    I plan on usingnew needles each use but wondered if there are basic and easy steps tosanitizing a syringe well enough for it to be able to be used multiple times.

    Yo what up wabbit... heroin helper has some instructions for bleaching syringes for continued use found here:


    Of course one thing to be careful of with IVing coke is that it does
    numb the surrounding nerves so a slightly dull needle can do a lot of
    damage... so that same website has a tutorial on sharpening needles


    but once again like the guy mentions in the article, there are all
    sorts of new risks associated with filing down the syringe (such as
    getting metal filings in your blood-stream)... so like you said: just
    use a new needle every (or almost every) time.

    Ya just stick to using new ones all the time. I know its a hard to rule follow when punching blow. Swim will sometimes reuse a dart in the same evening when he knows the clean ones wont last. Swim will rinse the dart 2 or 3 times with bottled water. If reused only once in the same evening, sanatation shouldnt be a problem. The needle does become dull, even after one use, and duller with each use after that. Anyways, try to use a clean one each time.
