    Try using some rubbing alcohol (isopropanol) on it.

    There is a possibility that what you may be experiencing is not mold. Sometimes sleeves may acquire something that may resemble little grayish to slightly greenish "clumps, blemishes," or "boogers" because each sleeve is manufactured differently. This occurrence usually happens when your FL makes contact with the dirt and oils contained within our hands, and possibly from other outside sources. These are not harmful to your FL in any way, but, can be problematic for the eyes. As TPH has mentioned there are a number of cleaning solutions like isopropyl alcohol which has a several benefits for different reasons. There are other remedies that fellow forumers have come around to such as creating a pasty mixture between cornstarch and water, and then taking the substance against these clumps to hopefully address the problem. I myself have tried using face wash free of oils on my FL sleeves in hopes that it removed these so called mold clumps, and for the most part it has proven itself effective for me. Sadly, the trade off was having the sleeve become sticky on me. Hopefully this was informative for you. There is no need to apologize for your english . I feel that you got your point through just fine.

    Thank you for the answers!
    I don't get one thing: how could that stuff being "problematic" for the eyes??? I don't understand O.o
    I've noticed that stuff is not inside, I've checked pretty well and I'm quite sure is just on the outside. I've tried to attach a photo but this forum doesn't allow to me If you know how can I show you it, just let me know... I've already tried with "attachments" and imageshack... :-/

    Try posting the links with the "h" left off the beginning; i.e. "ttp://www."

    Also, when he said problematic for the eyes, he just meant they look bad to you. There is no physical danger to your eyes.

    Hehe, thanks TPH for clarifying my point. The way I worded out my points can pass off as confusing, so I do apologize. Yes... There is absolutely no health or physical dangers to your eyes. You are perfectly safe. These little clumps are just very unsightly.

    I Know this topic is a little old, but I would like to kick it anyway.

    The other day I was inspecting mij Fleshies and got a bit of a schock. I found the little "boogers" on a couple of them. Mainly on the ones I used more often.
    Can someone with personal experience confirm that the little sticky balls that look somewhat greyish/greenish are normal and definately not mould?

    Soak in warm to hot water, alcohol bath, let dry then powder.

    If these remain, you may have mold. It is difficult to say as FL (especially unpowdered recently ones) are sticky little devils and will attract all sorts of things. If you have a pic, we can look but mold on my past FL (long story) has been of the more near dime sized variety and very dark. And it was nearly flat to the material, not "balls" or what have you.

    Its never a bad idea to do a full cleaning, especially on the higher usage FL. Its a pain to find your method at first but once you do, its barely an inconvenience and worth it.

    I never directly handle any of my Fleshlight Sleeves without completely washing and drying my hands, haven't had any boogers since I started doing this.

    Thanks for the answers guys!

    I took two pictures and placed them at fleshter.tumblr.com

    I always wash my fleshies well with warm water after use. I'll give the soaking and washing a try.

    Ok, so if anyone doesn't want to go through the trouble of deciphering that photo link from Vergineallocco, here it is:



    It's not mould, as Tito88 has stated.

    I have a technique for removing "stuff" from the Fleshlight material, using corn starch as an abrasive cleanser. I've posted it many times here in the forum.


    Read my posts in the following threads, there's a few variations, but you'll get the general idea:

    Thanks for making it easier to see the photo. And youre dead right, thats no mold. Not even close.

    And while I know its becoming tiring for you, keep sharing that corn starch cleaning tip of yours. I had figured it out by necessity, but now knowing how useful that tip is, I hope others realize it and give you credit.

    It seriously saved one of my sleeves from being relegated to an emergency only type sleeve.

    Those methods work well, they helped me removed the boogers of my first FL the STU, all my others are booger free and will remain that way.

    Pro-tip: If you want your sleeves to stay clean looking, treat them like a piece of meat. Never handle them with unwashed hands and never let them come in contact with a surface that you wouldn't put food on. If you must pat them down with some kind of towel, use a microfiber cloth (lint from other types of cloth can also discolor FL sleeves). Regular cornstarching is critical to preventing goobers/boogers.

    Thanks for all the tips and advice guys! I am now reasonably convinced that my fleshies are in good health. I will attempt the cleaning tips as well when I get to it, and post here how it turned out.

    Keep up the good work
