I'm now regularly using liquid deodorant drops in my pouch. What a difference for bathroom smell! Has anyone discovered an inexpensive one? I sometimes run out of the one I get with my supplies, so looking for suggestions.

I use baby oil all the time and find it works well for lubricant and odor, and it is relatively inexpensive. Plus, I buy the 3 oz travel size baby oil for when I travel and go out for dinner, etc. These go through TSA no problem in a backpack or carry-on too. Stay well. Penguins7

Security T Ostomy deodorant.

Part # 108000 made by Genairex.

Vitality Medical is now selling for $5.52 for an 8oz bottle, which will usually last me a month. It works and is a lot cheaper than M9, and it works!

Nothing cheaper or more effective than baking soda.

You just put some in your pouch? How much do you use?

Hi, my stoma nurse gave me a recommendation a few weeks ago and it is amazing. It makes a massive difference, and the best part is it's cheap.

Peppermint extract (the type you use in baking) a couple of drops in the bottom of the bag and

Peppermint Altoids or Tic Tacs will do the trick

Good to know all these off-the-shelf alternative odor killers in case you run out of ostomy deodorant.

Hello everyone!

The best thing I have found for deodorant in my pouch is a peppermint dietary gel cap. I just drop one in my pouch first thing in the morning, especially if I'm going out. My output is minty fresh for most of the day.

It must be the gel caps! There's peppermint oil inside and when the gel melts the oil is released in the pouch.
