Care for your
fine Fuller hairbrush for most years of use.
All-nylon or acrylic
brushes (both backing and bristles) can be washed in warm or

then lay on a towel with bristles up to cool and air dry before use.
Natural bristle brushes need

with natural bristles can be submerged in warm water with shampoo or
