[IP] Re: More Silhouette Questions
Hi Matthew, My Name is C J Jutras, I have been using Silhouettes for
the past 8 months And I Have been pumping 11 months !! What I do if I want
extra holding power is to also add 1 or 2 IV 3000's after putting in the
set!! These are the steps I follow!!!
1. use IV Prep first
2. insert the Silhouette
3. I now apply a product called mastisol useing a cotton swab , about a 3
inch square area, even add a little to the outer edge of the silhoutte !! "
This is very sticky stuff"
4.cut a rectangle hole in a IV 3000 "About 1 inch long x 3 Quarters high!!
Fold it in half first so you can just cut out the knoch!! Now apply this
over the set!! " Run the IV 3000 side ways!!" This really holds the set in
5. If you want even more protection add one more IV 3000 running verticly!!
over the other one!! I do this for water sports and swimming!!!
6. To Remove the IV 3000'S and the Silhouette there is a product called
Detachol sold By the same company that sells the Mastisol!! Both of these
Products can be bought from Mini-med!!!
Matthew you can try the IV 3000'S without the Mastisol, But I dont think
they hold as well!!
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THIS HELPS!! AND IF I EXPLAINED IT WELL ENOUGH TO
YOU!! Take care And good Luck!! C J Jutras Lewiston, Maine Ps. I hold a
chat at 9PM here at the IP Chat room on Thursday nights!! Chats are a good
