Provide for Extreme Care in Handling the Various Instruments


Sanitary rules to govern the practice of barbering and for regulation of all barber shops in the state were issued yesterday by the barbers' state board of examiners and copies mailed to every. boss barber in the state by Secretary, M. H. Whittaker of Janesville.


They provide for extreme care in the handling of all barbers' tools in order to prevent the communication of contagious skin diseases All tools shall be sterilized after the day's work and all lather brushes and cups shall-be cleansed with boiling water before-using on each customer.




Barbers are forbidden to shave any person having erysipelas or other contagious skin disease, unless the person shall have an individual cup and staging apparatus.


The board provides that the rules shall be posted in a conspicuous place in each shop and all barbers are requested to report any violations of the rules that they may have knowledge of.


The board also recommends that customers be not shaved too close, as this practice encourages skin diseases and aids in their communication from one person to another.
