Brushing up on brush care
If you enjoy using a shaving brush make sure you protect your investment. Here are the do’s and don’ts of brush care.
Quality shaving brushes are made using badger hair, held by glue. After shaving, rinse the shaving cream from the brush and shake off excess water. Never stand your wet brush facing upwards. Water will seep into the handle breaking down the glue and the hairs will start to fall out. Instead, use a stand or hang the brush on a hook in a well-ventilated area.
