Powerplay – Wrap Cleaning Procedure

The following is the recommended procedure for cleaning of the PowerPlay® site wraps. 3% hydrogen peroxide was found to be an inexpensive, safe, effective means of spot-disinfecting fabrics in a hospital environment as referenced with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • Mild or Enzyme Detergent
  • 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Spray Bottle

TO CLEAN

  1. Remove the gel pack from the site wrap.
  2.  Inspect both the Gel Pack and Site Wrap, and discard if there is any severe soiling or staining present.
  3. Place a piece of plastic wrap or a Ziploc bag over the site wrap tubing connector (opening) and tightly seal with a rubber band or tie to ensure that no liquid gets into tubing while wrap is being washed. Liquid inside wrap tubing could damage the PowerPlay pump while in use
  4. Hand wash the site wrap and gel pack using a mixture of mild laundry detergent or enzyme detergent and
    water. You may use a soft brush if needed.
  5. Rinse the site wrap and gel pack thoroughly with clean water.
  6. Wring out and towel dry both site wrap and gel pack, then hang dry

TO DISINFECT

  • After site wrap and gel pack are completely dry, spray both the gel pack and site wrap with 3% Hydrogen
    Peroxide (or a fabric disinfectant) on one side ensuring all areas have been covered and allow at least 5
    minutes to dry (the amount of time required to dry depends on the amount sprayed on the fabric)
  • Turn the gel pack and site wrap over and repeat process in Step 7. Let dry completely.
