Remember that we store according to the most fragile material, or the most fragile, and take into account the different materials that make up your BDSM accessories.

When in doubt, more security is preferable, to make your instruments last over time.

Storage of BDSM accessories in organic materials

Organic materials are sensitive to temperature variations and humidity. They are “alive” and therefore need to be stored in a way that doesn’t make them work too hard, or risk mold.

Here are some of the most common compositions of BDSM accessories made from organic materials.

 

From animals :

  • Silk: Silk is very soft, and to maintain this softness for a long time, it’s best to avoid rubbing it against other, harder materials during storage. A pouch helps preserve the fibers easily. And to avoid damage.
  • Leather: Leather is sensitive to rubbing, knocks and bends, temperature variations and mildew. It’s best to store your leather accessories suspended by their strap, on a hanger, or in another position that allows them to retain their shape. And keep them in a place with sufficient ventilation. Remember to check your leather accessories regularly, to make sure they stay well nourished and don’t develop mildew.
  • Manes and other hair: Hair is sensitive to mildew, rubbing and folding if it’s thick. It’s best to keep them hung up, away from humidity.

From plants :

  • Soy and rapeseed waxes: These materials are mainly used for candles, but are very sensitive to shocks and temperature variations. It’s best to store them in a separate box, with tissue paper or foam between them and underneath.
  • Latex: To store latex, it must first be talcum powdered. It’s best to store it hanging or flat; if it’s folded, make sure there’s talcum powder everywhere. It should not come into contact with metal, and should be kept dry and away from light.
  • Cotton, linen, sisal, jute, hemp, coconut fiber: These materials are mainly used for shibari ropes, which are sensitive to mildew, rubbing and folding, and you’ll need to make sure that the strands stay tight. Leave as much room as possible for your strings to unfurl; keeping them too tight or knotted will encourage rubbing and mildew, and make them more fragile more quickly. Instead, tie them loosely to let them breathe.
  • Wood: Wood is sensitive to shocks, temperature changes and mildew (although proper treatment can prevent mildew). It’s best to store your wooden BDSM accessories suspended, and above all to avoid them colliding with other hard materials.Wood also works hard when exposed to temperature changes: it will swell or contract, which can deform it, so store it in a place where the temperature remains relatively stable.

Storage of metal BDSM accessories

  • Metal with surface treatment (often nickel) or paint: These metals are particularly sensitive to impact, which can damage the surface treatment that protects the metal underneath, which can then rust. Care should therefore be taken to ensure that these parts touch other hard materials as little as possible.
  • Brass: Brass is sensitive to shocks and humidity, which can lead to oxidation.
  • Stainless steel: This metal is fairly easy to care for, but is sensitive to impacts with hard materials, which will eventually damage it.
  • Gold and silver: These metals are particularly sensitive to shocks, which can weaken them.

Storage of BDSM accessories in artificial materials

  • Paraffin wax: used for candles, it requires the same care as other waxes.
  • Fiber optics: Fiber optics are very sensitive to bends and shocks, which can cause them to break. They should be stored suspended or flat.
  • PVC and plastic: These materials are very sensitive to bending and sometimes to shocks. Above all, they should be kept upright, and it’s best to hang them up. Avoid high temperatures and storing them against other plastics.
  • Nylon and paracord: These fibers are relatively resistant to humidity and temperature changes. For whips, however, it’s best to keep them suspended, so that they unfurl in mid-air.eux.

In conclusion, plan a certain amount of storage space for your BDSM accessories, so you can keep them for as long as possible.
