      Here is a picture of the portable chemical disinfection station that I use during an all-day foot clinic in the field. I use this arrangement for the bits & burs that I want to re-use for multiple clients. I bring enough curettes and clippers for an entire day and take them home for autoclaving, but this set-up can easily handle those larger sizes as well if you need to do a chemical sterilization on the spot. This is a simple set-up and serves the purpose for a 4 step chemical sterilization.
      1) Pre-Clean. Wash off debris in soapy water w/brush (I use Hibiclens CHG 4%. Any soap will do)
      2) Rinse. Place burs in dipping basket and rinse in clear water
      3) Dry off excess water to avoid diluting the solution. (I pat dry items & dipping basket w/paper towel)
      4) Place pre-cleaned burs into disinfectant liquid in the dipping basket (per directions on label). Rinse & use

      The plastic container is a Sistema 3-section locking lunch container, with a platform area that I use for drying (4-steps). I got mine on Amazon, then found a similar product at Dollar Store. Do not transport liquid in this container, it is NOT leak-proof. I transport my liquid disinfectant in a small leak-proof Mason jar and bring only enough to cover instruments. I carry liquid soap in a small spill proof vial. I discard all the liquids on site at the end of clinic.
