For quality assurance, GRS vaginal dilators are inspected, cleaned, and sealed before shipping.

What Lubricant Can You Use With a GRS Vaginal Dilator?
You can use any natural oil or water-based lubricant with a GRS vaginal dilator. DO NOT use Vaseline or any silicone-based lubricant, especially with silicone dilators.

Can You Sterilize a GRS Vaginal Dilator by Boiling or Autoclave?
GRS vaginal dilators can NEVER be autoclaved or boiled.

You can sterilize silicone dilators by autoclaving or boiling them for five minutes. If you have a history of recurrent yeast infections, add two tablespoons of vinegar to two quarts of water for boiling.

How Can You Clean a GRS Vaginal Dilator?
Wash your GRS vaginal dilator with warm water and gentle soap. Pat it dry with a clean towel and allow it to dry before storing it away. We recommend storing your dilators in a clean cotton cloth.

Also, you can store your GRS dilators in the storage pouch that comes with the device. NEVER soak your GRS vaginal dilator in sterilizing solutions that contain alcohol. You can wipe your GRS dilator with an alcohol-based solution, but ensure that you rinse off any residue before storing it away.

Does Your Medical Insurance Cover GRS Vaginal Dilators?
Whether your medical insurance covers GRS dilators or not depends on your particular medical insurance policy. Check with your insurance provider to confirm whether or not you have coverage.

That’s everything you need to know about GRS vaginal dilators. Now, you can decide whether this device is the right fit for you.
