RE: To disinfect or not?

Clean your waterbaths and the container used to top them off. If you don’t those little critters will mass produce.

Hi all.

     On going issue.Could use your input.Water baths.Up until recently we have always cleaned and decontaminated our water baths,[a quick wash with Alconox or antibacterial soap] at the end of the day.To make sure those little afb bugs or friends are gone..and not making new friends.

A coworker has stopped doing this.States it isn't necessary.Is there new info out there saying this is so?.....We share microtomes and water baths..depending on the daily schedule....

Thanks for your input....!
