Hi Brush lovers..I thought I'd ask how you deal with this issue..Some non-white creams seem to leave their mark behind them..What is your recommended method for removing product stains from brush tips??

Julian,

Have you tried a good brush cleaner like MAC Cleaner or a good hair shampoo to try to see if it will come out in a standard wash?

GD..

I am unfamiliar with MAC Cleaner..So far I've used Borax and a little white vinegar..But perhaps I need to look for MAC.... Thanks!

I like using Orange cleaners for my brushes, clean very well and leave them smelling good.

Julian,if you have tried borax in the past,you know how effective is.
I also did read one,a guy who used the scrubbing bubbles foam to get rid of the coloring that the Trumper violet cream left on his two band brush,and it seems it works too,or at least,for him.

Unless you like a never ending problem, why not dedicate one brush to it and decide you like a lavendar colored brush?

If you do, make it a custom lavender handled brush!
