Sterifilts Filtering for injecting
The sterifilt is a purpose made single-use filter for illicit drugs. The polypropelene membrane filters particles, but retains virtually no drug. The sterifilt has a polypropylene membrane that filters much more effectively than makeshift filters (such as cigarette filters) and is much less likely to be shared because it:
- retains far less drug than a makeshift filter
- loses its strength when wet, so will break if multiple use is attempted
- works with both crushed tablets, and powdered drugs.
Harm Reduction Victoria sells Sterifilts for a cost of 30 cents each.
