Our Products Blue Ribbon Dental Cleaner

Dental Ultrasonic Cleaning Solution & Concentrate

Leading Supplier Of Cleaning Products For Over 50 Years

Cleaning is an essential first step in achieving effective infection control. Since contaminants are the primary nutrient source for bacteria, if not eliminated during the cleaning process they will remain after the sterilization process, allowing bacteria to grow. Although sterilization destroys bacteria and viruses, no amount of sterilization can prevent bacteria from growing if residual contamination remains. Blue Ribbon's ultrasonic cleaning concentration is the solution to meet the critical cleaning requirements for effective infection control of dental instruments.

01 Chosen by the Leading Dental Research Institution

This renowned institution's purpose is: "To identify the outstanding products, techniques, and equipment for delivery of oral care through laboratory and clinical research."

02 Called A Noteworthy Product

Blue Gold's dental ultrasonic cleaning solution was chosen for publication as a Noteworthy Product in their well-known newsletter, based on exceptional results from field tests performed by 24 dental offices, controlled clinical tests, and basic science tests.

03 Received A Favorable Evaluation

Blue Ribbon was the ONLY ultrasonic cleaning solution to receive a favorable evaluation, in their 18-year history! *See the January 1994 Newsletter (Volume 18 - Issue 1) or contact Modern Chemical, Inc. for more information.

A Superior Value

Blue Ribbon costs much less to use!

Because Blue Ribbon is more concentrated than most ultrasonic cleaning solutions (1:20 instead of the more common 1:10) it costs much less to use. The outstanding value of our dental instrument cleaner becomes obvious when the cost per use gallon is compared.

A Superior Solution!

  • Premium quality, highly concentrated blue liquid, which has a slight peppermint scent and is pleasant to use.
  • Surfactant cleaning action penetrates, lifts off, and disperses contaminants, which reduce the opportunity for contaminants to be redeposited on instrument surfaces. Because these substances are not dissolved into the solution, the solution retains its cleaning potency and is not weakened as the contamination in the tank increases.
  • Non-corrosive and is safe and effective on all metals, plastics, glass, and other hard surfaces. Blue Ribbon's non-corrosive nature makes it ideal for presoaking and for cleaning sensitive instruments, such as burs and hand pieces.
  • Versatile: removes temporary cements, films and other stubborn contamination and is effective for general office cleaning.
  • Free rinsing, leaving no residue and reduced spotting on mirrors and glass.
  • Contains an effective rust-inhibitor which protects dental instruments for up to two weeks.
  • Has an extended shelf life in both concentrated and diluted forms and is not affected by variances in temperature.
