Keep Your Clients Safe! How to Disinfect Your Nail Files Effectively

Salon and spa cleanliness is a hot ticket item these days. It seems like everywhere you go, people are buzzing about implements and tools being used in spas and salons.

As a spa or salon owner, I am sure the safety of your clients weighs heavy on your mind. Client health has to be top priority, but you also have a business to run, and your prices need to remain at market value. Using only disposable tools and implements can get costly, driving your prices up or cutting into your profit margins. What is the best way to handle these concerns?

Below, I have included some recommended instructions below to clean and disinfect cushioned files, , and blocks. As always, make sure you are following your state regulations!
buffers

  1. Abrasive files, buffers, and blocks should be thoroughly cleaned after each use. Having ample quantities of these items on hand is essential to ensure your clients' safety.
  2. Add a few drops of antibacterial liquid soap/detergent to a clean and disinfected brush.
  3. Under running water, gently scrub with brush all surfaces to remove all visible debris and residue while thoroughly rinsing.
  4. After cleaning, disinfect by immersing in (or saturating with) 70-90% isopropyl alcohol for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove items, rinse thoroughly in running water.
  6. Allow items to air dry completely (usually 24 hrs) by placing them on top of a clean towel and covering them with another clean towel.
Please note: different disinfectants are recommended for different types of surfaces. Hospital-grade disinfectants are generally recommended for use on hard, non-porous surfaces. 70-99% alcohol is an excellent disinfectant for softer, porous surfaces, such as nail files and buffers.
