TOP-TIPS FOR BRUSH CLEANSING
It’s all nicely and good constructing a group of finely tuned beauty tools, however the actual secret is to take care of them with common brush cleaning. I requested among the crew for his or her top-tips for cleansing their brushes…
“I always swear by a dedicated brush cleanser (unless I run out and then I just use baby shampoo) to clean my brushes and although brush mats have gained popularity, I find it more effective to swirl the brush in the palm of my hands. I wash with warm water and cleanser before rinsing and repeat this until the water runs clear. My top tip is to try have your brushes standing up or slanted, facing down, so the water doesn’t run into the handle, preventing damage.” – Jemma, Editor & Social Media Manager
“I always use very mild baby shampoo to clean my brushes, it doesn’t damage the hairs and leaves them clean and soft. I also have a brush stand that cleverly holds multiple brushes to ensure they dry without damaging the rest of the brush.” – Harri, Brand Campaign Manager
“I am pretty lazy when it comes to cleaning my brushes, but when I do, I find that using regular hand soap with a massaging technique removes grime the easiest. I swirl in my hand and repeat until clean.” – Christina, Sales Director
“Cleaning brushes can be hell!! But what i like to do and what works amazingly is using an alcohol spray with some cotton pads- you’d be surprised at how clean they look after!” – Sasha, Brand Development Manager
