Mrs Hinch Shares Hairbrush Cleaning Hack
Hey, if it means our tresses will look as fabulous as those of the Essex Insta-star, we're on board.
Plus, Mrs Hinch was a hairdresser before she became a cleaning sensation, so she certainly has all the hair and beauty know-how.
We'll freely admit that as we watched the cleaning fanatic talk her 3.3 million Instagram followers through her brush-cleaning routine, we felt a small pang of guilt over our own hair grooming tools.
From hair-covered bristles to daily grime, brushes can quickly become clogged with dirt and grime - and it's fair to say that we haven't shown ours some TLC in a while.
All of which means we're managing to comb a whole lot of gunk through our hair every day.
So, without further ado, we're taking our cue from Mrs Hinch and doing a spot of hair brush spring-cleaning in lockdown.
You will need:
- Your brush, tangle teaser, hair clasps - whichever hair grooming tool you want to give a good old clean!
- Washing up liquid
- White vinegar
- Hot (but not boiling water)
1. Mrs Hinch advises to first remove all the hair from your brushes by brushing them thoroughly with a comb.
2. Next, pop all your brushes in the sink and covers them with hot (but not boiling) water.
3. Now add one tablespoon of washing up liquid and one tablespoon of white vinegar. The Hinch-meister says this combo will kills any bacteria and germs that are clogged in your brushes.
4. Leave your brushes to soak in their soapy bath for one hour.
5. Once the time is up, simply rinse all the discoloured water away (eww!) and leave your brushes to dry on a towel.
Hey presto, clean and hygenic hair brushes that are good as new.
All hail The Hinch!
