    Alcohol or antiseptic wipes. How clean are ya?

    Just curious. I've been using alcohol swabs for Injection sites. Then it occurred to me that I'm probly just moving bacteria around on my skin rather than kill it. Maybe I'm wrong. And so I come to you ASF! What's the right way. The safe way to clean injection sites. Alcohol or antiseptic.

    Pretty good question. In reality, we aren't going to kill everything living on our asses (or other places). Part of the problem is because the little nasty bugs are BELOW the top layer of skin. We're just trying to be as clean as we can reasonably be. And something is better than nothing, and one probably isn't going to be overwhelmingly better than the other.

    Here's a pretty good article on comparisons for preventing contamination in draws. Granted, it is not *exactly* in relation to killing germs, but it will give you a pretty good idea on how well the most popular "wipes" will do. So to speak.

    Having said that, if alcohol is good enough for my coke, it's good enough for my ass.

    I went to donate blood & the chick damn near painted my entire arm with povidone-iodine swab... she went ham for a minute, then stuck me with the harpoon.
    I thought, shit she spray tanned my arm & when I pin, I use a little alcohol cloth for 5 seconds... am I doing something wrong.
    They sell those iodine swans on amazon, I thought about buying a pack and seeing if there’s a difference.

    I've given countless injects over years of time. I prefer fresh out of the shower or a light alcohol swipe. The main thing is to be sure to use new sterile syringe and needles every single injection, period. You can also wipe the top of the vial for an added measure of protection.

    add: I use a new 20G to load and a new 27G to inject, I never use the same pin at all for anything

    Yep I wash my hands with antibacterial soap then wipe the vial with those CVS 70% alcohol wipettes and wipe the inject area liberally with another wipette then jab myself with the loaded syringe.

    Never had any infection yet but had a scare when needle came off and got stuck in my delt one time.
