Despite I believe that holding wet brushes upside down is not necessary, here is a couple of improvised holders made of Scotch tape holders.

After you shake water off the brush, the remaining water is held with rather capillary action than gravity. That means It does not really matter whether you hold it up or down, it will dry out with the same speed. Do not trust me? Set up an experiment with identical brushes. Just weigh them every 30 min or so to see whether one or the other dries out faster. Smile

I think it is a neat idea, but my wife would not like 20 tape dispensers stuck to the bathroom wall.

Interesting... What made you think of that? Wrapping early x-mas gifts already?

Wink Nope. I just bought a couple of brushes and DE razors and am reconsidering my shaving routine despite I have been wetshaving for decades. Found a quick way to avoid buying a holder.

I will stick with the coat hanger inspired budget brush stand, besides they're adjustable and work better than the real deal lol!

Yup, I was planning to make a holder from a coat hanger, but I think I am done for a while. That red holder makes my bathroom look less dull.

Nice configuration of your hanger holder, by the way. Economical, simple, elegant and flexible. Good job.

Thanks, but that one isn't mine, I used a coaster and a coated hanger, sturdier and don't have to worry about it rusting. Dodgy
