    The Science of Sex: How to clean up a Clone-A-Willy molding gel spill.

    Oh, no! While creating a mold of your penis you've accidentally spilled some of the alginate molding gel on the floor.  How should you clean it up?  It all depends on what kind of floor you’re dealing with...

    HARD FLOORS (Vinyls, laminates, hardwoods, linoleum, tile):

    Cleanup is simple.  The alginate will easily peel off of any smooth surface. Before it completely hardens, just pull it up.  On a hard floor it'll come up as a single piece, completely and without trouble.  For softer, more porous wood floors, it’s just as easy to pull away the spill, but you may want to wipe down the area with a damp cloth afterward to ensure it's completely clean.  

    CARPET:

    A carpet spill is much trickier.  The alginate molding powder in your Clone-A-Willy Kit is sterile and won’t stain the fibers in your carpet, but it will adhere itself to the fibers. The longer it’s left to dry, the harder it will be to remove.  Try to get the spill cleaned up before it dries completely, but don’t attempt to clean it up while it’s still a liquid - you’ll just scrub it in deeper and make it worse. Let it gel first (minimum 4 minutes), then use a dull knife to pick out the alginate from the area. It may take a bit of time, but it will come out.

    If you’re trying to remove the spill after it’s already completely hardened, add a few tablespoons of trisodium phosphate to a cup of hot water and pour it over the area first.  Let it sit for 20-30 minutes to soften things up, then follow the steps above. Again, it can be a bit tricky to get every little piece out, but once it has been removed from the fibers there should be no stain or mark left behind whatsoever.
    Avoid the use of Alkali detergents or alcohol-based cleaning detergents, as they may permanently discolor the area.

    The Science of Sex: Sodium Alginate and 5 popular foods that contain it.

    by David Claus, Ph.D.

    Q: How is the Clone-A-Willy Kit able to create such perfectly detailed, true to size and shape molds (negatives) of penises?
    A: By using a specially buffered, top quality sodium alginate and water, of course!

    Sodium alginate is probably something you've never heard of, but you've almost certainly been exposed to it, and most likely you've already eaten pounds of it.  But what exactly is it?

    Sodium alginate is a hydrocolloid; a substance that forms a gel when mixed with water. More specifically, it's a natural polysaccharide that's extracted from the cell walls of brown seaweed... the same stuff you see floating out in the ocean. Its function is to give flexibility to the seaweed, but this property also makes it ideal for use in many other  products.

    Aside from making perfect impressions of teeth and other bodyparts, alginates are commonly used as thickeners and emulsifiers (stabilizers) in sauces, syrups, ice cream toppings, hamburgers, and other foods. There's a good chance one of your favorites is below!

     

    1. Ice Cream and Popsicles - Sodium alginate is used as a stabilizer in ice cream popsicle penis kitto ensure a creamy texture and prevent ice crystals from forming during freezing. In fruit flavored popsicles, it helps distribute fruit uniformly during the freezing process, and helps stop dripping while eating.
    2. hamburger penis kitHamburgers - Sodium alginate is often added to hamburger meat in order to increase volume, making it more filling and possibly even healthier. Adding a bit of sodium alginate increases soluble fiber content without changing taste, and soluble fiber is something sorely missing from many American diets.
    3. Dairy Products and Yogurt - Yup, alginate is even found in chocolate milk, eggnog, and yogurt. It's added to increase viscosity and make the mixture smoother.  It's also a clarifying agent and stabilizer.
    4. Sauces and Dressings - Water-oil emulsions such as mayonnaise and salad dressings thickened with sodium alginate are less likely to separate into their original oil and water. It also works great on sauces and gravy's to prevent separation while naturally extending their shelf life.
    5. Pudding and Pie Fillings - Puddings, pie fillings and mousses also utilize the gelpie penis kit-forming and non-melting properties of sodium alginate.


    Sodium alginate is a completely safe, easy to use gelling agent that requires no heat or harsh chemicals to bring out its beneficial properties, making it ideal for all kinds of uses.  But using it to make a clone of your willy is arguably the most fun!

