How Can I Clean the Bathmate Hydropump If I Don't Have the Cleaning Kit?

How Should I Clean My Bathmate?
(If I Don't Have the Cleaning Kit?)

The Bathmate Xtreme comes with the cleaning kit, but the individual pumps (Hercules, Goliath, x30/x40 - non-Xtreme) don't automatically come with it.

If you don't have a cleaning kit, no worries, you can clean your pump safety and easily.

One easy way to clean your pump is to put it in the dishwasher. 

The Bathmate is washable up to 80°C according to the official Bathmate instruction manual.

Unless your dishwasher's drying cycle is unbearably hot (to the point where it would melt plastic utensils), I would encourage you to leave your pump in for the entire cycle.

Another potential cleaning method is to put it in the washing machine on a 'delicate' cycle.

This must be done with a load of clothes to prevent your pump from hitting the sides of the tub (where the clothing usually is) when in a spin cycle. 

If either of these ways seem risky or weird to you - just clean your pump with anti-bacterial soap and hot water.

You can do it while in the shower if you want.

Make sure to get all the soap out of the cylinder and let your Bathmate dry as normal.

Truth be told, aside from dumping some shampoo or body wash in the cylinder a couple of times, I didn't clean my Hercules pump once in 4 years.

I don't recommend that you forgo cleaning your pump, anything that you leaving in the shower under time with be loaded with soap scum and bacteria.

I never got any rashes or breakouts around my pubic region though.

Perhaps I was lucky though.

In Conclusion

Anti-bacterial soap and hot water will do the job, but you can put your Bathmate in the dishwasher or washing machine (with a bunch of clothes) to get it clean.
