    RE: c-diff

    Hi I think this link will answer your question.

    https://books.google.gr/books?id=PQD2AgAAQBAJ&;pg=PA112&lpg=PA112&dq=c-diff+from+sex+toys&source=bl&ots=6pld7Rb1ii&sig=nNpf5cFKTdX1SATgJo1TANgHyCA&hl=en&sa=X&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=c-diff%20from%20sex%20toys&f=false

    But if your not cleaning your toys the right way then there's your answer. OK

        So, one could get c-diff if toys are not properly cleaned/ I use antibacterial soap. Is that good for smooth as well as a more porous toy?

        Hi If you have porous toys they would not be good, but as long as you a real good sterilizing if the not plastic of some kind try microwaving them, as its a great way for killing off any bugs. OK

        "The recommended approach to environmental infection control with respect to C. difficile is meticulous cleaning followed by disinfection using hypochlorite-based germicides as appropriate" Source: https://www.cdc.gov/hai/pdfs/eic_in_HCF_03.pdf

        hypochlorite = bleach (usually 1:10)

        "C. difficile-associated diarrhea rates were shown to have decreased markedly in a bone-marrow transplant unit (from 8.6 to 3.3 cases per 1,000 patient-days) during a period of bleach disinfection (1:10 dilution) of environmental surfaces compared with cleaning with a quaternary ammonium compound. Because no EPA-registered products exist that are specific for inactivating C. difficile spores, use of diluted hypochlorite should be considered in units with high C. difficile rates. Acidified bleach and regular bleach (5000 ppm chlorine) can inactivate 106 C. difficile spores in <10 minutes 262. However, studies have shown that asymptomatic patients constitute an important reservoir within the health-care facility and that person-to-person transmission is the principal means of transmission between patients. Thus, combined use of hand washing, barrier precautions, and meticulous environmental cleaning with an EPA-registered disinfectant (e.g., germicidal detergent) should effectively prevent spread of the organism 263."

        How do you know your sex toys have c-diff? Did someone who had the symptoms use it? If so, soak it in bleach for 10 minutes, or throw it away.
