Big Fun Foto Booth Has the Cleanest Props
Let me tell you two things you should know about BFF Booth, our props and Jacksonville photo booth rental.
First, my wife is a clean freak. She has her own side business cleaning homes and you can find that on Facebook. The point here is that nothing comes in or out of this house without being cleaned in both directions. With a photo booth rental hat. it gets more attention and double the sanitation. Here’s a good link for those who don’t know why. If you’ve ever had an infestation of head lice, you don’t need much more encouragement to keep your photo booth rental hat clean.
Second, we’ve been shopping for photo booth rental hat since we started. There is no reason to try these things on in the store for us, but other people do. You never know who’s been wearing that hat before you. It is up to us at Big Fun Foto booth, a Jacksonville photo booth rental company, to make those people and their possible head lice and germs disappear.
The Case for Cleaning Every Photo Booth Rental Hat
Just yesterday at Party City as I was shopping for some new props, I heard one of the employees say, “Here’s comes Pops.” Now Pops was an older gentleman who was beloved by these employees because he must stop by frequently. He wasn’t homeless, he was just old and smelly. And he was trying on hats. You’re welcome.
So here is our routine for a photo booth rental hat cleaning:
Step One: Right after an event, we spray the insides of any cloth hat that was worn, or not.
Step Two: We keep them sealed in a plastic tub container with anti-insect properties included to keep them away.
Step Three: We spray them again before the event.
We also don’t put out a lot of hats and/or wigs. For durability purposes, we like cloth hats as people tend to not care for our props as much as we do. So with cloth comes issues: Here’s what this article said about how cloth versus plastic comes off:
Head lice are spread most commonly by direct head-to-head (hair-to-hair) contact. However, much less frequently they are spread by sharing clothing or belongings onto which lice have crawled or nits attached to shed hairs may have fallen. The risk of getting infested by a louse that has fallen onto a carpet or furniture is very small. Head lice survive less than 1–2 days if they fall off a person and cannot feed; nits cannot hatch and usually die within a week if they are not kept at the same temperature as that found close to the scalp.
The following are steps that can be taken to help prevent and control the spread of head lice:
- Avoid head-to-head (hair-to-hair) contact during play and other activities at home, school, and elsewhere (sports activities, playground, slumber parties, camp).
- Do not share clothing such as hats, scarves, coats, sports uniforms, hair ribbons, or barrettes.
- Do not share combs, brushes, or towels. Disinfest combs and brushes used by an infested person by soaking them in hot water (at least 130°F) for 5–10 minutes.
- Do not lie on beds, couches, pillows, carpets, or stuffed animals that have recently been in contact with an infested person.
- Machine wash and dry clothing, bed linens, and other items that an infested person wore or used during the 2 days before treatment using the hot water (130°F) laundry cycle and the high heat drying cycle. Clothing and items that are not washable can be dry-cleaned OR sealed in a plastic bag and stored for 2 weeks.
- Vacuum the floor and furniture, particularly where the infested person sat or lay. However, spending much time and money on housecleaning activities is not necessary to avoid reinfestation by lice or nits that may have fallen off the head or crawled onto furniture or clothing.
- Do not use fumigant sprays or fogs; they are not necessary to control head lice and can be toxic if inhaled or absorbed through the skin.
To help control a head lice outbreak in a community, school, or camp, children can be taught to avoid activities that may spread head lice.
Here’s the link to this article from the CDC.
Finally, because we are a Jacksonville photo booth rental company who cares about the cleanliness of your photo booth rental hat, we go the extra mile to keep you and us safe. I have two kids with very thick, dense hair and we’ve had to deal with head lice six years ago. It’s no fun, they’re gross and I wouldn’t want anyone to have to deal with it, especially if it comes from us.
