Hi. My daughter usually uses M9 and it works great for her. But she ran out of it and the new order won't be here for a few days (bad mommy for ordering late!). I remember there have been threads about other things people have used (that are easily bought). One was some kind of breath mint. Anyone know what I am talking about and what it is? I figure I can buy some so she feels more comfortable emptying her pouch during the day.
Thanks.

hydrogen peroxide or mouth wash. i havent tried mouth wash, but h2o2 works well enough for me. just a capful should do it.

someone was saying to put tic tacs in there, i tried it but didnt' see that it worked, mouth wash works ok. I use that breath spray in the air before i use a public toilet, keeps the smell away.

Hmmmmm.... I thought for sure Shaz would chime in by now on this one. She swears by the hydrogen peroxide. I used M9 drops for years. about 12 years to be exact. I like using generic Lysterine-type mouthwash. To me it works just as well as M9 drops and costs a small fortune less. I usedd to use about 3 bottles of M9 a month. Imagine what I spent over a 12 year span, and what I'm saving using mouthwash now. Do yourself a favor. Cancel the M9 order if you can. If it's too late, compare using mouthwash(or peroxide)and M9 drops in a side by side comparison. You'll be amazed at the money you'll save!!!

Sorry about that last post--I'm very tired!!! "I'm a peroxide user now, too!" Is what I was intending to write. I need to go to bed!

Thanks. I think she will try either the peroxide or the mouthwash for the next few days. All the ostomy supplies are covered by our insurance so I will keep the order and just let her continue with the M9. I seem to wait until the last minute to order supplies for her but luckily they ship pretty quickly. She has a few wafers left to make it through the week (including any unforseen leaks).
