DISINFECTION AND STERILIZATION OF COSMETIC TOOLS
Metal tools must be decontaminated before use.
Processing steps for manicure/pedicure tools:
After the service, all instruments are considered contaminated and must be sterilized again. This procedure is also necessary before starting work with new tools.
After use, the tools should be cleaned of organic residues as well as varnish or acrylic residues and placed in an ultrasonic cleaner with a washing-disinfecting solution.
When choosing disinfectants, one should remember about the broadest spectrum of activity against enveloped and non-enveloped viruses, fungi and yeasts, bakeries, and tuberculosis bacilli.
The best results are obtained with the use of ultrasonic cleaners.
When disinfecting, strictly follow the preparation instructions for the selected solution! Failure to follow the rules of solution preparation, exposure time, temperature and concentration may cause corrosion and loss of cutting properties of the tools. Tools that are already rusty or showing signs of corrosion should be rusted off or thrown away. Rust-free and non-rusted tools must not be disinfected in one bath.
After the disinfection procedure is performed, it is necessary to rinse the instruments with water to remove any residual disinfectant solution. After rinsing, the instruments must be dried, for example with a dust-free towel, and then the moving parts should be lubricated with medical paraffin. Metal tools are suitable for high-temperature sterilization in a Type B autoclave.
Instruments should be sterilized in a sterile barrier (paper-foil bags or sleeves) to maintain sterility after sterilization and to keep them safe. Tools should be sterilized only in working autoclaves with a valid inspection and only with the use of demineralized or distilled water of the purity specified by the autoclave manufacturer. The use of poor-quality water may cause corrosion and damage to the tool.
We do not recommend the use of ball sterilizers. This can cause mechanical damage and the lack of sterility of the tools. Improper cleaning or disinfection of instruments after use, or the omission of one of the steps, significantly reduces the effectiveness of sterilization and can cause corrosion and rust.
When machining tools, it is important to :
- Use personal protective equipment (headgear, mask, long rubber gloves, waterproof apron);
- Do not use brass/copper brushes or metal cleaning sponges etc.
- Do not use alcohol-based preparations
- The temperature of the disinfecting solution should not exceed 40C
- Do not use chlorinated water to prepare a disinfectant solution or to rinse instruments
The Semilac brand is not responsible for damage to the tools as a result of non-compliance with the rules of disinfection and sterilization. The corrosion resistance of steel, the tools retain only when all the rules and instructions are followed, as well as with the use of high-quality and certified agents for cleaning and disinfecting. The instructions and procedures attached to the disinfectants and sterilizing devices must be strictly followed.
