    Can I use peroxide to disinfect?

    Is peroxide basically the same thing as rubbing alchohol for disinfecting for injecting?

    peroxide doesn't kill all bacteria....neither does alcohol swabbing, really, but alcohol is the way to go.

    Hey and rubbing alcohol is like 40 cents. Come on, $300 in gear deserves the best 40 cents has to offer.

    For the brief period of time of exposure to alcohol that swabbing gives, it's more of a just a good "wiping away" of any microbes. It'll kill some, but in any event, it's much closer to sterile than not using anything.
