And after that stick in a hot glass bead bed sterilizer to sterilize, if the subject line is correct.

 A toothbrush or test tube brush works well to clean out the grooves of
the forceps.   Have a bucket with soapy water handy and change it as
frequently as possible.  4 out of 5 dentists recommend not re-using the toothbrush on your teeth, however.

We are having a problem with carry-over at the grossing station.  We do not have a sink available and are presently dipping our forceps in ethanol.
there another solution we can use besides ethanol?  Does anyone have any other ideas as how to avoid this contamination issue we are experiencing?
Thank you
