    We use the same graduated cylinders with a glove over the syringe...yeah...I'm not convinced it's the best, but it's probably the cheapest.

    We use this, too. Cap over syringe, also. We don't have a time to throw out the cylinders.

    we use capped syringes in pink basins. It's funny that everyone uses something different! Would love warmers for my unit, but I have no funds for it-

    Penguin warmers and love them!

    Also will use 1L graduate container with lukewarm water and place capped syringe in, or some RNs will place capped syringe in a glove or ziploc baggie and place the waterbath. Graduates are changed weekly.
