High-quality swabs are available from many sources. These are the type used by nurses to clean an area right before giving an injection, or to clean a wound, clear out pus or for any similar procedure. The swabs come prepackaged in small, foil pouches, ensuring the alcohol doesn’t evaporate and the alcohol swab is ready for use when it is needed.An alcohol swab can easily be made at home. The commercial gauze-based swabs exist for convenience and portability. Keeping a package of gauze squares and a bottle of alcohol on hand will work just as well, though this setup can be a bit messy when dealing with a squirming child or other reluctant patient.