    The Science of Sex: Not all silicones are the same - Tin vs Platinum-cure.

    by David Claus, Ph.D.
    Silicone is justifiably considered the gold-standard of sex toy materials, but few people actually know that there are important differences in the types of silicones.  CLONE-A-WILLY uses only a platinum catalyzed silicone.  Below is a quick breakdown of tin-catalyzed vs platinum-catalyzed silicones.

    Why a PLATINUM-CATALYZED (platinum-cure) SILICONE is a far superior sex toy material than a TIN-CATALYZED (tin-cure) SILICONE

     

    LONGEVITY

    • Tin cure silicones are inexpensive and typically used as molds (negatives), not as casts (positives), due to the fact that tin silicones have what's called a short 'library life.'  This essentially means they become brittle over time, and will eventually deform and lose their elasticity.  They are usually used as temporary 'molds' or sealants, not as finished, permanent pieces. 

    • A high quality platinum-cure silicone is much more expensive, is typically designed specifically to be used as a finished (cast) piece, and will not break down, deform, or lose its elasticity over time.

    TOXICITY

    • While curing, tin silicones create byproducts in the form of alcohols and/or acids.  They release a strong, bitter smell due to these byproducts outgassing from the resin.  A tin silicone will continue to react with O2 in the atmosphere over time, and tends to eventually deform and break down.  

    • A platinum cure silicone releases no toxic byproducts whatsoever before, during, or after cure, and the bonds formed are completely stable and non-reactive.  This means your finished Platinum silicone toy will last, and stay exactly the same as the day you pulled it from the mold. 

    CONTAMINATION

    • Tin silicones cure very easily; almost nothing will inhibit them from solidifying.  This means that tin silicones are subject to multiple contaminants.  They will cure up no matter what's in them.  This leaves a tin silicone open to all sorts of potentially toxic contaminants; compounds that can be missed by the manufacturer.  Without doing your own lab test, you really can't be sure whats in a tin silicone. 

    • When it comes to sex toys, you want to be sure it's safe to use internally.  A platinum cure silicone will not set up if it contains impurities.  It's like doing your own lab safety check.  A platinum silicone must contain no contaminants, or it won't set up.

    ODORS

    • Tin silicones release toxic and potentially toxic alcohols and/or acids when mixed.  There's a strong, bitter odor or outgassing that accompanies a tin silicone.  

    • Platinum cure silicones release no toxic compounds when mixed, have zero smell or outgassing, and are completely non toxic.

    CURE TIME

    • Tin cure silicones take at least a week to reach full cure. They are known as 'condensation-cure' silicones, which require contact with water (pulled from atmospheric air or from your water-based mold) for 7+ days, until the resin has fully and completely set up.  If you're making a cast of your penis, you'll need to leave a tin silicone inside the water-saturated mold for a week or more, otherwise your dildo WILL shrink.  

    • A Platinum cure silicone sets up fully and completely within hours and will never shrink.  

    STABILITY

    • Platinum cure silicones allow for a low 'cross link density' without compromising stability.  What this means is that it allows for a soft, flexible copy that still remains completely stable, even over time.  

    • A tin cure silicone will continue to react to moisture, sunlight, and other environmental exposures. It WILL lose it's properties over time.  

    COLORING

    • Tin cure silicones can accept almost any pigment you can find.  Again, without doing your own lab tests you have no idea what's potentially in the pigments within a tin cure silicone resin.  

    • Platinum cure silicones require pure pigments free of additives or potentially toxic metals like lead, aluminum, cadmium or mercury.  

      HEALTH EFFECTS

      • Tin cure silicones contain organic-tin bonds (molecules containing tin and carbon), which are considered by many to be the most dangerous form of tin exposure for humans. Organic-tin bonds are used in paints and plastics, and are extremely common in pesticides. Nowadays we know the consequences of tin poisoning, including immune system malfunction and chromosomal and brain damage, so we try to avoid tin wherever possible.  Still, it's not uncommon to find it in everyday things.

      • Exposure to quality platinum silicones causes no ill health effects. 

       

      THE TAKEAWAY

      • Try to avoid tin catalyzed or hybrid silicone sex toys.  What's a simple way to tell the difference?  Smell it.  There should never be any smell in a sex toy.
