Then, if you're OCD about infection (as I am), you'll wash a small area, about the size of U.S. Quarter, with antiseptic-soaked Q-tips. This biological cleaning is right at your is your at your wire-insert target. PVI, the "orange stuff" widely used in USA emergency rooms and Doctor's offices, is pretty good for this. It's cheap and over-the-counter at any drugstore. But it's more likely to cause allergic reactions than CHG. CHG is more widely used in EU facilities for exactly this reason -- but in the USA, you'll need Scrip to get it. You need to keep this small area wet for at least 30 seconds, so plan on using more than one Q-tip. If you do this, note the exact location of the Center of your sterile "Target", because the Skin-Prep solution is going to wash away the color.
