Application Note: Cleaning of Cosmetic Creams and Lotions from Laboratory Glassware
14 January 2014

Cosmetic creams and lotions are typically thick non-water soluble emulsions that adhere to the surface of glassware. While pre-rinsing with hot water helps clean prior to hand washing; removal of the thin film, which remains still poses a problem. This application note highlights use of the Miele PG 8536 Laboratory Glassware Washer as an effective method for thorough cleaning of cosmetic creams and lotions from laboratory glassware.
