Even though your tool is made of stainless steel and will last you a lifetime, it still needs to be cared for to retain its luxurious luster. We’ll explain how you should clean, disinfect, and store your Enerlocks locking tool and gemstone bracelet and extender.

Cleaning

Cleaning is key

Your Enerlocks locking tool and gemstone bracelet and extender are at the center of your loc establishment and maintenance appointments. It’s the tool that will help you care for your client’s locs. But, the tool needs care, too.

Follow our cleaning recommendations:

TOOL

STEP ONE: Use a microfiber (or non-abrasive) cloth to wash your Enerlocks locking tool (Be sure to rub the cloth in the same direction as the grain of the tool). Wash using a mild, neutral detergent or using soap and warm water. Rinse with cold water.

STEP TWO:  Wipe the tool dry using a fresh microfiber cloth.

STEP THREE: Once your tool has been dried, use a new microfiber cloth to disinfect it. (Suggestion: use 70% isopropyl alcohol.)

STEP FOUR: Use a fresh microfiber cloth to wipe away any excess alcohol.

Avoid using abrasive materials (e.g. steel wool, brushes) and corrosive liquids (e.g. bleach, chlorine), to clean your tool. These materials will affect the tool’s finish and luster over time.
