Comfortable and easy to hold in your hand, the KBF99 Long Fiber Dandy Brush keeps your horse’s coat shiny and healthy while helping to protect your horse from irritating and harmful skin disorders. KBF99 brushes are designed to kill over 99% of bacteria and fungi, without using harsh chemicals. KBF99 coats the surface of the plastic with thousands of molecular strands or microscopic spikes. KFB99 is also positively charged which attracts the negative charge of the bacteria and fungi. The spikes or swords rupture the cell membranes and the contact between the positive and negative charges effectively blows the cell apart. As the organisms are killed physically, no chemicals are ever released. KBF99 brushes have been tested by Coventry University in England to be effective against strangles, ringworm, E.coli and mycotoxins. To clean your brush please use hot soapy water (no bleach) and let dry.
