My SBAD is firmly in place and as it seems I am beyond finding a cure there's the issue of having too many brushes to rotate thru in a month (or two). So what is the preferred method of storing a brush that may not see action for awhile ? I have a few medicine tubes that seem to do the job. But what do you all suggest and do I even need to worry about it ? I'm keeping my brush rotation in a cabinet so heat/cold/sunlight/etc... isn't a concern but dust ?

I have nearly 100 brushes, which I keep in and on racks mounted on my bedroom wall. Since all are used in my rotation, each comes up about every 3 months or so. They seem to do fine without any dusting or other extra care.

I use a brush for about a week before I rotate it. I use Muhle travel tubes to store all my brushes.

So the whole "use a brush once" then rotate to another is bogus ?

Only thing I ever had happen that messed up a brush- moths. I used to live in an older home months back, and a moth had got one of my vintage Kent brushes. Ate small clumps out of the tips unfotunately..

I used to clean and rinse, let them dry in the open for 2 days, then box and store in my basement. One of them stayed there for a year before it got back in rotation. I have a more manageable number these days.

I keep two brushes (one for face and one for bowl lathering) and two razors (one mild one aggressive) on my sink and change this every Saturday. I dont have enough time every day to change razors/brush.

My brushes are either Omega or Semogue and each of them comes new in this nice little square plastic container. Brushes not being used are in a special drawer in the plastic containers.

I was eying the spice racks that go into a kitchen drawer, but I'm not sure that is the direction I will choose.

Put those in the kitchen but don't be surprised when your wife uses one to spread melted butter with. Smile

Would bring a whole new view of Carolina Moppin' Sauce. Could you imagine walking in the kitchen and your wife is scrubbing down a Boston butt with your Rooney Finest?
