The Rengora bath body brush, made of natural boar bristles, can be used for dry skin brushing and for scrubbing yourself while bathing. To make sure that you get the most out of this brush, here are a few tips on how to care for it:
- Air Dry Your Brush: Since the brush has an all-natural cherry wood handle, and its usage will most likely involve contact with water, the probability of mold attacking the wood cannot be ignored. To ensure that this is prevented, you should shake off excess water from the brush after showering or bathing and air the brush out to allow it to dry when not in use. Not doing so will make your brush retain moisture therefore making it susceptible to mold.
- Rinse Well After Use: Make a habit of rinsing off the soap from the brush and ensuring that no soap remains trapped in between the bristles.
- Avoid Soaking the Brush in Water: Wood absorbs water. Soaking the brush will slowly damage the wooden handle. Try as much as possible to clean the brush without leaving it sitting in water for too long.
- Use Warm Soapy Water: You can swirl the brush inside a bowl of warm soapy water to remove trapped dirt if you notice any. Confirm that it is clean by parting the bristles and removing any stubborn dirt.
- Oil the Brush Handle Once in Awhile: Oiling will prevent the cherry wood handle from splitting. This will be accomplished since the oil seals out moisture from penetrating the wood. You could use Tea Tree oils or alternatively immerse the handle in linseed oil.
- Avoid Long Exposure to Direct Sunlight: Avoid exposing the brush to direct sunlight for long periods of time as this can damage the handle and cause it to crack. If you choose to air your brush outside, do so by putting it in a shady spot to keep it safe from the sun.
