If you are only using it on you, it doesn't matter. Just clean it. It would be like wearing a condom to masturbate...you are not going to get herpes from you. The second you try to poke someone else with it...the game changes.Would an ultrasonic bath be sufficient to sterilise equipment if i was only using it on myself ie steel tubes grips etc.?
boiling water will not kill bugsi only use the ultrasonic to clean my stuff makes it easier to get all the ink off, then they get put in a pressure cooker.
Ive heard of people putting there stuff in a pan of boiling water for an hour, dont know if this is effective or not though.
Good advice in this thread by saying NO, you can not do this. Let me tell you why you can not do this, even if you are only using them on yourself.Would an ultrasonic bath be sufficient to sterilize equipment if i was only using it on myself ie steel tubes grips etc.?
you may want to look up the ALL AMERICAN AUTOCLAVE because they do not have a so called drying time. It is a pressure cooker through and through. I use one and unless your going to let all the water boil out of it and then allow the unit to cook dry it is still considered an autoclave.Pressure cookers do not have this, so technically they do not work as autoclaves.
Autoclaves need to be spore tested once a month at a cost to the user of around $100. Depending on local laws they need testing once a week.
add that to your sterile distilled water, and electric bill. And then run the numbers for the disposable tubes.
