sterile needle and cap.....?
    #1748637 - 07/25/03 05:04 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

my cactus has brand new syringes .... but no new needles or caps .....
however he does have some that were used only once ...... can he use the lightly used needles and caps on the new syringes to make new steriles syringes from prints .....?

any recommended method to make the caps and needles sterile also ?

:syringe: :thumbup: :thumbdown: :confused:

i reuse syringes/needles like this:

first everything is taken apart and cleaned with hot soapy water. you can use a paper towel and a pencil to get down in the syringe tube. squirt soapy water through the needle. then use some isopropyl and rinse. next wrap in saran wrap (i like to do the syringes and needles/caps separately). then, rewrap in tinfoil and pop them in the PC. when they come out the plastic wrap will have melted together inside the foil forming a seal that will keep them good til you're ready to use. you'll need a knife/scalpel to get them open.

hope that helps

peace,

Yes you can. just place the new tips on your syringe and draw boiling water into the syringe and shoot it out a few times.

-draw some water in then place the cap on
-place some aluminiun foil around the cap
-boil for good 10-15min
-let cool and keep foil on till use
-enjoy

If you cant beat them, join them, then beat them!
