Remove loose hair from the tufts regularly by inserting the cleaner tool (LPC2) or a comb on the side and remove the old hair. Sometimes, only the bristles are placed in the water using warm mild soapy water, trying not to submerge the wood, as this damages the wood. Never use harsh detergents or ammonia. Finally, wipe with a clean towel gently dry. Allow the bristles to dry naturally to face down and away from the sun, radiators, hairdryers or any artificial heat.

The base of wood was not intended to be repeatedly wet, as wetness expands wood and dryness contracts it. This can definitely lead to cracks if repeated too often.

A bit about Kent: Did you know Kent was founded in 1777 and is renowned for its outstanding reputation?

Kent Brushes were produced in 1777 by William Kent under the reign of George III. Kent has a pre-eminent role in the history of brush making, with an uninterrupted legacy of excellence in the quality of its production, which has been acknowledged by the issuance of Royal Warrants for nine reigns. Kent Brushes is a member of the Trade Boards Association and has a registered factory code of 507789. William Kent’s great-granddaughter was Elizabeth Lister, Lady Lucan, wife of the 7th Baron Lucan and mother of the legendary Lord Lucan. In 1777, master brushmaker William Kent registered his first brush maker’s mark. Kent Brushes was then established by Kent and his wife Susannah, in the Georgian period Kent brushes were at the height of their popularity among the nobility and have been favored for more than 200 years.
