What is your process for cleaning and reusing broad heads? I replaced 2 blades on my Muzzy trocar and cleaned with soap and water as good as I could but was wondering if I should give the whole broad head a little soak in peroxide or something to kill and remaining germs from the hog I killed or is soap and water all thats needed? I just don't want to transfer bacteria from a broad head to another animal when I shoot it, if thats even an issue.

I just wash in soap and water then sharpen them back up. But I use Montecs and no blades to replace or slots for gunk to get in.

I just use dish soap, water and a tooth brush.

I have a little different approach. I clean them in the shower. Resharpen and repeat.

I soak mine in peroxide first before washing and brushing. I'm not sure it works, but it makes me feel better! Lol

Same as above then spin test them on the arrow to make sure there is no wobble.

I clean them up and replace blades as needed. Put them in a jar of alcohol for a while to get rid of any extra water and kill whatever else might be on them. You can store them in alcohol until next season if you want.

Why bother cleaning them? Kinda like the alcohol pad sterilization before the lethal injection.

I have been using the same 6 traditional glue-on broadheads for over 10 years. Little bit of alcohol, soap and water and then dried off and put back in the quiver. They are a lot easier to clean
