    Are You Using The Wrong End Of Your Toothbrush

    We all know which end to use to brush your teeth.
    But that is the wrong end for cleaning crusty artifacts.
    Don't throw your old toothbrushes away.
    While researching artifact cleaning I came across Andres cleaning tools:

    They offer a fiberglass cleaning pencil and that got me to thinking hard plastic.
    Toothbush handles are pretty hard plastic.
    Bought these a couple years ago for my shop:
    https://smile.amazon.com/Complete-An...s%2C283&sr=8-1
    Put a bevel on 1 and cut the end off the other and beveled each point.
    Use the uncut 1 for scrapping and the 2 points for detail.


    Any toothbrush will work, they all have hard plastic handles.
    Just put a bevel or a point on it, depending on you want to use it for.

    If it's old, I'll dig it, dive on it, detect it or sometimes when I get lucky just bend over and pick it up.
