Re: What can I use to clean pump parts at work?

I do the parts in the fridge trick. I do work out of my car 2/3 days, and I just wrap the parts in paper towel and put in the a cooler bag with lots of ice packs. when i work in the office 1 day, I put them in the cooler bag in the fridge. I don't rinse, just wrap in paper towels. After my last pumping session of the day (usually only 2) I rinse with water and then wash them at home.

however, like someone else said i do have a few of the steam bags in my pump bag just in case i need to sanitize them. with DS1 i kept a tiny tupperware container of liquid dish soap just in case I really needed to wash.

Note that while it's $5 for a 5 pack, each bag can be used up to 20 times, so it's not quite as bad as it sounds.
