Do you guys with multiple brushes feel the need for a four brush stand?

Lee, in one of your posts a short while ago i.e Brush & Razor stand idea's........ I responded saying an adjustable one to accommodate different size handles "anything happened"

Back to this post...... As I tend too rotate/change my daily routine of shaving brushes, my suggestion would be a Stand for seven (7) and accommodate with above........

O.K I will go and lay down.

I don't use stands for my brushes, but many others do, so my $ is on yes there would be a market for multiple brush holding stands.

I find it important to have the brush I used last on a stand, so that it dries better, but I just keep my other rotation brushes tucked away in the drawer.

However, a 4 brush stand could be nice... If it's not too large, because brushes do occupy a lot more space than razors! Wink

I no longer use a stand. When I did use a stand I only had one, which was for the brush I just shaved with. All the other brushes stood on their base.

The better question: is there a need for a brush stand at all?

I use a two-brush stand. I like my brushes to dry in the stand for 2 days after use before I put them back in the wall rack, so this works well. I have a custom two-brush stand with larger diameter holes for the times when I'm using my extra-large brushes. Together the two stands meet my needs.

No, but a lot of people like them. Cool

I do use a stand, but I have a stand that only holds one brush. I typically use a 3-5 brush rotation. I think a stand that held 3-5 brushes that was as economic space wise would be useful. possibly something that held two brushes on a bottom row and a 3rd brush above?

Just my thoughts.

Seems like most guys are thinking a sort of shelving unit. I was thinking more along the lines of a regular center post stand with four brush holders instead of just a brush & razor holder. So it would look like a cross with four brush holders.

Either case, I've come to the conclusion that this is better for the world of custom made shaving gear.

I have 7 brushes and my 1 stand hasn't seen use in 2-3 years. It resides in my basement box of misfit shaving toys along with my scuttle and who knows what else.

I don't use a stand myself - I see them more for their aesthetic appeal rather than a practical solution to storage & brush drying.

Mrs. W tends to frown now & again as the bathroom window sill breeds badger.

Actually...now that I think about it, that would probably work really well and be aesthetically pleasing for my purposes, but it appears that I am certainly in the minority on this!

I must say I wasn't expecting replies like this, and it has gotten me a little puzzled. Huh

I've always thought the most recommended way was setting them hair down on a stand, in order for the water not to get into the know while the brush is drying.

How do you dry your brushes, Mark?

I also just set my brushes down using the built in brush stand (flat bottom) and let dry bristles up.

I rinse my brushes thoroughly post use with clean warm water, ensuring all traces of soap or cream residue are removed.

You can check this by very gently squeezing around the base of the knot when rinsing. The soap or cream will be quite prominent if still contained within the base of the bristles - I keep rinsing until all is clean.

I'll then shake the brush out by hand, as vigorous as my grip will allow, then pat or gently sweep over a soft hand or bath towel to remove any excess moisture.

I'll stand my brush near to the open bathroom window, on the sill generally, then alternate my brushes daily allowing sufficient drying time.

That's it my friend - no need for stands!

Cheers,

Mark

There's no need for a brush stand from a functional perspective, however many like the aesthetics of having one ... as for a 4 brush stand, my thought is that there would be limited broad appeal for such an item.
