Cheap Surgical Brushes


Great for scrubbing vegetables and cleaning fingernails

These cheap plastic disposable nail brushes are used as surgical prep brushes. I buy a dozen every few years. I have one or two by the sink in the bathroom and kitchen, a couple in the garden shed, and one for when I do intensive clean-out of our chicken coop. As the catalog copy says, they’re fabulous for cleaning out your nails or for scrubbing dirt off of vegetables. Buy a dozen, and I can guarantee that you’ll find lots of uses for them.
