Hello all, where can I purchase an inexpensive autoclave for home use? My main reason for wanting one is I am starting to look at sounding kits and have read that a big risk is infection due to non-sterile items being introduced into the urethra. Definitely want to avoid an infection spreading to my bladder and such. If I find sounding enjoyable then I plan to purchase a princes wand for my prince albert, which will also need to be sterilized often.

Another reason is I have a few friends starting to stretch their lobes and I have the extra jewelry laying around but want to do more than just boil them before giving it to them to use. 

So are there any piercers, tattooists, or business owners out there that can recommend a very basic autoclave that will meet these needs. Thanks everyone!

theres a few websites that have them there kinda spendy though ive looked into it before check ebay they got various ones at diferent prices just be careful about buying cheap ones its the kind of thing that you should spend the extra money to get a good one instead of just finding the cheapest thing out there

If you have got lots to spend then ebay really isn't a bad option.

Otherwise learn about the different specs and shop around online at medical suppliers, there are tons around.

Bear in mind you'll also need an ultrasonic cleaner. These are much cheaper, but will add to cost.

 

As for jewellery, it depends on whether it is a suitable material for claving. Plastics and organics are a no-no, and some silicone or metals won't clave properly either.

 

A much cheaper option is to find a friendly studio which will do this for you. Most will for a small fee.
