Can't beat free!

They work the same as the Trio Pearls, but I honestly prefer the sachet style (more like a paper) of the Pearls vs the Perform sachets (which is more like plastic). Let me know how they work for you!

I would like to try samples of Eakin Perform Ostomy Gelling Sachets. I have an output that is liquid.

It's called sodium polyacrylate and used in diapers and under cuts of meat in the supermarket. You can buy a pound of it on Amazon for $14 US. Put 1/2 teaspoon your appliance after emptying. Same thing.

You're right, Roddy, and I've got that stuff listed on a DIY supplies article I've been working.

But there are some pretty significant deal-breakers to be aware of when using bulk sodium polyacrylate.

Because it comes loose, it's not nearly as easy to dispense or travel with. In this regard, gelling sachets are infinitely more convenient and practical to use outside of the home.

The loose stuff is also not covered under insurance, so most people would be better off getting gelling sachets marketed for use with ostomy bags, simply because it would be free for them.

i used something similar, but without any pouch to contain it- it was crystals that absorb moisture- worked great BUT, one day i notice holes sliced in the pouch, and turns out the crystals were hard enough and sharp enough to slice the plastic- so just be aware that might happen- cut a satchel open and see if you can feel any sharp edges-

Wow, Bob!

Do you recall the name of that product? I've never had any concerns about any of the gelling products cutting through an ostomy bag. For the most part, the active ingredient is the same as what's used in diapers, so they'd have to be fairly gentle on materials.

sorry- didnt see your reply- The name was "Smell Eze" (might be all one word)- the crystals are super absorbant, but they did slice the pouch- maybe one way to avoid it woudl be to wet the product right before spooning it into the piouch, to soften the crystals up
