How to Mix Barbicide for Salon Use

Barbicide is iconic for its blue color, which has become a universal symbol of disinfection, present in the beauty industry since its debut in the late 1940s. Barbicide is a disinfectant used in barber and beauty shops to control the spread of germs. This article is to guide you on the proper use of Barbicide Concentrate to make sure you and your salon or spa is practicing proper infection control.

Before using any piece of equipment, you need to clean it. Remove any physical debris using a towel, Ship Shape, or soap and water. Once the piece of equipment is clean, disinfect it using Barbicide or another chemical disinfection solution.

MIX IT:
The proper mixing ratio for Barbicide is one of the most vital things you can do. The proper dilution is 2 oz. (or 1/4 cup) of Barbicide Concentrate mixed into 32 oz. of water (4 cups). This is the proper dilution, so you can kill all the pathogens listed on the EPA registered label (For a full list see the product label). This should be used in states that do not require a Tuberculocidal.

All non-porous surfaces in your salon should be disinfected. Single use items (like nail files or neck strips) should be thrown away after each use. Once you have mixed your solution there are several ways you can disinfect. BlueCo Brands has a handy saying for using Barbicide: “If you can, immerse it. If you can’t, spray it.”

IMMERSION:
For items like combs, shears, brushes and nail clippers immerse them in Barbicide for ten minutes. Those ten minutes (contact time) will ensure all the pathogens on the label are eradicated. Once the contact time is complete, remove the implements and rinse them with water. Store the tools in an air-tight container until you are ready to use them again.

Once the solution comes in contact with implements you need to change it 24 hours later, or sooner if contaminated.

SPRAY IT:
Counters and chairs are a little hard to dip in Barbicide, but still need to be disinfected. Spray counters, chairs, mirrors and sinks down. Once again, those need to be visibly wet for ten minutes, then wipe it with a clean cloth. The ten minute contact time is vital for proper infection control.

With these basic steps for using Barbicide you will be prepared to keep your salon clean and disinfected. Make sure you know how to use Barbicide, a staple in the Beauty Industry since 1947.
