Shampoo Rinse Repeat

How do you actually clean the brushes?

Follow these steps for cleaner, good-as-new brushes and blenders.

  1. Wet the bristles with lukewarm water. If the water is too hot the glue that hold your bristles will get loose.
  2. Place a drop of your favorite professional shampoo into the palm of your hand.
  3. Gently massage the tips of the bristles in your palm.
  4. Rinse the bristles.
  5. Squeeze out the excess moisture with a clean towel.
  6. Reshape the brush head.
  7. Let the brush dry on a baking rack to keep the shape while allowing for air flow. Do not dry vertically โ€” this will cause water to leak into the ferrule and cause shedding also, never let your brushes dry on a towel โ€” the bristles can become mildewed.
  8. Lastly, I like to mist my brushes with 99% alcohol for extra sanitation
