    Unsterile needles

    Ordered some needles of ebay, and they were described as sterile. But they came in this ziplock bag and none were wrapped in individually.

    Are they safe to use, or are they dirty? Is there anyway to clean them?

    No you can't clean them. Pins should always come in a sealed wrapper.

    Never understood why people are so cheap about pins. I have hundreds of all sizes. Total cost like 50$ maybe.

    Hell when I pin and hit a spot I don't feel comfortable with. I take it out...throw that pin away and attach a brand new one even if I barely broke skin.

    No brainer except for getting you money back and leaving bad feedback as well as a warning with ebay.

    I wouldn't chance it. I would fill a complaint with eBay. You may not get your $ back but worth giving them a bad rating and posting a negative review. Ebays policies have changed over the years and seem to protect the seller more than buyer.

    Not being a dick but if you have to ask you already know the answer. I would not use them if they aren't individually wrapped

    Yes, i know they arent sterile. The point of the question was if they could be sterilized. But thanks for the answers, will throw them.

    I have a bunch that are various sizes and lengths all kept in a sharps container I will sell for 60% off and guarantee they are infection free. I'll even soak them in bleach before sending...

    Me three lol... They're so cheap I also buy em buy the box and sane w/the spikes... If I don't like the spot I'm in I change right out too! I don't understand the concept of not buying from the site sponsor for your research or any other Ned supply or hundreds of others... But I'd rather give my $$$ to the site sponsor

    You could probably sterilize them if you had the proper equipment that they use to sterilize them. But you don't.

    Your best deal is to contact ebay and your credit card company and execute a chargeback. So that you get a refund. And then go get your needles from a reputable source.
