DISINFECTANT SAFETY
Disinfectants are powerfUl, professional-strength tools that can be hazardous if used incorrectly. Disinfectants can be poisonous if ingested and can cause serious skin
and eye damage, especially in a concentrated form. A good rule to remember is use caution! In addition:
you should:always wear gloves and safety glasses when mixing chemicals with water
always add disinfectant to water, not water to disinfectant
use tongs, gloves, or a draining basket to remove implements from disinfectants.
always keep disinfectants away from children.
never pour quats, phenols, formalin, alcohol (not legal in most states), or any other disinfectant over your hands. This hazardous practice can cause skin irritation and
increase the chance of infection. Wash your hands with soap and warm water and dry them thoroughly.
carefully weigh and measure all products to ensure that they perform at their peak efficiency
Disinfectants come in different forms such as ready-to-use sprays (for surface cleaning), liquid concentrate, and powders. Some disinfectants appear clear while others
are a little cloudy.
always follow manufacturer's recommendations for mixing and using, and check the efficacy to make sure you are using the right disinfectant.
avoid overexposure. Disinfectants are chemicals, and overuse is detrimental to the environment.
Jars or containers used to disinfect implements are often incorrectly called wet sanitizers. Of course, the purpose of these containers is not to sanitize but to disinfect. The
disinfecting soak solution must be changed daily and kept free from debris unless otherwise directed by the manufacturer's instructions. Strict adherence to the
principles of good hygiene and disinfection must be maintained.

DISINFECTING LINENS AND CAPES
All linens should be used once and then laundered with bleach according to label directions. Capes or drapes that come into contact with
a client's skin should be laundered in the same manner.
DISINFECTING ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
The contact points of equipment that cannot be immersed in liquid, such as hair clippers, electrotherapy tools, and nail drills, should be
wiped or sprayed with an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant created especially for electrical equipment
. Electrical equipment
must be kept in good repair.
DISINFECTING WORK SURFACES
Before and after each client, an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant should be used on the work surface (manicure table,
workstation, esthetic bed, and the like). The disinfectant should be left on the surface the full amount of time prescribed by the
manufacturer's directions. Remember to disinfect all surfaces. This includes doorknobs, handles, and so on
The shampoo bowl should be cleaned and the drain cleared of all hair after each client. The neck of the bowl should be disinfected the
same as other work surfaces.
DISINFECTING WHIRLPOOL PEDICURE FOOT SPAS
When using whirlpool pedicure foot spas, you must follow proper disinfection procedures to ensure proper maintenance of the equipment
and to prevent the spread of bacterial or parasitic disease. Take time to carefully read the manufacturer's cleaning instructions and ask
your manufacturer and/or distributor for a demonstration as well. Improperly disinfected equipment can harbor bacteria that may spread
disease or infection to clients, cosmetologists, or nail technicians who come into contact with it.
