Steralizing a syringe.
    #2708678 - 05/21/04 12:20 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Since no one answered my question yet here yet and I'm planning on doing it tomorrow because my jars are cooling right now can I just wipe down my syringe, maybe fill it up and squirt it out, with alcohol to stertalize it for my karo solution?

This has been asked a few times this week already. You can sterilize by sucking up boiling water, microwaving the syringe with a bit of water inside, or pressure cook it. Search for reusing syringe if you need more answers or ideas...

I was assuming boil/PC it if you need sterile water in it for spores. I do not. Just a sterile, empty syringe. I figured alcohol would be easier then boiling it and shit. Maybe Im worg though, that's why I asked.

I put about 1cc of alcohol in a used syringe.
Let water boil for 10 min.
Fill syringe let set about 3 min.
Shot out water into sink.
Repeat 2 more times.
Last time keep water in syringe. Water is sterile.

Sence your doing karo no need to save sterile water.
:goodluck:


PM me IF I can help

Sure alcohol will work, as will bleach. Just be sure to get the residue out. You still need to go through all the work of sterilizing the water though. It is about actually sterilizing the syringe to make sure there not any type of spores present, or living organisms contaminating your syringe. It is best to sterilize the whole thing, or use chemical treatments that would then be flushed out with sterile water.

Therefore you still need to go through a bit more work than just sucking up alcohol. There is always a bit of fluid that cannot be removed by simply pushing the plunger (especially with 16ga or so needles). This needs to be flushed out with water that is boiled or microwaved to kill contaminants so you do not introduce them to the syringe in the flushing process.

That should be clear... :grin:
