IQoro is Class 1 Medical Device, CE marked for multiple use by a single patient. It is manufactured of medical grade polycarbonate and the risk of allergy is minimal. It will not tolerate cleaning with alcohol-based fluids.
Every day cleaning
You can clean IQoro in a few different ways. The easiest and most gentle way to do it is:
- Rinse IQoro under running water and use a drop of mild dish soap
- IQoro does not tolerate cleaning with alcohol-based fluids.
If you have had an infection in your throat or mouth, or if your IQoro has been stored in an unhygenic place, you might want to clean it a bit more thoroughly before using it again.
In that case, IQoro can be washed in the dishwasher up to 95 degrees.
You can also clean IQoro in a saucepan with boiling water. Remember that if IQoro is often exposed to high temperatures, the plastic gets prematurely aged and might break more easily.
Cleaning in healthcare
IQoro can be cleaned in an autoclave, but if this is done regularly it will affect the aging of the device.
If you clean the IQoro in an autoclave, it’ll be exposed to temperatures of 140 degrees or higher.
This alternative is neither recommended, nor neccessary to clean IQoro. Other implements used in the mouth, for example knives, forks or drinking beakers are not routinely autoclaved – a dishwasher is more than sufficient.
IQoro devices will tolerate cleaning temperatures up to 140°C, but if they have been prematurely aged by being exposed to regular autoclaving might not be replaced under the terms of the product’s warranty.
