How do you sterilize your nebs? (Boiling, baby bottle sterilizer, dishwasher, other?) How often do you clean them? (At the end of the day, after each treatment, or other?) How do you sterilize them when traveling?
I’ve tried different methods, but always come back to good ol’ fashioned boiling. And I don’t travel often, but when I do, I prefer to use disposable nebs. There’s been a time or two that I’ve microwaved them (distilled water, steam bags) while traveling, but it’s definitely not my favorite. I’m curious about your neb cleaning routines! And if you have any unique tips for sterilizing while traveling, I’d love to hear them!
@gretchendean I love how proactive you are! I’m more of a “use for the day, then throw into the cleaning pile” kinda girl. I use a different neb for each medicine, but I use the same nebs all day long (if that makes sense).
I have started to sterilize in my Instant Pot. It has a sterilizer feature. I have it set for 12 minutes. I wasn’t sure how long to set it for and wasn’t able to find any expert advise with recommendations. I am curious if anyone else is doing it this way and what timing they use.
I used to use a baby bottle sterilizer and I think the Instant Pot is better as you can set it for longer cycles.
