    Thanks Jody,
    Although I don't think too many are using or seeking out brushes from that era and if they did I can't imagine someone not thoroughly cleaning it first.

    I always assumed that if something sat around for decades unused, it would be safe (an old razor for instance).
    I have used old razor's without great sterilization efforts.

    My assumption may has been incorrect.

    Alcohol becomes germicidal at 70%. 70- 90% is available at most drug stores.
    A few wipes on ALL new to me razors is a must as well as any I test before returning to a customer.

    Some guys dip a blade in Barbisol before handling it. I usually spray it off with isopropyl alcohol at some point before taking it to my face. And as I dip my blades in an alchohol-mineral solution after shaving, I then spray it off with alcohol before shaving.

    I may be incorrect but during one of my vet classes I think it was mentioned that horses naturally carry the anthrax spores genetically!! I may be incorrect and it has been 40 years since college!!
