The Importance of Hygiene in Professional Eyelash Extensions

Maintaining a high level of hygiene is paramount in the lash extension industry. Unclean lash tools can harbor bacteria, leading to infections and allergic reactions in clients. By prioritizing hygiene, you demonstrate professionalism and a commitment to client well-being. Clean tools not only ensure client safety but also contribute to the longevity of your lash extension business and your reputation as a trusted professional.


Expert Techniques for Cleaning and Sterilizing Lash Extension Tweezers and Tools

  • Creating a Clean Working Environment: Start by preparing your workspace. Clear the area and wipe down all surfaces with a sanitizing solution to remove any potential contaminants. A clean and organized environment sets the stage for efficient and effective cleaning. All lash beds, or massage tables should be wiped down with a disinfectant. All sheets, blankets, towels and pillow cases should be washed properly in between clients. 
  • Choosing the Right Cleaning Products: Selecting the appropriate cleaning products is crucial for achieving optimal results. Look for a disinfectant specifically formulated salons and spas, ensuring it is safe for both you and your clients. Consider using a high-quality disinfectant and wipe cleaner spray that eliminates germs and provides thorough sanitation.
  • Immersion and Sterilization Process: To effectively clean and sterilize your lash extension tweezers and tools, follow these steps:
      1. Place your lash tools in a specialized container or tray designed for sterilization purposes.
      2. Fill the container with a recommended sterilization solution, ensuring the tools are fully submerged.
      3. Allow the lash tools & tweezers to soak for a minimum of 20 minutes to ensure proper disinfection. (Or follow manufacturer's instructions)
      4. Use this soaking time to work on clients or prepare for the next appointment by utilizing multiple sets of tools.

PREempt CS20 Sterilization soak is a very popular choice for sterilizing lash extension tweezers and tools. Be sure the products you are using meet your local state or provincial guidelines for health and safety. 

  • Cleaning Glue Stickers and Jade Stones: Don't forget to clean other lash extension tools.
