Question Dried super glue on shaving brush toxic?

Hi,


I bought a shaving brush from Amazon. Within a week the brush separated from the holder. To stick them together I used super glue from dollar tree. Both the base and the brush bottom was wood. I let it dry and it was holding good.

Now my question is I read all kinds of warning labels on the glue. Is it safe to use the shaving brush when the glue has dried up? Is it still toxic to use. What happens when it comes in contact with water?

Thanks.

Any hazard would be with un-dried glue. Once dried the glue would be waterproof and safe.

Super glue is so safe it can be used for first aid. If you don't have a band-aid and get a minor cut you can use super glue to seal the cut.

If it comes apart again, try five minute, two part epoxy. That what I use when I make those.

You are not going to eat the brush are you?

Use it in peace and have no worries.
