How do you sterilize a used syringe?
    #1185335 - 01/02/03 12:46 PM (21 years, 5 months ago)

What is the proper way of sterilizing a used syringe after use? I was wondering if it could be wrapped in aluminum foil and pressure cooked.

I usually just wash them with antibacterial dish soap, then boil them for about a half hour. Afterward I heat the needle point to red hot and then wipe the syringe down with rubbing alchohol. I never had contam problems doing it that way.

Fill the syringe with boiling water and expunge after it is cooled. Repeat 2-3 more times and you should be good. For the needle tip flame sterilize then wipe with isopropyl alcohol.

there are several ways.

I like to suck some alcohol into my used syringes right after using them and then let them soak for a few hours then squirt the alcohol out.
Heat up some water to a boil and suck in some boiling water and squirt it out....repeating about 4 or 5 times.
The last time you can leave the water in and let it cool down in the syringe.
Or you can put the syringe in aluminum foil and pressure cook it.

i dont think it would need to be in there an hour, probably only a couple minutes.

This may sound un-orthodox but it works great for me. Fill the syringe with water and microwave till you see the water boiling in the syringe. I do this a couple of times. I also place a coffee cup in there full of water and use that boiling water for my last draw of sterile water..hence a very sterile syringe. I`ve never seen any sparks or electrical arc to the needle yet....lol,must not be enough metal to bother the oven.... I`ve made over 20 syringes this way and not one bad one yet
