Every year, on the first weekend in October, is a time for connection, inspiration, and reflection for the ostomy community. Whether virtually or in person, we hope you join in for Ostomy Awareness Day on October 7, 2023.
If you can eat it, it should be safe in your pouch. I make my own spray from lemongrass oil or cinnamon oil mixed with alcohol. I use it as a spray when needed but only use it in the pouch if I take it off and spray it away from my stoma. It probably would not hurt me, but I would not swallow alcohol, so I would not let it touch my stoma. I have used mouthwash in my pouch too. Nothing works 100%, but everything helps a little.

I have used hydrogen peroxide and it works about 5 cc and slosh it around and empty. You can add fresh after if it is VERY stinky. Also know whatever is safe to put in your mouth is safe to put in your bag. No guarantee that the seal will hold with mouthwash due to alcohol.
