Keeping your lash room clean is so important. Clients want to avoid getting their lashes done by someone whose lash room looks dirty. If you are cleaning your room correctly, it could also prevent your clients from getting an infection. It can be overwhelming to know when to clean everything. Follow the steps below to make sure everything gets cleaned and taken care of.
- Wipe down tweezers and place in barbicide.
- Throw away all non-reusable items after use.
- Wipe down all surfaces with a disinfecting wipe.
- Use an adhesive wipe to clean your adhesive nozzle (Don’t ever use water to clean your adhesive bottle)
- For reusable items you need to first clean with soap and water, sanitize using an alcohol based product, disinfect with barbicide or a germicide, and sterilize to kill all living organisms (use for just your tweezers and jade stone)
- Apply water or a bonder on glue dots before you throw them away.
- Put all lash trays away.
- Take trash out.
- Sweep or vacuum your lash studio.
- Mop the floors.
- Wash lash bed sheets, blankets, and lash pillows (try using a dental bib over your lash pillow for each client)
- Restock all your lash trays.
- Restock products.
- Wipe down all shelves, drawers, and doors.
- Deep clean your lash room.
- Take inventory.
Taking the time to organize your space is so essential in the new year. It will help you get an idea of inventory, and you can set up a system that works for you. Some of our favorite organizers are Rolling Organizers for having all your products close to you. Jars are a cute way to store non-reusable items while keeping them clean. Acrylic drawers are perfect for holding lashes, backup supplies, and under eye pads. An adhesive stash will keep your glue lasting longer. Finally, tweezer storage is a cute way to show off your tweezers and keep them safe.
Keep lashes together and have a system so you don’t run out of lashes mid-appointment. That is such a nightmare when that happens! Label your glue with the date it was opened, then you can plan for when you will need to switch it out. The big key with organizing is to ensure you put things back where you had them. Then your lash room will look fabulous at all times!
Cleaning and organizing your lash studio will help your space feel put together and professional. Take the time to get a system down that works for you. Have a specific day each week that you deep clean on top of the 10 to 15 minutes you clean up everyday. Let’s have 2023 be the best year yet!
