8 rules of eyelash tool storage and care
It is important to never forget about disinfection and sterilization after each client. Always follow the cleaning process and steps.
The eyelash tools should always be in good working order.
We advise to prevent the surfaces of rubbing loose and abrasive substances.
The lash tools should not be placed in rooms with high humidity.
It is important that the eyelash tweezers close perfectly. This should be checked regularly. Otherwise, the working time suffers.
To protect the closing and sharp edges parts of the lash tool, special covers should be used.
Protect the tool from drops and impacts. This can lead to deformation of the tips.
Store the eyelash tools in a safe, closed place. A proper and regular care of the lash tools ensure their long service life and comfortable use. For a perfect storage of eyelash extension glues we recommend our adhesive storage box.
Recommendations for disinfection and sterilization of eyelash instruments
Always follow these steps of eyelash tool sterilization:
- Pre-Sterilization Cleaning
This process should be done after each use. The procedure is also necessary before starting work with new eyelash instruments.
After a client, the instrument must be cleaned of residues and completely immersed in a disinfectant solution.
Conny Lashes tip: Avoid washing tools under running water to avoid the spread of infectious agents by splashes. After the disinfection procedure, it is necessary to rinse the instrument with water to remove residual disinfectant solution and dry the instrument completely.
Sterilization of eyelash tools
The sterilization works as followed:
- Physical (steam, air)
Appropriate sterilization equipment is used for each method. The chemical method is used to sterilize thermally unstable items by completely immersing them in a solution.
Conny Lashes tip: During sterilization using high temperatures, disinfectant residues or just water can lead to rust formation. During sterilization the maximum allowable temperature must not be exceeded, or the sterilization time must not be increased. Such actions lead to a decrease in the corrosion resistance of the steel from which the eyelash tool is made.
