Keeping your Hot Stones for Massage Clean and Sanitary Bewtween Uses

It is important to make sure you are keeping your hot stones for massage clean and washing them between each client. Here are some tips on keeping your tools sanitary for use between your hot stone massage clients:

  • Antibacterial dish detergent or soap is recommended, as well as Tea Tree Oil.
  • The stones should then be rinsed in hot water, air-dried on a towel and sprayed with a disinfectant like alcohol.
  • Using a scrub brush with antibacterial soap or tea tree oil to scrub the stones can be helpful as well.
  • The water in the massage-stone heater should be changed after each use as well, and the water reservoir should be washed with antibacterial soap and water, rinsed and sprayed with disinfectant.
  • The mat or towel that is at the bottom of the water reservoir in the heater must be replaced with a clean one.
  • Using a light oil with stone massage is recommended, as cream, lotion, gel or heavy oil like jojoba are too heavy for stone massage and tend to stick to the stones and heater surface making it more difficult to clean properly.
  • Having a second set of stones and a second heater is also recommended for back to back treatments and would be helpful in saving time between clients.

Catch Clients, Not Their Germs!

Almost every one I know is sick, or is working/living with someone who is sick. There are some nasty bugs out there getting hold of people and refusing to let go. Most people, a few days after antibiotics and rest start to feel better and slowly get back to their routines. Many also think a great way to really push the feel better effect is to get their nails done, hair done, a massage etc. My theory---you can never be too safe when it comes to the spread of germs.

Businesses can't shut down due to sickness and you can't do anything about sick clients coming in. Maintaining a clean environment is always a top priority, during the "sick" months it is vital!

Stocking up on your regular disinfectant to spray your implements and work stations is a good way to ensure germs don't have a chance! Also, keeping bottles of hand sanitizer on work stations, bathrooms, waiting areas...anywhere a client can see it will also help (think safety in numbers!!!) People may not think about carrying it or even using it, however if it is in their line of sight they are more likely to take advantage of it.

Don't let germs this season take over your business! Prevention is key!

Barbicide- Are You Sanitizing??

We all know the importance of sanitizing, but the real question is whether or not you are doing everything you can to provide a clean and sanitary environment for your clients.  Barbicide, which is a germicidal, fungicidal, virucidal, and pseudomonacidal disinfectant, kills numerous pathogenic organisms.  It disinfects scissors, combs, brushes and salon surfaces.  It is safe for acrylic tanning beds/stainless steel/plastics.  And best of all?? Metals can be immersed for hours without rusting!

By using Barbicide you will display your understanding and commitment to using tools which have been disinfected minimizing all risk of cross infection from one client to the next.  Your clients will trust you more than ever and will never think twice about paying for your services!!

Take a look at our disinfectant products at Pure Spa Direct:
