How to tell if Piercing Tools are sterilized?
On behalf of TVLesson.com, this is Noel Garcia from New Age Piercing.
This is how to know the tools that have been used on you are clean. And we spoke earlier about how it gets thrown way but it's one thing that we actually reuse is actually tools which is closing pliers and opening pliers. Needle kit is thrown away and hemostats, we’re going to reuse it. We don’t really use many tools. We usually use this right here. It's actually to hold jewelry to be safer. It's like a long finger to make the work easier.
But always look, this is a package. This is two packages right here. They’re both inside sterile bags. The difference is this package here has been already sterilized. This package here has not. Usually some of the sterile bag that you are going to look is always going to be already a brown stain or a black mark that has been already sterilized. This one is not.
So if you want to, when the piercer brings these tool, make sure that you always if you say, “Can I check the bags?” or “Can you show me the sterile?” And that’s how you can tell the difference here of being clean and not. This is clean, this is not. Of course this is brand new. You can tell it hasn’t had dirt. This stuff has been in the autoclave with steam, water, and pressure. That’s why it's all wrinkling and that’s the way the way it looks. And that’s why there’s mark there that it shows that has been already sterilized. This has not been sterilized whatsoever. It's still pink. The mark usually goes away once it's sterile. And the area right here, it actually, you know, it goes black like as you see right here.
So, this is how you know and this El Nido, the same way. And this is the difference between both being cleaned or not.
