Consult with Ben. I think he had a horrendous experience once.

Not sure if Injectors are gold-plated, but when I soaked one in Barbicide for a few hours it developed a dark discoloration.

I only put nickel or chrome plated razors in Barbicide and haven't had any problems.

So no, don't risk it.

To sterilize a used razor you just bought?

Clean it with soap and hot water. Let it dry completely. Remember when you go out to eat you shove a fork in your mouth that someone else used that was cleaned that way. BTW, I noticed you say it is replayed, did you mean replated? Are you the first person to use it since replating? I wouldn't even worry about it in that case.

Spot on! I love the analogy to eating out. many people obsess about cleaning a razor or brush, without realizing that.

Yes I need to sanitize a tech

I did mean replated but I'm not sure if it's ever been used. Good analogy with the fork.

Soap and warm/hot water is all you really need. If you want, you can dip it in rubbing alcohol for a minute or so and you should be all set. Good luck.

To echo the soap & water sentiments, the truly nasty germs can't live on dry metal for longer than a few hours. Some bacteria can go for a little longer, but it's really only fungal spores that need an autoclave to kill.

That's what I've learned from the CDC website anyway, you should probably verify.
