Thank you for this video Jossie.I have ONCE had to conduct repairs on my tweezers, through my own mistake. I had sterilized them when they had run dry. One of the pairs had a rubberized coating which melted and burnt contaminating both pairs. Since they cost $35 a pair here, I had not wanted to dispose of them and buy new.

One thing I found surprising about your video is you dont wash your tweezers first before sterilizing them?

Another thing worth mentioning. All the tweezers I use are medical grade stainless steel. When using sandpaper to remove residue and other contaminants, it's important to watch what kind of sandpaper is used. Some sandpaper use ferous oxide which can rub off some of the iron oxide onto the stainless steel. Over time this can cause stainless steel to develop rust spots. If I have to use sandpaper I make sure it is non-ferrous.

Thanks for the hue, Seana, I'll remember.

By the way, the tweezers had been washed prior to introduction into the metal box, awaiting the moment when they could be repaired. This step can not be seen in the video, but that does not mean it does not occur.
