  • Officer information

  • Cleaning is vital prior to disinfecting utensils, as any build-up of organic material (hair,grease etc.) will prevent the disinfectant from working effectively. All reusable equipment should be cleaned after it has been used. Instruments that are able to be immersed in water should be cleaned in the following manner: 1) WASHING in clean water with soap or a suitable detergent at the temperature recommended by the manufacturer. 2) RINSING in clean water. 3) DRYING with a clean cloth. The procedure used for disinfecting depends on the type of disinfectant and instrument. It is therefore important that the manufacturer's instructions are followed in relation to the dilution of the disinfectant and the contact or immersion time required. Disinfectants should not be used past their use-by date. Chemicals that are appropriate for disinfecting utensils include: • Alcohol, ethyl 70% • Alcohol, isopropyl 70% • Hospital Grade Disinfectant • Sodium Hypochlorite 1%

  • All disinfecting immersion containers should be changed daily and scrubbed out to remove any build-up of organic matter that will reduce the effectiveness of the disinfectant. Electric Clippers and other electrical items should not be immersed in water. Cleaning and disinfection should instead occur by wiping them with a alcohol impregnated cotton pad to remove all "dirt", then spraying or wiping them with an appropriate alcohol based disinfectant. Glutaraldehyde is not a recommended disinfectant, due to its hazardous and corrosive nature. All items such as combs, brushes, scissors, clippers, manicuring and pedicuring instruments and make-up equipment should be cleaned and disinfected between clients, and operators should have enough cleaned and disinfected equipment to allow for the busier times. New single-use disposable razor blades should be used for each person, and used blades should be placed in a sharps container. If a reusable cut-throat razor is used, the blade should be disposed of in a sharps container immediately after use. The blade handle should then be cleaned and sterilised before reuse. A new single use razor blade can then be attached to the handle. If the client's skin is accidentally cut, the cutting instrument should be immediately disposed of, or cleaned and sterilised before being re-used. Ultraviolet cabinets do not disinfect or sterilise items as the radiation does not penetrate to all surfaces of the articles exposed. They should only be used for storage of clean and disinfected items. Items should be processed in accordance with the ultraviolet cabinet manufacturer’s instructions and AS/NZS 4815:2006.

  • Cleaning Prior to Sterilisation Reusable skin penetrating equipment should be cleaned in the following manner: 1) RINSE the equipment in cold water to remove any blood or serum. (Hot water at this stage will cause coagulation and adherence of matter to the instrument and prevent complete sterilisation). 2) WASH the equipment using hot water and soap or detergent. (Using hot water with detergent at this stage will help remove any grease and oils). 3) RINSE the equipment thoroughly in hot water (greater than 70oC) and allow to dry. 4) STERILISE the equipment using an autoclave or other approved steriliser in accordance with the times and temperatures indicated on Autoclave. For the operator's safety when cleaning items, disposable (and durable) gloves and protective clothing should be worn. Splashing and handling needles other than with forceps should be avoided. Needles should be visually inspected for damage prior to cleaning. Use of a clean nylon brush or pad in the cleaning stage will help to remove material.
