GERMICIDAL ACIDIC HARD SURFACE CLEANING COMPOSITIONS
February 18, 2003
A method by which medical equipment, such as surgical scalpels, can be sanitized using a detergent or treating composition containing a surfactant and a solvent such as water is disclosed. The method involves taking the used medical equipment and contacting it with the treating composition, and subjecting both the equipment and composition to microwaves. The composition foams during microwaving and/or immerses the equipment such that microwave arcing is avoided, and such that the medical equipment is sanitized.
