The product that makes deep cleans fun!
Our Solid Deep Clean Balm is our bestseller for a reason, its quick to use and smells amazing! After reading this you'll say goodbye to dirty brushes forever!
Step 1 - Wet your brush
Run your brushes under lukewarm water. It is important to avoid completely submerging the entire brush under water as this can loosen the glue in the ferrule causing damage to your brush and cause expansion in the wooden handle. Position the brush so that just the hairs are exposed to the water.
Step 2- Work up a lather
Gently swirl your brush over the surface of the balm until a foam appears. You may need to repeat this a few times to ensure that all the hairs have been covered.
Step 3- Deep Clean
Use the silicone mat in the lid to lather the product through the brush. The grooves in the mat allow for the product to disperse through the entire brush and ensures a deep clean that penetrates the pores of the brush hairs. This is especially important in our natural hair brushes. Using the mat will double your cleaning power meaning you won't have to repeat wash as many times.
Step 4- Rinse
Rinse until water runs clear. Make sure to squeeze the brush to ensure no soap remains.
Step 5 - Dry
Shape brushes and lay flat with the hair off the edge of a table to dry. This allows air to reach all sides of the brush meaning they will dry quicker! It is important to not dry your brushes upright in a canister or jar, this can cause the water to run down into the ferrule of the brush and break down the glue. Oh and those little netted sleeves that come with your brushes, don't throw them out! Slip them on for the drying process to help your brushes stay in shape!
How often should I deep clean my brushes? It's important to deep clean your brushes regularly. If you are using the Gentle Clean Brush Cleaner and Sanitiser you can go a bit longer between deep cleans but it is recommended at least once every 2-4 weeks depending on how often you apply makeup.
Now it's time to clean those brushes!!! No more excuses!
