bleach your works!



While preparing your drugs for injection, the safest choice is to use a brand new syringe each and every time. If you don’t have access to a clean needle, bleaching can lower your risk for HIV.

How to Bleach Your Works:

(1) Fill the syringe with water. Tap out all the blood droplets. Shake the syringe and shoot out the contents. Repeat this process until the water runs clear. There should not be any blood in the syringe.

(2) Fill the syringe with bleach. Let the bleach stay in the syringe for a minimum of three minutes. The longer you keep the bleach in the syringe, the better! Shoot out the bleach. Repeat this process at least three times.

(3) Rinse the syringe with clean, fresh water. Shoot out the water. Repeat three times for best results.

Remember, bleach does not kill Hepatitis and should only be used as a last resort. The best and safest method is to use a new syringe for every hit.

Really getting a needle clean enough to use again is such a bother that we recommend getting clean needles from Needle Exchange. If for some reason you don’t want to go to needle exchange, ask your dealer if they have any clean points.
