What is the proper procedure for disinfecting nail files?

Proper Disinfection of Cushioned Abrasive Files, Buffers and Blocks:
These guidelines outline procedures for cleaning (sanitizing) and disinfecting cushioned abrasive files, buffers and blocks. In the salon, these implements must be properly cleaned and disinfected before it comes into direct contact with a client, as required by the licensing rules and regulations of your region, state or country. Be sure to check with your local, state, and federal regulations regarding proper sanitation laws if these products will be used in a salon.

After each use abrasive files, buffers and blocks used in a salon must be thoroughly cleaned (also called sanitizing) and then disinfected by following these simple steps:

  1. Add a few drops of antibacterial liquid soap/detergent to a clean and disinfected brush.
  2. Under running water, gently scrub with brush all surfaces to remove all visible debris and residue while thoroughly rinsing.
  3. After cleaning, disinfect by immersing in (or saturating with) 70-90% isopropyl* or ethyl alcohol for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove items, rinse thoroughly in running water.
  5. 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.
* Some disinfectants are designed for use on hard-surfaces while others are best used on porous or absorbent items. EPA-registered Hospital disinfectants are good examples of a type that is suitable for hard surfaces such as metal, glass, fiberglass or plastic. Isopropyl alcohol and ethyl alcohol (70 – 90%) are suitable for porous/absorbent items such as scrub brushes for nails, cushioned abrasive files, buffers and blocks.

Refer to: “Guidelines for Cleaning and Disinfecting Manicuring and Enhancement Equipment” for exact wording. It is a free hand-out from the Professional Beauty Association and the Nail Manufacturers Council.
