BD Alcohol swaps are cotton, anti-bacterial swaps used for ensuring a clean and reliable site preparation for safe, hygienic insulin injections. BD alcohol swaps are thicker and softer than most other swabs. They can also be used for other anti-bacterial needs around the house.
They come individually wrapped in four layers with an air tight seal to ensure the swabs do not dry out or leak when not in use. BD alcohol swabs contain 70% isopropyl alcohol for optimum antibacterial action.
