Eliminate potentially harmful bacteria living in your patients' nostrils with the 3M Skin and Nasal Antiseptic. Designed for preoperative use, application only takes minutes, lasts for hours, and reduces infections caused by MRSA and other Staph bacteria. Start one hour before surgery. Clean the nostrils with a tissue. Dip a swab into the 3M solution and stir for 10 seconds. Insert the swab into a nostril and rotate for 15 seconds, covering all surfaces. Do the same for the inside tip of the nostril. Using a new swab, repeat for the other nostril, then repeat in both nostrils using fresh swabs. The solution is drip-resistant and non-irritating.
