Obviously cooking up bacteria infested cottons is not a good idea, but is there a way to safely make use of old cottons? So far I have these ideas:
1. Cook the cottons up with rubbing alcohol, hopefully killing all bacteria. Then let the alcohol evaporate and cook it up like a normal shot.
2. If for whatever reason #1 doesn't work I was thinking cook the cottons in some water and then soak it up the nose or drink it.
Any thoughts, suggestions, experience?
