How to clean your TADD® Containment System

In the field...

NOTE: video has no sound


There are 3 different cleaning protocols we recommend in order from least to most intensive:

Cleaning Protocol #1 (Least Intensive)

  1. Spray or wipe with deionized water

  2. Dry with disposable lint-free wipe


Cleaning Protocol #2 (Intermediate)

  1. Spray or wipe with 70% isopropanol

  2. Spray or wipe with deionized water

  3. Dry with disposable lint-free wipe


Cleaning Protocol #3 (Most Intensive)

  1. Spray or wipe with a 1% solution of Liquinox

  2. Spray or wipe with 70% isopropanol  x 2

  3. Spray or wipe with deionized water x 3

  4. Dry with disposable lint-free wipe



These are the cleaning solutions we use to clean our TADDs after a day of training:

Bottle 1 – Deionized Water


Bottle 2 – 70 % Isopropanol (IPA) Alcohol


Bottle 3 – 1% Liquinox Detergent

  1. Dilute the Liquinox Concentrate 1:100 with water to create the 1% Liquinox solution.

  2. To do this, add 4.5 mL (a heaping teaspoon) of the Liquinox Concentrate to the 16 oz. spray bottle

  3. Then, add 444 mL deionized water (approximately 15 oz.) to the spray bottle. 

  4. Cap the spray bottle and swirl gently to mix solution.

  1. Source a high-quality dry wipe such as the one depicted here.

  2. Source your own distilled or deionized water (e.g., Amazon, Home Depot, or a Pharmacy).

  3. Add just enough water to saturate the wipes.

  4. Wipe away!


NOTE: Your wipes do not contain a preservative, so this bucket will probably not last for more

than a day or two. Make this wipe bucket fresh each time you need it.

*For use in simple cleaning and removal of dog secretions on sample hide locations.

*Use 70% IPA or ETOH wipes for more aggressive cleaning and in between dog sessions.
