Antibacterial nail clipper / Antibacterial nail clipp

Antibacterial nail clipper

About 700000 people worldwide die of bacterial infections every year. There are about 4 billion bacteria in a gram of nail, and there are more than 30 kinds of pathogenic bacteria. In developing countries, infections due to sharing nail clippers are common. 80% of the families will not disinfect the used nail clippers, or even lend the nail clippers to outsiders, eventually infecting bacteria. In order to solve this problem, we use the natural antibacterial property of copper alloy to design a fingernail finger contact, and set up disinfection knife edge copper alloy plate and other structures, to provide users with a more secure experience.
