§ 980.3. Procedures for Cleaning and Disinfecting Non-Whirlpool Foot Basins or Tubs.
(a) As used in this section, “non-whirlpool foot basins” or “tubs” are defined as any basin, tub, footbath, sink, bowl, and all non-electrical equipment that holds water for a client's feet during a pedicure service.
(b) After use upon each client, each non whirlpool foot basin or tub shall be cleaned and disinfected in the following sequential manner:
(1) All water shall be drained from the foot basin or tub.
(2) The inside surfaces of the foot basin or tub shall be scrubbed and cleaned of all visible debris with a clean brush, liquid soap (labeled as such on soap product) and water.
(3) The foot basin or tub shall be rinsed with clean water.
(4) Refill the foot basin or tub with clean water and the correct amount (read the label for mixing instructions) of the EPA-registered hospital-liquid disinfectant which the label claims is a bactericide, fungicide, and virucide. Leave the disinfecting solution in the foot basin or tub for at least 10 minutes.
(5) Drain, rinse and wipe the basin dry with a new, clean paper towel.
(6) Record this procedure in the pedicure equipment-cleaning log. The log shall contain the date and time of each cleaning, initials of the person who completed the procedure, and shall indicate that the cleaning was done after a client.
(c) The pedicure equipment-cleaning log shall be made available upon request by either a client or a board representative.
(d) A violation of this section may result in an administrative fine and/or disciplinary action. Each non-whirlpool foot basin or tub not in compliance with this section may result in a separate violation.
(e) All disinfected basins or tubs shall be stored in a clean, covered place labeled “Clean” or “Disinfected”.
