Hi, is there a way to fully clean a bristle brush that used previously on guinea pig that has mites.

The piggies are fine now, but I haven't use the brush sometimes and thought would be a waste to throw away.

I don't know if that material would survive something like a heat treatment. You may want to nuke it in something like hot water/soap or maybe vinegar. Just let it soak like you would a normal hairbrush.

Yea, i can try to do so.. Better than I just throw away. Thanks for the suggestion. 😊
 
If you know what type of mites they were, search, "-mite type- egg viability". You can search through and see under what conditions and timeframe the eggs will still be able to hatch (which can be years in some species). That is, if it's worth all that effort instead of just buying a new brush.
