A couple of tips on how to keep your iontophoresis device free from rust and other nasty marks of wear and tear. 😉 Ran into this on another site and it seemed like a good idea to share it even if I'm not an iontophoresis expert myself.
– When you're done with the treatment, toss the water from the tubs and gently dry the tubs and the rest of the equipment (cables and electrodes) with a soft cloth.
– Buy a common disinfectant and clean the set with it occasionally.
– You can use a soft cloth and alcohol to remove patina from the electrodes.
– You can also submerge aluminum electrodes in vinegar cleaner and leave them for a few hours to remove calcium carbonate
– Use a stainless steel cleaner for stainless steel electrodes.
And then again, sometimes nothing will help and you will have to buy spare parts. Still, it's best (and cheapest) to take good care of your iontophoresis device from the start. 😉
