It is something I needed to learn about being an amputee. When my stump healed I was given my first prosthesis. Along with it came a rubber liner. There were no instructions about how to keep the liner clean so I did my best with soap and water but it did not reduce the number of bacteria and fungus present. Even when the prosthetist saw a fungal infection growing on my stump that he said to put some anti-fungal cream on it not mentioning the liner may be the source of the infection. I would still be using soap and water if I had not seen an article on the Liner Wand.
