How do I clean the face shield?

Our cleaning procedure is based on CDC guidelines. There is a Whitepaper on our site with more details.

There are two steps to cleaning and disinfection. Both work together to provide the best results:

  1. Cleaning
    1. Don gloves
    2. Inspect the shield and discard if damage is found.
    3. Wash all surfaces in a warm soapy water solution.
    4. Wipe dry with a clean soft cloth or air dry. Air dry will reduce the chance of scratching the visor.
  2. Disinfection
    1. Don gloves
    2. Wipe the shield from inside out using a 70% IPA solution.
    3. Allow IPA to contact the shield materials for the recommended time specified by the IPA manufacturer. Contact time is very important and different brands claim different contact times.
    4. Air dry.

Yes. However, reusing the face shield requires a cleaning procedure approved by the healthcare institution that are validated per regulatory requirements. The face shield materials are resistant to 10% Bleach, 70% IPA, VIREX and similar cleaning agents.

Studies show that each COVID-19 patient can require healthcare workers to use 50 disposable face shields. We believe this is an unnecessary environmental waste problem and exasperates the shortage of PPE. Reuse the face shield after cleaning with a healthcare institution’s approved cleaning protocol.
