How do I store my catheters?

A lot of catheter users will keep supplies in a couple of places throughout the house, such as bathroom cabinets or hallway closets, to ensure they have easy access to them when needed – and a back-up stock in case you start running low. Depending on your circumstances and life-style, it may help to keep a few catheters in your car for when you’re travelling or at a family member’s house, just in case you run out at home. However, avoid leaving your catheters in very hot or very cold temperatures.
