Hello Houstonstomaguy. It's good to be curious 'cos that's how you find things out.
I don't need bags because I irrigate which gets rid of all the output in one go (in the evenings).
I use a stoma 'plug' which has the same sort of wafer as a bag but has a small, round, foam plug about 4cms long that pushes into the stoma and expands to prevent any residual output such as mucus.
I don't use them for that purpose because I still get lots of mucus from the outside part of the stoma. However, I do find them useful for keeping the stoma hole open. Otherwise my peristomal hernia tends to close right over the hole and block everything including wind, which could be very painful. The stoma plug is porous so it lets the air out in a controlled way. Incidentally, the wind also comes out silently and there is the usual built in filter so there is no smell.
I hope this gives you some idea of waht we mean by 'plugs'.
The reason I was interested in your technique for stopping the 'stickiness' had nothing to do with bags or plugs. It just sounded as if it would work for the latex gloves I use on a regular basis. They get so sticky on the inside that I have a job to get them on after I've used them once.
