Fixedit for you. For YouTube tags, put the video ID code in, nothing more. It won't work for profiles afaik.

Did a nice job on the video though there may be a problem. It may just be the editing. It looks like they cleaned the contaminated soils from the items prior to decon. Is this not backwards? Isn't the pathogen in the soils? I would decon even the soils on all of the equipment then clean. Otherwise, is there not a risk of picking up the pathogen from the surrounding area and carried elsewhere? The community needs a vetted authoratative source of instructional videos. They need to be updated as improvements occur.

Yes, the decon video shows the proper order, which is to clean all dirt/mud/organics from gear BEFORE disinfecting. The lab studies show that the organics tend to make the disinfectants less effective.
