Our Traveller Nailbrush is fit for any sized adventure and even the smallest sized hand. At only 6 x 2.8 cm (2.5 x 1 in), this handy hygiene helper is perfectly pocket sized to accompany you to airports, campsites, and mountain tops. And, it’s the perfect petite size for kids to brush away the day’s dirt.
Deftly double-sided, our Traveller Nailbrush has long bristles on one side to rub and scrub hands and feet and aptly angled short bristles on the reverse side to firmly clean cuticles and under the nails.
For extra hand care, add a drop of tea tree or lavender to sudsy bristles to banish biofilms and get rid of germs. For a fantastic finishing touch, follow up with Cuticle Care Oil and Hooray Hand Crème for soft, smooth hands.
These beautiful brushes are made to last and handcrafted with renewable, durable beechwood. This finely crafted Beechwood Nailbrush also comes in a larger size, 9.5 x 3.5 cm (4 x 1 in).
The bodies of the brushes are made of solid, oiled beechwood. Wood brushes should not be left sitting in water. When you take a pause from brushing, place the brush bristle-side down on the edge of the sink or tub.
After using, rinse the bristles with clear water. Tap off excess water and place the brush bristles downwards on a dry towel. The bristles may be washed in lukewarm, soapy water, rinsed with hydrogen peroxide, or dropped into boiling water for 30 seconds and dried in the sun.Hand Washing: Health is in Your Hands
