If you've ever had to self-prep for a medical procedure, you may have used a nylon brush just like this one. Intended for use directly on skin, the brush is gentle but very effective. What's amazing is how well it winkles dirt out of your cuticles and from under your fingernails; in non-medical use, this solves a constant problem for gardeners and woodworkers. Only 2" × 3", it has 1440 individual bristles that are subtle but insistent, cleaning hands far better than any combination of stiff bristles and cloths. Since we introduced it, many of you have told us that it's also an unequalled vegetable brush. We offer the brushes in pairs (for bathroom and kitchen) as well as in dozens because they are popular gifts. Made in USA.
