  • Clean/Disinfect handcuffs

    With this Swine Flu scare, what is a good way to clean and disinfect handcuffs? Would setting them in boiling water be effective?

    Thanks

      I uses the same Sani-Wipes that we use for our hands.


      There's even some industrial strength Sani-Wipes that are made for equipment, not hands, that work well.


      I wouldn't suggest boiling them or getting them completely wet.

          Strong oxidizer when it reacts with metal, and you got some serious corrosion.

            Clorox wipes.

            Rub them down with handcleaner?

            Invest in an autoclave?

              I'm pretty sure this is something I innovated but if someone has done this before me please let me know.

              Go to a beauty supply store and purchase a can of spray "Cool Lube"

              It is a very strong disinfectant that is used for hair clippers. The kicker is that is also an awesome lubricator. So no need to clean and then lubricate it all is done in one step. Just spray them down and, wipe of the excess with a paper towel so you don't put them in your cuff pouch wet.

                Just got done my Blood Borne and Infectious Diseases Recert... Anything that is at LEAST 70% alcohol is good. Anything that will kill TB will kill just about anything else.

                Boiling water is good, just be sure to thoroughly dry and lube the hinges afterwards.

                    We spray them with Lysol and wipe them down. Our jailers do the same thing.

                      Influenza is an airborne virus. So long as you don't stick your handcuffs up your nose, you don't have anything to worry about

                          just throwing this out there. Not sure if its good or bad. But what about carb cleaner? It would certainly kill off anything thats on there. This would be a do it at home thing. As not many would be carrying a can in the trunk.

                              I use PDI sani-cloth HB wipes it will kill just about any virus bacteria or fungus. They use them in hospitals to clean things such as gurneys and equipment.
