That is why cleanliness of hands during application is extremely important.

If for any reason the URITAM tampon is to be reused, it should be cleaned in such a way as to exclude the danger of viruses, bacteria, mould or fungi. The PVA foam of which URITAM tampon is made keeps its physical properties only up to the temperature of 70 degrees C.
