Ostomy appliance cleansers are liquid solutions used to clean and deodorize urinary supplies like catheter bags and urine bottles. Regularly cleaning your urinary supplies not only reduces odor, it also extends their lifespan. Urinary appliance cleansers are specially formulated to break down buildup to help your urine bag or bottle to work at its best. Other types of soap or cleaning products should not be used in place of a urinary appliance cleanser. They can cause plastic and rubber materials to warp, dry out, or harden. Rinsing only with water does not effectively clean or deodorize your urological supplies.
Using a cleaning brush along with an appliance cleanser helps further sanitize your urinary supplies. The long handle allows you to clean hard-to-reach areas of a urine bottle or bag. The stiff bristles help break down stubborn calcium buildup and urine crystals without damaging your urological products.
