Probably the number one complaint of Fleshjack owners is that the maintenance is a hassle. I wrote about this in my review of the Fleshjack Ice Bottom, but for those who don’t want to read through that I’ve created a simple step-by-step guide to caring for your Fleshjack with minimal effort.
- Fill a basin with warm water. Do not add any form of soap or detergent, as this will damage the Superskin sleeve of the Fleshjack.
- Unscrew both caps of the Fleshjack and remove the insert from the case.
- Submerge the insert and the case – including both caps – in the basin of water.
- Rinse off the case and the caps, then remove from the water and towel dry.
- Upturn the caps, and place them approximately 6 cm apart on the counter for later.
- Use your hands to agitate the insert in the water. Place a finger into each end of the insert and wiggle them to dislodge any lubricant and bodily fluids that are stuck to the inside.
- Hold the insert under a tap and rinse out the inside.
- Check with a finger that the inside of the insert is free from residue, if not repeat steps 6 & 7.
- Gently shake any excess water from the insert, then place the large end of the insert into the large cap on the counter, and bend it to place the small end into the small cap, forming an arch.
- Leave the insert in this position to dry for a couple of hours, in a well ventilated room.
- Check that the outside of the insert is completely dry.
- To remove the stickiness of the surface, powder it with corn flour. This can be messy, so it can help to apply it with a brush. A women’s blusher brush or similar will work well.
- Place the insert back into the case. The inside may still be damp, so leave it standing upright for another hour for any remaining water to drip out.
- Once you are sure the inside is completely dry, screw the end caps back on, and put away.
There you have it, your Fleshjack should be as good as new, and ready to go the next time you’re in the mood.
