Is there any kind of deoderant on the market that I can use to combat the horrific odor that occurs when I empty and clean my colostomy bag and stoma. I have been using incense in the bathroom but it just doesn't seem to help. Any suggestions ?
I found an alternate solution at www.totalhomecaresupplies.com
It's called Hollister M9 drops. Instead of spray the air to deodorize, you insert these drops directly into your ostomy bag to neutralize odor at the source. I've included the link where you can see this product: http://tiny.cc/pf1wi
