Buy Indigo® 5000-10000 ppm high level chlorine test strips for your hair salon or barbershop to ensure high level disinfection, only $27.95 /100 strips; buy more & save with our 3 year extended shelf life.
5000 ppm chlorine bleach levels are needed to ensure high level, critical disinfection of scissors, electric clippers, tweezers, crochet hooks (cap highlighting), straight razor handles (shaving). This high level will kill everything except bacterial spores. If there is visible blood contamination, you may need to use 10000ppm & confirm with these strips.
Use our free sodium hypochlorite bleach dilution calculator to take out the guesswork.
Having trouble trying to calculate how to prepare a 1000, 2500, 5000, 10,000 (or other) ppm chlorine solution for surface disinfection? Use our chlorine bleach dilution calculator to take out the guesswork or watch the video:
Chlorine bleach at high concentrations is an effective germicide for dangerous pathogens including viruses such as Coronavirus, bacteria such as MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus) staph infections & Clostridium difficile, found ever more frequently in hospitals and other health care facilities.
The removal of free chlorine by organic contamination (blood/feces) can seriously reduce the sanitizing effects of chlorine disinfectant solutions. To ensure the 1000ppm minimum strength for adequate disinfection, higher initial concentrations up to 10,000ppm (1%) chlorine levels are recommended to counteract this.
These strips are very simple to use. Simply dip a strip into the bleach solution so that the indicator pad is fully immersed. Then withdraw and compare to the color chart on the vial.
