Does anyone have any experience with this stuff?  It has very positive reviews on Amazon, and it's half the price of M9.  But it sounds, um, questionable.  Just curious.  BTW, I LOVE M9.

I’d like to know if anyone has tried this, also. And I love the M9 drops, a real life changer. The stoma nurse had not told me about them, just given me samples of Adapt lubricant deodorant, which does not do it at all for me. So, for about two months I tried baking soda, tic-tacs, Tums, nonalcohol mouthwash - and really was getting discouraged until I bought a bottle of M9 to try.

I just ordered an 8-ounce bottle, so will give you guys my input soon - see how it stands up to the other blue stuff on the market.  Nice price on this stuff.

Yes, I have used it (safe'n'simple) for over a year and really love it. I do always mix it with Coloplast/Brava® Lubricating Deodorant (paid for by my insurance).

Okay, I'm on about 5 bag empties with the Safe 'n Simple.  I'm extremely impressed.  It works just as well as M9.  I actually think it is better.  I normally have some residual smell with M9, and with the Safe 'n Simple, there is absolutely none for me.  I put 12-15 drops in the bag with every change.  At this rate, an 8-ounce bottle should last about 2 months.  At $12 a bottle, I'm sold.  And, don't get me wrong, I still like M9, but am really pleasantly surprised by this stuff.  I'll give you another update in a few days.

Okay - Another update.  After going all night with some spicy, very garlic-rich Italian dinner, this morning's bag empty was still impressive.  It did not eliminate all of the odor, but close, and just as good as the other blue stuff.  

On a side note.  I never would have thought in a million years that I'd be discussing whether my poop stinks or not in a public forum, so I'd like to thank you all for this opportunity.  Living the good life, for sure.  😆

Well, you've got me convinced. Next time I order my deodorant drops, I'll get some from my supplier. Thank you for the chuckles as well.😄
