Actually, alcohol will kill most bacteria, so you're wrong. But I agree that it's sick that she's using them in the first place, and going through the trouble of sterilizing them without removing the hair. There's tweezers at Walgreen's for a dollar and they work just fine on my eyebrows... if you're not a caveman, it shouldn't be a big deal to get a new one (at least she wasn't using your hairbrush on the dog and GIVING you ticks).

ew that's sick y doesn't she just by shampoo that removes ticks also protection like frontline so he doesn't get them no more.

Yea, like the best way to get them off is take a match, light it, wave it out and then stick the burt part to the tick, careful not to poke to person/animal.....

with ticks on dogs you cant burn them off...that will just burn their hair and plus...it does not really even work

LOL I remember having a puppy in Oklahoma when I was 8 and my mom would burn them then poke them with a tweazer into a cup of alchol.. one time she had to burn one out of my scalp from camping... I'm too scared to camp now! ewww! sorry op!

actually you are stupid. her mom is actually removing the ticks properly. alcohol will sanitize anything that the tick or dog would have as long as it is dipped for 60 to 90 seconds and then allowed to air dry. if that creeps you out though run them through the dish washer or soak them in soapy water. your mom may be saving your dogs life, so quit being so vain.

the alcohol would kill all the germs on the hair though... so it's clean obviously. you are just a wimp. ydi. unless you don't take the hair off you're fine.

yeah, really gross. Imagine the poor tick being squished by tweezers with icky eyebrow still stuck on. A cruel death indeed

Yeah-who cares if your own mother uses your personal care items for other, unclean purposes? Also, who cares if she does not adequately wash them, afterwords?

Hehe, who knows what kind of things the OP didn't notice... She might want to clean her toothbrush, etc to. I'd be more worried about that.

fyl because, that could potentially be dangerous, ticks carry lime disease. go buy some different tweezers, (snaps in air) just like that problem solved. :)

Did she say she had ticks on her eyebrows? I don't think so, and I hope not. She just simply discovered that stuff on her tweezers.

this problem could be solved if you stop pulling out your eyebrow hair. wth would you want to do that?
