Method:
> Fill a glass with the above cleaning solution. Soak the AIRFLOW® MAX Handpiece until the plastic/metal interface.
> Put the glass in the ultrasonic bath1, filled with water.
> Set the temperature, if possible, at 50°C (122°F) and activate the ultrasonic power at your usual setting for approx. 15 min.
> Rinse the handpiece with tap water.
> Place again the handpiece in a new glass half-filled with distilled water.
