Directions: To clean tattoo equipment and instruments prior to sterilization, make a fresh 1% detergent solution (2 1/2 Tbsp. per gal., 1 1/4 oz. per gal. or 10 grams per liter) in cold or warm water. Use Alconox for the standard tattoo equipment cleaning, or use Tergazyme (Alconox plus enzyme) for enzymatic cleaning where health ordinances may require enzymatic cleaning. Use warm water below 130 F (55 C). Clean instruments by soak or ultrasonic method. Tergazyme solution will last 8 hours. Not for spray machines, will foam. RINSE THOROUGHLY – preferably with running water. The instruments are now ready for your sterilization process. Used on a wide range of glass, ceramic, plastic, and metal surfaces.
