Because of the different size combinations and color options we offer, many of these items will be created when you order them and are considered Special Order whether or not it states (Special Order) on your sales confirmation. Please allow up 1 to 8 weeks for your item to be completed.

In the event that your garment should become damaged within one year from your original purchase date we will replace it at 25% off our current full retail price. Your item must be replaced by an identical garment, reshipping fees & taxes will be applied to the purchase price before the item discount. This offer is not valid on sale items and can not be combined with any other offers or Reward Cards.

Rubber Care

Rubber care instructions are available upon request. We also send Rubber care instructions and warnings in each order we fill. If you have questions about care of your Rubber items please refer to those documents or contact us.

  • All Rubber CLOTHING & TOYS are talced for shipment and storage, to protect the Rubber.

  • Make sure your item fits before washing. A small amount of Talc and glue may be present in the seams of the garment after washing. This is normal and can be removed with a good silicone shiner and vigorous rubbing with the finger tips.

  • Wash your garment: use lukewarm water and soap(1 drop of mild soap) to wash, then rinse thoroughly! Hang to dry, then turn inside out when dry and repeat. Generally soap washing need be done only once. Rinsing should be done each time you wear your garment.

  • Transparent Rubber will have white spots or streaks after washing and most will disappear when completely dry. Your garment may need to hang dry for several hours or up to a full day to dry thoroughly. If any streaks remain a good silicone polish will make them disappear.

  • ALWAYS Store your toy or garment out of sunlight, preferably in the dark, NEVER on a metal hanger. Heat or cold may damage latex, and UV light will cause it to oxidize.

  • BEFORE attempting to put the garment on, be sure that your body and the inside of the garment is heavily talced or lubed. Slide it on gently, taking care that fingernails, rings, etc., do not snag the material. Pulling hard with your fingertips will leave permanent dimples or tear the garment.

  • MAKE IT SHINE by applying a "medical grade" silicone lube or Black Beauty, Cult, Wet, EROS, Vivishine.

  • NEVER use OIL-based lubes: they will do permanent damage! ONLY use silicone-based or water-based lubricants. Never ever use Baby Oil, ever.

  • KEEP Rubber garments away from ANY oil-based products body lotions or oils, hair gel, body glitter, makeup, hairspray, perfume; nicotine, metal including pennies will stain the Rubber; sharp objects will do permanent damage to your garment.

  • Human Skin has oils and salts that can break down Rubber if not removed promptly. Wash after every wearing.

Rubber Chlorination

We do not chlorinate or recommend chlorination for several reasons. First, the chlorination process is not an exact science, (yes, yes we know there is science behind the process) generally we've heard that people chlorinate in the bathtub or a bucket in the backyard. In our experience chlorination changes the rubber to make it feel more like plastic. It has been our observation that chlorinated pieces can become brittle, especially if not chlorinated correctly. "Correctly", is a very vague term because the chlorine is actually added in with Hydrochloric Acid, (HCL) and to date we have not seen that it is actually "good" for the long term health of Rubber. Chlorination can change the color of Rubber, ie: Black will turn to gray. Finally, we find chlorination to be unnecessary. Repeated use of Vivishine or a good silicone lube will achieve the same or better results with no damage to the Rubber.
