Question Sterilising grooming tools?

I have a complete grooming kit at home (hoof pick, brushes, curry, etc.) that I used on the school horses while I was in college on the riding team. I'm about to get my own horse, and I would like to use those brushes, but to be on the safe side I want to disinfect them first. What do you guys recommend? I was just going to soak them in a bleach solution but I wasn't sure if that would have a negative affect on the bristle brushes. Help please!

I just clean mine when I give my girls a bath...put them all in the bucket of soapy water.

If your concerned about using bleach you can also do the same thing with white vinegar.

I was wondering if tJust make sure you dry any metal you have very very well!!! You don't want them rusting.

I use commercial grade Lysol for any barn/equipment disinfecting. They have it at Lowe's or Menards, any home improvement type store. It's handy to have around, good to disinfect stalls, trailer, etc.

Bleach, Pine sol, Lysol, Listerine.....

Pick one, soak (diluted with water in case of some of them), then leave the tools out in the sun to bake.
