We have been selling the Anchor Super Scrub 2000 for almost two years now. I handle the customer service for people who may not want to give their credit card information over the Internet, cannot get a charge through, or need to be invoiced for orders. The conversations I've had have made me feel there is a great need to tell people about this product.
I have talked to two medics who were issued these brushes in the Vietnam War in the late 1960s and their brushes are just now wearing out after daily use. These two individuals called about a month apart and were so glad to find these again; they really felt they were a treasured tool. We have communicated with several mechanics that have just now needed to replace them after 30 years of use in the shop. One very nice woman was so thrilled to find these she has told most of her friends and we have had a flurry of orders in her part of Florida recently.
We sell these fingernail brushes to universities, hospitals, private individuals, test facilities, manufacturing, and many food service operations (listed in about the order of volume). Since we also sell to the military, we have the Military Ordering Codes
available, including the NSN Information code 6530-00-772-5935, Feature codes, and Manufacturing Part Numbers (SKUs)
I must say that, recently, I visited my sister who has taken several HACCP courses. She has the brushes in every bathroom in her home. It was nice and felt good to see these brushes that clean your hands so well, so quickly, and really dilute the pathogens to a very safe level. I used to use a pumice-type soap, the Lava brand. I threw my block of Lava away after realizing regular hand soap and this brush clean better because it has the right softness to get into the grooves of your hand. The bristles are soft and gentle, yet strong enough to get the dirt and grease out quickly.
For hospital use these take autoclaving for 15 minutes, which cuts down on their life but they still last a very long time.
We will be posting testimonials of some older and new clients' excitement about the Anchor Super Scrub 2000.
Below you will find a brief description of each product and some tips for using each.
Fingernail brush for $5.50To reduce foodborne illness, a foodservice worker should use the Double Hand Wash method after he/she enters or is working in the food service kitchen. A fingernail brush is an essential part of this method of proper hand washing and we offer you the best: the Anchor Surgeon's brush.
Every food-handling employee can have his/her own nail brush for removing pathogens responsible for foodborne illness from fingertips. You should use a fingernail brush to produce a lather and scrub your fingernails, paying special attention to the fingertips.

Satisfied Customers I have used your hand brush for some where around 60 or 70 years as my father and uncle used them in the dental office. I joined them in 1960 and used them in my practice and home since 1955. NOTHING COMPARES! They seem to disappear, children and grandchildren borrow them!
T. Grewe, Wisconsin
After having tried nearly every brush from toothbrushes to scrub brushes, I recently found a brush that is absolutely essential for cleaning hands. It is just like the surgical scrub brush my father still has from the 1960's. (His is still in good condition.)
Imagine how dirty my hands and under my nails get from working on the farm. Now, imagine trying to clean out all the ground-in "dirt" and get everything out from under my fingernails. This brush comfortably and efficiently cleans my arms, hands, and cuticles. The extra row of bristles on the top is absolutely great for cleaning under fingernails. I just ordered one for every sink in my house and barn.
This brush should be mandatory for all healthcare and food handlers!
Hope, West Virginia
Thank you for your prompt service. I really love my new brushes. They are gentle on the skin yet strong.
K. Doyle, Cleveland, Ohio

J. Hughes, U.K.
Thank you very much (for the PDT300 digital thermistor), I already have one of your digital thermometers so I know how well they work. I did purchase a similar model however it took so long to read the correct temp. it was slowing my business down, so we decided only to purchase from yourselves in the future.
T. Pease, Spain

What i have learnt will be put into practice and pass on to others as i go along.
Thanks for the knowledge gain. God bless.

Comark PDQ400 Pocket Digital Thermistor thermometer with case
These thermister thermometers are the state of the art for today’s food service employees, managers and chefs. Dishwasher safe and the most accurate, they are very quick reading and do not need calibration every time you have a temperature change or drop them. They are among the best HACCP approved thermometers available today. Each comes with its own case.
A thermistor is a probe thermometer that measures the temperature of food electronically and produces a digital display of the results. The most accurate way to measure internal temperatures of food is using a thermocouple or thermistor thermometer. The PDQ400 Pocket Digital Thermistor features a tapered tip and improved electronics, the high accuracy of which generates readings at ±1°F; ±0.5°C - same as a thermocouple - continuing to make it the fastest responding and most accurate pocket digital on the market today. Still reasonably priced at $32.50 (including shipping), Comark's PDQ400 digital thermistor features exceptional accuracy and speed in reading temperature results.
A foodservice worker needs to check temperatures while cooking food to make sure that it gets done all the way inside. This thermistor's tapered tip will ensure that your thin foods such as meats, poultry, fish, and seafood entrees will be juicy and tender, yet safe to eat. Since you can measure the temperature of your casseroles and vegetable dishes with accuracy, you can determine if they have been pasteurized and are at a safe eating temperature.
It is calibratable if you are in the field (be sure to use 32°F slush ice)! If this thermistor is calibrated using 32°F slush ice, it displays temperatures lower and higher than the thermistor described below, showing a range of -4°F(-20°C) to 400°F(200°C). Retail Food Alliance recommends placing this thermistor at least 3/4 of an inch deep into food for 6 seconds or less. Wash and sanitize the thermometer each time you check the temperature of a food and place it in its own waterproof case for protection.
