hard to open, cannot figure how to make the silicon attach to sides how it was before. As someone told before, this is not a really easy product to clean, fabricant says it can be used only one time. Shame on that. At least I´m glad that I´ve used it, I´ll try that more expensive version or get an flashlight that seens totally reusable.

My brother recommended I may like this web site. He was entirely right. This publish actually made my day. You can not consider just how so much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!

I bought several Fleshlights over the years and they are totally reusable and easy to clean, even the “reusable” Tenga “flip” claims to be useful for only 50 uses. This retails for around 18 dollars on eBay so this can be an easy foot in the door to try out a Tenga.

Wow, thanks bro! I got one without knowing it was one use. Thanks for letting me know!

Just used it! It was amazing! Biggest cum I’ve ever had

I have one and it is great! I now find it hard to sleep when we go away and I sleep on anything else. It does get sotfer over time. It also molds to your body; give it a few weeks. The temperature of the room also depends on the softness. The warmer it is the sotfer it will be and visa versa. We flip ours every 6 months and I know right away that my spot is not there. After a few days, it’s back. Enjoy. It will get better!

Hello, i think that i saw you visited my blog thus i got here to return the choose.I am trying to to find issues to enhance my site!I guess its adequate to use a few of your ideas!! abebgbdceada

hey dude, i just buy my first tenga cup Deep Throat. but, when i try to clean it, it looks like there’s a hole near the air cousion hole. its make my juice’s leaking. is it normal or its broken?
(sorry for bad english)

Lol aside from the great sex my partner and I had this forum has made us giggle in the most positive way. Isn’t it great that we can communicate so openly about a topic that is almost considered taboo world wide. Thank you for posting!

Oh btw we just removed all foam inserts just to be safe…

It’s a shame you’re not still reviewing toys!

Just got one of these and a vr head set…
