Cleaning & Disinfection

Cleaning & Disinfection for Silicone & Plastic Cups

-Disinfect cups thoroughly with anti-bacterial soap and warm water after each use.

  • Oils drying on the silicone cup will cause the cup to harden; so prompt washing after treatment is recommended.
  • No bacteria, fungus, or virus can proliferate on silicone, but basic hygiene is required for top client care.

-Seasonal changes in temperature or air-conditioning, as too hot or too cold will affect the pliability of silicone cups. Silicone cups may harden in cold temperatures and softer in warmer temperatures. 

  • To combat this, either place silicone cups in hot water to make them softer or put them in the fridge for a few minutes to make them harder.

DO NOT

  • Do not use any mineral oil or mineral oil containing products with the silicone cups because mineral oil will degrade the silicone.
  • Do not place silicone cups in autoclave or hot cabbies because the heat will degrade the silicone.
