The PawTool is manufactured from solid brass and as such contains 70% copper.
The surfaces of copper and its alloys, such as brass and bronze, are antimicrobial. They have an inherent ability to kill a wide range of harmful microbes relatively rapidly – often within two hours or less – and with a high degree of efficiency. These antimicrobial properties have been demonstrated by an extensive body of research.
If you wish to further clean your PawTool we recommend washing it with soap and water or utilizing any alcohol based cleaning product.
