Melissa,

Good question. Just checked with my school nurse. Yes, tools that students
have cut themselves with need to be washed . She suggests Clorox. Either
straight and then washed off, or with a 1-10 solution with water (this
mixture is only good for 24 hours.) The hepatitis viris can live for 15 days.
Yikes.
