We were given reusable catheters for self catheter. What do you use to clean the catheter.?


JosephV: Intermittent catheterization

Intermittent catheterization: Wash catheters with a warm, soapy water and rinse well, inside and out. You can also use a syringe to flush the catheter. Dry the catheter with a towel. Place catheter on paper towel to dry for one hour. After it is dry, place it in a container with the alcohol for five minutes. A CISC catheter may be reused for up to 2 to 4 weeks. Agent used Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) is available inexpensively at most retail pharmacies. After cleaning, rinse once with 70% alcohol and then with 90-91% alcohol to help dry the catheter.


Whatever the maker says. Follow instructions, not some idiot on the Internet (and I hope I am not one).
