How to Clean Your Brush From All the Dirt

How do you clean the brush? Do you use it to comb your hair and then remove the stuck hair with your hands? The method is correct, mind you, but it is just the first step.

After cleaning, run a comb through the bristles or, for an even better result, use specific brush cleaners available in the market. If you encounter stubborn tangles, use a pair of nail scissors or tweezers to carefully remove them.

When fluff or other types of dirt, like dandruff, accumulate, it’s time for a thorough cleaning. While commercial products are available, opting for an eco-friendly remedy benefits both your health and the environment. In just a few simple steps you will get your brush back to new condition.

No matter your level of experience, implementing this method is easy, and you’ll feel good about your conscience. Small gestures make the difference. So, why wait? Let’s explore the technique for thoroughly cleaning your brush.

As usual, let’s start from the list of ingredients:

  • sodium bicarbonate;
  • a little shampoo.

First of all, find a basin and fill it with warm water. Add two tablespoons of baking soda and a drop of shampoo, then mix the solution. Immerse the brush in this mixture, allowing it to soak for at least fifteen minutes.

Take a toothbrush (a nail cleaning brush works well, too) and gently scrub the base of the bristles. The soaked brush makes it easier to remove dirt, and you’ll also remove any previously deposited skin oils. Before using it, rinse and dry well.

If the brush is made of wood, avoid soaking and quickly immerse and rub it instead. Prolonged soaking may risk damaging the wood. If you’re unsatisfied with the results, repeat the process several times until you achieve the desired cleanliness.
