I know I sound like a dumb-dumb but do you put the hydrogen peroxide in the bag for the odor? If so how much?  Some one told me about the marshmallow trick and I thought you put a marshmallow in the stoma!  I'm getting surgery on the Jan 23 skull .  Any little tricks of the trade would be much appreciated confused . This stoma thing will be new to me.....(by the way has anyone else know of the marshmallow trick? I looked it up on the internet and got over 5000 hits.)  thanks artist

I usually put about 10 drops in after I empty before closing the bag. Make sure it's 3% solution - the kind used to wash out scratches and such. It's available on supermarket shelves.

The Mashmallow trick is to eat a handful of marshmallows half an hour before change time. It should stop output long enough for you to have time to change your bag :)
