Caring for my personal toys? More after the jump. (NSFW)

Since I have a decent sized collection of sexual toys, books, and DVDs along with a number of lingerie items, wigs, and masks, I recently bought the following suitcase to house them (which would also allow me to store more items in the future).
Besides finally getting a proper case for these items, I’ve also realized I have a few question on how to best care of things like my vibrators as well as traveling with them.
1) I’ve read that I should use a “toy cleaner” for some of my vibrators – but I have no idea what I should use. Do you have any recommendations?
2) How should my vibrators be kept in the suit case? In baggies or what? I know about removing the batteries though.
3) In a number of months, I’ll be going to Japan for my job, which is sort of making me nervous. Should I be worried about Customs? Are the Japanese going to be inclined to confiscate anything (my DVDs aren’t child porn, but those ones parodying movies, like PoTC)?
4) Which brings me to: How worried should I be about my checked bag? Can’t I just lock it (NOT with a TSA approved lock, thank you very much – those are pretty shitty) and not worry about it, or are airport security going to want to pry open my bag due to a “suspicious” looking x-ray….or their own damned curiosity and light fingers?
Yes, I’m worried about my collection traveling overseas. I realize the bag could get lost, but oddly that doesn’t worry be as much as someone just stealing shit out of my bag. While losing the entire bag would be a loss of at least $500 worth of items (including the actual bag), it’s not as concerning as someone just being able to open it and take items out of it.
I already plan to take pictures of everything that will be checked, sex items or not, but should I….what, put a note inside my bag? “All of my items have been photographed – thieves be warned”?
Also, if you have any other tips on caring for such items (including the lingerie), I’d appreciate it.
-Also- also, if you have any recommendations for making my collection more….luxurious (ex. The lingerie and my new silk kimono are luxurious, whereas nail polish, to me at least, is not)? I’d appreciate that too. Heh, I don’t have a boyfriend – this collection is really just for me, so don’t feel you have to have two in mind. For example, I can’t seem to find lubricants (for shower, for dryer situations, etc) that don’t feel like they’re burning me from the inside out – many, when they say they’re “warming” or “just for her” or whatever, actually are really painful and distracting.
Anyway, I realize this question is going several directions at once (and really long and far too full of parentheses hah), but I hope you’ll understand my main theme which is – I need tips on caring for my personal collection of sexy “things”. Could you please help me?
