If there was blood on the toy and bleeding could have occurred there is a possibility of transmission.

If you are confident of your cleaning method and no hep c infected blood was present then there would be no risk.

One method to transfer hep c as an example of higher risk activity is engaging in rough sexual practices.

Bleach cleaning will eliminate the hep c virus from surfaces.
