DECONTAMINATION - HOW TO CLEAN YOUR TWEEZERS

Updated: Feb 18

Proper Decontamination is Mandatory at ALL TIMES


We are going to cover step-by-step decontamination of your lash tweezers, other tools, as well as your workspace. Our courses put a large emphasis on our HEALTH AND SAFETY MODULES. We have further participated in the education of Basic Infection Control with Pre-Empt themselves and are very proud of the knowledge we can provide you guys!


Step-by-Step Decontamination of Lash Tweezers


1. Remove adhesive from tweezers using professional adhesive remover (i.e. LSC UNICORN MAGIC TWEEZER CLEANER).


2. Wash tweezers with warm soapy water to remove body oils and dirt.


3. Completely submerge tweezers in a medium to high disinfectant solution for

the manufacturer's recommended amount of time.


4. Remove the tweezers from the solution, wearing gloves, and rinse

thoroughly with running water.


5. Properly store disinfected tweezers in a clean, covered container, or cover

tweezers with a clean towel until ready to be used.


Repeat these steps between EVERY client.


Step-by-Step Decontamination of Other Tools


For tools that do not come in contact with a client.


1. Wash tools, such as lash mat, glue ring, jade stone, etc. with soap and water to

remove dirt and oils.


2. Wipe objects with an alcohol swab or similar (low level disinfectant accepted

for these elements).


3. Store disinfected tools in a clean, covered container, or cover tools with a

clean, single-use towel until ready to be used.


Repeat these steps between EVERY client.
