You are correct, I left that out by accident. Rinse it off completely with cold water before reinserting it. As all you guys know, cold water causes shrinkage. You will find that most has already washed off from moving around on the wet paper towel even if it reinserts on its own.

The pocket that it reinserts in is not sterile and loaded with bacteria. That's where all fecal matter exits. But why take the risk of introducing something if you don't have to.

I know a few breeders that swear by this method and have yet to have an issue. Collectively speaking they have over a 100 years experience between the 5 I'm thinking of. But it only takes once, right!!!
