February 06, 2019
Although trusted to keep your footwear clean, it’s only a matter of time before your shoe polish brush gets dirty, too.
If you think your only option is to purchase a new shoe polish brush, think again! Here’s how to get your shoe polish brush in like-new condition again in only three steps.
Step #1: Use the Proper Technique to Clean Your Shoe Shine Brushes
Eventually, residual polish from will accumulate on the bristles of your shoe shine brush.
When that happens, simply buff the bristles across a clean chamois or towel.
Next, rotate the brush in the opposite direction. You should see the residual polish wipe off right away. To ensure that loose horse hair will be completely removed from the brush, use our brush cleaning comb. This way you'll avoid any future frustration when loose bristles
will transfer to your shoe polishing jobs.
Step #2: Keep Your Shoe Polish Brushes in Excellent Condition
Fortunately, shoe shine brushes do not require much maintenance.
To keep them in their best condition, buff the bristles following the instructions in Step #1 regularly.
For best results, buff them each time after you polish your shoes. This eliminates the risk of any residual polish creating streaks on your shoes the next time you clean them.
