Spotlight on Baking Soda #8: Clean Combs and Brushes

  1. Remove as much hair as possible from your brushes and combs. Tip: An easy way to get hair out of a brush is to pull it out with a comb. 
  2. Fill a large mixing bowl with hot water. Dissolve about 1 tsp of baking soda in the water.
  3. Put in the combs and brushes and soak them for an hour.
  4. If the brush bristles are still a little grimy, pass a comb through it rather aggressively.
  5. If the comb is still a little grimy, use a toothbrush to scrub the teeth.
  6. Rinse with hot water.
  7. Place on a towel to air dry.
P.S. I don't use hairbrushes or combs regularly, but when I need to untangle my kinky afro I love Olivia Garden brush, and not just because the name is awesome. Ha ha! If you have 4A hair too, what kind of brush do you use?
