Barbers' Shops

Barbers' Shops

Regulations were drawn up to ensure the cleanliness of these shops and the apparatus used by the Egyptian barbers. They were required to wash their hands before attending to each customer and to provide clean covers and towels. Hair and shaving brushes had to be washed and soaked in 5 per cent dettol or carbolic solution for an hour each time they were used, and combs, scissors, and hair clippers had to be cleaned and soaked in 5 per cent dettol for ten minutes.
