We have always packaged and sterilized cotton products such as 2x2s, cotton rolls and cotton tipped applicators in our steam autoclaves. Recently there was a question asking if this was acceptable. Is this something that has been asked before? I couldn't find anything on it.
Ask OSAP recommends that you contact the manufacturer of the product in question in order to determine if this is an approved procedure/use for this product, and if any relevant specific manufacturer instructions exist. Additionally, there are FDA approved products such as sterile gauze available on the market which are manufactured according to approved specifications.
