1.Disassemble (if there is a needle guide)


2.Remove the probe cover

3.Clean probe immediately by using a soft brush with nonabrasive detergent
Use a damp gauze pad or other soft cloth and a small amount of mild nonabrasive liquid soap (household dishwashing liquid is ideal) to thoroughly cleanse the transducer.

Use running water to remove any residual gel or debris from the probe.

Rinse the transducer thoroughly with running water, and then dry the transducer with a soft cloth or paper towel
