Notes on using cotton swabs Pay attention to the shelf life
The cotton swabs come from the hospital and are mostly wrapped in double paper.
The cotton swabs are sterilized at high temperature and pressure, and their shelf life is usually two weeks when they are unopened.
However, in humid areas in the south, or during the plum rains in the spring, cotton swabs are likely to last only a week or so because the paper is prone to moisture, allowing bacteria to penetrate into the packaging.
It is important to preserve cotton swabs
When storing cotton swabs, make sure that the package is airtight, and pay attention to the swabs should be stored in a room with no relative humidity exceeding 80%, non-corrosive gas and good ventilation to avoid high temperature.
Household cotton swabs should not be used to disinfect wounds
Ordinary families usually use cotton swabs are not many, there is no condition to open 24 hours after the remaining cotton swabs for re-sterilization treatment.
Therefore, it is recommended to use those cotton pads as normal cosmetic cotton pads, or discard them. Do not use them for wound treatment, especially for baby.
Sterile cotton swabs are necessary to disinfect the skin, and once contaminated, they can cause an infection in the wound.
Some people think that cotton swabs should be dipped in alcohol, iodine and other disinfectants anyway, and a little bacteria is not in the way.
They don't know that disinfection and sterilization are two different concepts.
Disinfection is to kill pathogenic microorganisms on articles;
Sterilization is the complete elimination of all pathogenic and non-pathogenic microorganisms on an article, including spores.
Sterilization includes disinfection, and disinfection cannot replace sterilization.
That is to say, although the disinfectant such as alcohol and iodophor can kill pathogenic microorganisms, if the cotton swab is not sterile, but with spores and other microorganisms, then the disinfectant has no way to it, and even the disinfectant will therefore be contaminated.
Therefore, to ensure the sterility of cotton swabs is an important measure to prevent infection.
