Lemon Glycerine (Citric Acid) alcohol swab stick is specifically designed for post-operative procedures and oral swabbing, making it an ideal choice for soothing and protecting irritated areas in the mouth and throat. With its lemon glycerin formulation, which includes citric acid, it offers temporary relief from minor discomfort and promotes a soothing effect. This alcohol swab stick provides a gentle and refreshing solution for oral care needs.

10% Povidone-Iodine

10% Povidone-Iodine alcohol swab stick is an excellent choice for cleaning minor scrapes, cuts, and burns, as it effectively kills bacteria, fungi, and viruses. It not only cleanses the skin by removing dead skin, dirt, or oil but also helps in preparing the area for further treatment by controlling infection.

Citric acid, found in lemon glycerine solutions, offers a natural alternative with potential mild antiseptic properties.

How should Alcohol Swab Sticks be stored and handled?
