If you assume all the preps you use are sterile, you probably assume wrong. Preps may come in sterile containers or applicators, but the antiseptic itself typically is not. Aplicare, from Clorox Healthcare, is supplied sterile; the package contents are sterilized to a 10-6 assurance level after the product is placed in the packaging. Aplicare complies with the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) recommendation that "All skin preparation products should be manufactured to be sterile." Free samples are available.
