HOW DO I CLEAN MY MANIKIN TO BE UP TO STANDARDS WITH COVID-19?
Prestan Products always recommends cleaning your CPR manikins thoroughly after each class. Along with cleaning the outside torso and face, you want to make sure you are opening the manikin and wiping the chest foam and skin to sanitize the inside as well. You can use a mixture of soap and water to clean the manikin effectively. If the area is extremely dirty, you can also use common household cleaners such as Formula 409, Windex, or Vim. Clorox or Lysol wipes can also be gently applied to clean them if needed.
