How should I care for and clean my Sam Villa brushes?

Last Updated: Sep 12, 2014 08:33AM CDT
Important Care & Cleaning Instructions:
Remove hair from brush.
Prepare a warm water and liquid soap or mild shampoo bath.
Dip natural bristles several times into the warm soapy water.
Rinse brush with cool water.
Let air dry.

Tips:
Do not soak paddle or cushion brushes as they may fill with water.
Do not soak natural bristles as this can cause the bristles to separate and the handles to warp.
When disinfecting, due to the nature of wood and natural boar, we recommend using a gentler practice of dipping rather than soaking the brush in your chosen sanitation product. If the brush was soaked, it's possible that this may have encouraged the finish to peel.

In this regard to Texas, the proper procedure would be:
Remove visible debris and hairs (our Brush Cleaner is ideal for this step)
The next step would be to immerse the brush in a state board "recognized" EPA approved disinfectant (such as Barbicide®) for 10 minutes. After this 10 minute time period is up, the stylist would remove the brush, rinse thoroughly and allow it to dry before use. Some states recognize that stylists avoid disinfecting their boar bristle/wooden brushes and therefore allow for the stylist to spray their brush with a disinfectant (allowing 10 minute contact time), rinse thoroughly and allow it to dry before use.
