It has been forever and a day since I have blogged here, and I felt it was high time to post some content! Today was brush cleaning day as I have a bridal trial coming up this weekend, so I thought I'd make a quick video showing you the product I use to clean my brushes. I am currently using the Zote laundry bar to clean them, and have for about a year. You can purchase these at Wal-Mart for about 97 cents, and they are huge and last forever. I had to go on a wild goose chase to find them in a store near me, so best believe I stocked up!
Be sure not to let your brushes soak in the water as you're washing them, this causes the brush handles to swell and the bristles to fall out!
Rinse very well, then lay on clean towel to dry, or use a brush drying rack with brushes pointing down.
If you have stubborn stains, you can use a bit of Dawn Dish Soap or Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner to remove them. Once I am finished, I wipe the handles down with 70% alcohol and spritz the bristles down to sanitize them as well. Using 70% alcohol is recommended, as 99% alcohol dries too quickly, and does not allow enough time for the brushes to be sanitized.
Let me know if you have any questions!
