Fast & Easy Method to Clean Hairbrushes Like Magic

My two daughters and I all have long hair and our hairbrushes can get pretty clogged with hair very quickly. It’s not always easy to get rid of all the excess hair, especially with my round brushes. I use these ceramic core brushes to help dry my hair faster but I don’t think they work properly if they’re so clogged that the warm air can’t get through. I’ve tried everything from scissors to combs to help pull all the hair out but it always takes quite a bit of effort and time to finish the job.

Well I was reading an old article about the many ways to use dryer sheets and one of the uses they mentioned was cleaning hairbrushes so I thought I’d give it a try. All you have to do is find a glass or jar that your brushes will fit in, cover them with water, cut a dryer sheet in half and throw it in. Walk away and in about an hour you can pull out the brushes and the hair comes right off like magic! Easy breezy with very little effort. They come out looking like new!

I used Bounce dryer sheets but any brand should do – they all work to get rid of wrinkles and static and apparently those same ingredients help loosen and soften the hair so that it comes off the brushes easily. I decided to do a few brushes at once so I put them in this glass vase with a full dryer sheet and it did the trick. When I was finished I realized that I still could have used just half a dryer sheet even in the bigger container of water.

Check out the before and after pictures below – there was an amazing amount of hair that came out of them as you can see in the photos above and I’m thrilled with how easy it was to remove the hair after the brushes had soaked for an hour. It only took a few seconds to pull the hair off as opposed to the 20-30 minutes I used to spend cutting, pulling and scraping the hair out of the brushes.
