The best results you can obtain with those products is by thoroughly washing the area with plenty or water, and then applying the enzymatic cleaner. So if it’s a pillow, take it into the shower, let the water run through it for 10 minutes, squeeze it several times in the process, then let it dry naturally, then apply enzymatic products by literally pouring the entire jug onto the pillow. Let it dry naturally again. Repeat the process if necessary.
For endoscopic instrumentation, a good starting point is eliminating today'sbroad range of anionic detergents from consideration. In lieu of anionicdetergents, the use of a neutral pH enzymatic cleaning solution will be moreeffective in the removal of bioburden without damaging most instruments. Tounderstand why, a brief understanding of liquid chemistry can be helpful.
Enzymatic cleaners are popular because of their ability to break down soils, stains, and other debris with the use of natural enzymes. Typically, the enzymes used to create an enzymatic cleaner include species of the bacteria Bacillus. Out of this bacteria, proteases and amylases are used the most, though lipases have also been known to be incorporated into detergent formulations. Each of these enzymes function differently. Proteases combat protein-based stains, amylases work on and starches, and lipolases break down lipids or fats.
