A fairly odd question.

I'm moving house shortly, so I'm beginning the process of decluttering and obviously chucking loads of utter useless crap stuff away... but, this process has got me thinking... How on earth does one dispose of a... ahem... blush <whispers> vibrator. Do they go in the bin? The recycling? Burn them to destroy the evidence? What if it's in the bin and a stray fox tears open the binbag and all your neighbours realise it's not your phone they've been hearing through the wall?!

I'm just curious really. And I absolutely promise I am not a creepy sex-toy troll but I can definitely see that I might appear that way.

Put it in a bag full of crap and take it to the tip.

I would put it in several bags and dump it in a public bin rather than mine, f I were that worried.

Give it a rinse and stick in a charity shop?


Waste not want not.

Switch it on and lob it in your neighbours' bin grin

Clean it and post it anonymously to someone you don't like.

Make sure you use a sharpie marker on the large envelope to mark it as 'DILDO' so that the post man can handle it with care.

Stick in the bin of a 'respectable-looking neighbour and don't forget to recycle the batteries first.

Hahahaha, brilliant answers.

I'm going to have to invest in some extra strong binliners... or a sharpie marker grin

There is a skip for small electrical items at the tip.

TonyThePony Fri 07-Feb-14 16:39:07

Jean, I just got an image of me proudly waggling my vibrator in the air looking for the electrical items section in the tip.

Not sure why I feel I'd have to proudly waggle it.

Love honey used to have a disposal scheme with a discount for your next purchase attached to it.

Glue and glitter are your friends here. Keeps the kids occupied for hours and you get a lovely christmas ornament to keep.

How well do you get on with your MIL? grin

Give it to your local art college. It will come in handy when the students have to make sculpture out of modern household appliances.

Put it on a shelf at Currys with a price tag.

Put a bit of ribbon on it = a unicorn costume.

I wouldn't take it to the skip, I once threw lots of black bin bags (full of rubbish) into the huge skip at our local recycling plant. Went back to the car to fetch the last lot and on my return found one of the men who worked there had fished one of my bags out and was emptying the contents out?

Can you imagine if it had been a bag full of unicorn horns blush

Bury it in your garden with any other embarrassing items - a sort of porno-timecapsule.

You can probably sell it on eBay as used and make a fortune from some weirdo.
