40% of clippers at township barbers contaminated with blood: study

by 17/04/2018 08:12:00 0 comments 1 Views

Khumalo and her team collected the clippers immediately after they had been used for a haircut — mainly a clean shave, or “chiskop”. In Bonteheuwel, the most popular style was a brush cut.

A study in 2007 found that a third of men bleed during clean-shave haircuts, but 42% of the clippers in the latest study had blood on them.

Khumalo said all the barbers cleaned their clippers after each client, but not in an approved way. More than 80% used methylated spirits, which had no antiviral properties, and 8% used an open flame, for which there was no data on efficacy.

“Modern ultraviolet-light sterilisation units as well as specific antiviral sprays are used internationally in hair salons,” said Khumalo.

“The new generation of accelerated hydrogen peroxide-based environmental surface disinfectants are bactericidal, virucidal, mictobactericidal and fungicidal. The formulation is safe to use and has a high compatibility profile for various materials in addition to being a fast-acting intermediate-level disinfectant.”
