Tip #15: Easy Steps to Clean Your Hair Tools at Home!
Cleanliness is probably on everyone’s top priority these days. One of the things people forget to clean (if ever) is their hair brushes.
Here are 3 easy steps to clean your brushes/combs.
Tools you’ll need:
a clean tooth brush
1 cleanser mix (nothing fancy here unless you want the ultimate soaking barbicide)
For the Cleaning Solution Mix - There’s a reason the whole equal parts distilled vinegar and water idea is still around. It works. It’s a great disinfectant against bacteria, molds & mildews and tough on hard water stains, soap scums, and calcium deposits. I practically use it all over my house.
However, I hate the smell of vinegar so I opt for the citric acid powder and mix 2.5 tsp of it for every cup of water.
Step 1: COMB out the hair on your brushes.
Step 2: Submerge and soak brushes for at least 20 minutes in a cleaning solution. (see vinegar or citric acid mixture at the end.)
Step 3: Scrub with toothbrush and lay out on a clean towel to dry.
