How do I know when to change the disinfectant solution in my jar?

Q.

How do I know when to change the disinfectant solution in my jar? At school they said to change it when it has stuff floating in it, but that can’t be sanitary. Does it become ineffective when it has been used for a while?

A.

Doug Schoon: Yes, as debris builds up in the disinfection solution, it will become less effective. In fact, bacteria can grow inside you disinfectant if it’s not changed often enough. It is a good rule of thumb to change disinfection solution as soon as it becomes cloudy. Clients don’t like to see implements pulled from a jar of cloudy or dirty liquid. Also, make sure to thoroughly clean implements and files before you put them into the disinfectant. They cannot be properly disinfected unless they are completely free of dusts and other debris beforehand.
