Dear friends:
 
I have been reading a lot of the posts in the Ostomy section of HealingWell. Really appreciate learning from others about their experiences and their options.
 
I would like to let everyone know about colostomy bag liners. I heard about them from a member of the Ostomyland forum. They will cut down your expenses by 90%. Instead of using the colostomy bag by itself, you put a liner inside the bag and then replace the liner as needed. In addition, the liners are FLUSHABLE. You just flush them down the toilet. I have ordered some samples and should get them today.
 
There are two manufacturers of liners I know of. The first is called Colomajic:
 
 
Their American reseller that handles all of their orders in the USA is:
 
 
The cost for 300 liners is under $60. This will allow you to use one bag a day, replace the liners as you need, flush the liners (imagine how much more sanitary this is both at home and when in public) and save a lot of money. The ring sizes of the liners are 1 3/4 and 2 1/4 inches. However, I am told by forum member at Ostyland that these two stanzard sizes will work with any colostomy bag.
 
The other place is called Bear Bags and is carried by a company called Flexware. They custom make the liners. I sent them one of my colostomy bags
 
 
Best wishes to everyone.
 
Benjamin

I've found it easier and quicker to empty and rinse.  Please let us know how you like using the liners.  :-)
