MRSA in Nose/Nasal Steroid

I have battled MRSA in the nose for a long time and once again am on an antibiotic and a nasal ointment.  I use Nasonex.  How do I clean the nozzle so that I can be sure there is no bacteria on it after I use it? I'm thinking to use one bottle on the left and another for the right.  But I want to clean it right.  Most people just wipe it.  Is that enough?  Thanks for any help.

Hello~I think I would clean it with an alcohol swab each time and let it thoroughly dry. Having two is a wise idea, but again, make sure the nozzle is cleaned.
