A clean tool or bit must only be used on one client before being deemed dirty. Sanitation, disinfection and sterilization are all SEPARATE processes. Each must be completed separately to be effective.

- Wash you tools and bits with soapy water. Use a wire brush or ultra sonic cleaner to remove all visiable debris.

- Fully submerge tools and bits in an EPA hospital grade disinfectant. Allow to soak for manufacturers recommended time. Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly.

- Metals tools and bits can be sterilized using an autoclave. (This is an additional step to ensure 100% of pathogens are killed. It is not required in NZ). 

- Make sure tools and bits are completely dry and store in a ventilated clean container.

- Bits may require an “quick dip” in acetone to help breakdown lodged product before sanitation.
- Do not let your tools and bits sit in disinfectant solution for longer than recommended by manufacturers. Doing so will dull your bits and shorten their lifespan.


We highly recommend the use of Lucas-Cide Disinfectant. Not only does it kill 99.999% of  bacteria, viruses, and fungus in 180 seconds, it is also the most cost effective at only $0.88 per litre. PLUS once mixed the diluted solution has a shelf life of 30 days.
