How to Clean Your Eyelash Tweezers
As lash artists, we use our products every day! Day in and day out our products never fail us. They are always taking care of us, so in return we need to take care of them. Keeping them in tip top shape and ready for our day will help us be prepared for our clients. Let's talk about how to properly clean your eyelash tweezers!
It is proper to disinfect your tweezers after each client. You do not want to cross contaminate by using the remove link: tweezers on one client, then using them on another client. Your tweezers should be clean after each client. This is why it is a good idea to have extras on hand!
You will need Barbicide and an implement tray to properly clean your eyelash extension tweezers. To prep your tweezers for disinfecting, you will need acetone and a cotton swab.
Step 1: If you get adhesive on your tweezer tips (don't worry—we all do) you will want to get that off first! How do you get glue off lash tweezers? With a cotton swab, pour a dime size amount of acetone on it and wipe at the tips. Wipe those tweezer tips until the adhesive comes off.
*Keep in mind if you have colored tweezers, or any kind of tweezers with a finish, you will want to be careful not to wipe that color off.
Step 2: To disinfect tweezers, mix Barbicide and water in the implement tray. Barbicide is the classic lash tweezer sterilizer. (Mix ratios according to manufacturer’s instructions.)
Step 2: Place tweezers in the tray and let soak. We recommend to soak for ten minutes. (Always check manufacturer’s instructions, though.)
*Note that if you soak these for too long, the color on your tweezers if any may be compromised.
Step 3: Wash with warm water, then dry! We recommend storing your tweezers in a clean implement tray and keeping them separate from dirty ones.
Now that you know how to clean eyelash tweezers, you’re ready for your next client. It is an extra step in your day to clean those tweezers, but it is so important! Stay clean out here, lash artists!
