Care and cleaning of the Crystal Delights Crystal Minx

I’ve been asked by many people how I maintain my Crystal Delights Crystal Minx tails. The glass plug is easy to maintain. Before and after each use, I wash the glass plug down with antibacterial soap and warm water. I don’t use any drastic methods to sterilize it since I’m the only one using my Crystal Minx and the glass plug itself is non-porous (meaning bacteria doesn’t get in and make a home in it).

The cleaning of the fur is where it can get a little tricky. My fur has been subject to occasional drops of lube, but that is fairly easy to clean. I use a damp (not dripping wet) washcloth to dab the affected area. I then run my fingers through the dampened fur to separate the moist hairs from each other and to minimize the spread of moisture to the dry fur. I then hang my tail to dry.

Even though the temptation to speed up the drying process may be present, I don’t directly expose the fur to any heat sources since fur manages to dry fairly quick all on its own. And last I checked, wild, fur covered animals don’t use blow dryers as a way of drying themselves off in the big outdoors.

Once my fur is spot cleaned with the above mentioned method, I leave my tail out on a shelf where it can “breathe” and not be stifled by a bag until I am able to use my tail again. Don’t store the Crystal Minx in a damp place in general, but doubly so if the fur is damp. Remember, a moldy tail is a sad tail.

I have heard of methods of real fur cleaning that involve sawdust or cornstarch but since I’ve never tried either method I hesitate to recommend those. If you do try them (at your own risk and not my suggestion) and it worked, feel free to let me know how it worked (or didn’t).

    I have many people tell me they wouldn’t buy a real fur tail because of the cleaning issues. Has having to maintain your tail given you any doubts about buying or maintaining another piece? Would the cleaning process stop you from recommending any other person purchase a tail?

    Thanks Minx!

      The cleaning “issues” are definitely not enough to prevent me from getting other fur pieces. Its easy to take care of and keep clean and my love for the quality tails will win over any hassle of cleaning them if there were a hassle to begin with. I would definitely tell people that this is a product worth buying and maintaining properly.

    Thank you for this! I want my tail to stay luxurious as long as possible. I guess I’ll just mellow out and remember that real foxes pretty much get the job done with nothing but water…
