Brush bath

Post by creativefunfaces on Mon Mar 21, 2016 11:59 am

Hello everyone,
I am looking at buying the Brush Bath spray, from silly farm, to clean my brushes in between customers. I can't find any thread on it, or any reviews for similar items. What do you guys use, and have you used this particular one. I am concerned with possible allergy's. The only comment I could find linked to the item, was asking for ingredients to be listed for possible allergy to product. They never responded to the question, so I don't know.
Thanks.

I like it--mostly for the fact that it shows without saying you are concerned about hygiene.

That being said, it is pricey. Would it be more cheaply done with organic baby shampoo & a drop of essential oil without paying for shipping?

i had looked up info on silly farm brush bath before and thought i found the ingredient list, but now i can't find it.
anyone have a bottle that lists them?

there are other brands of makeup brush baths, though.
the active ingredient in many cosmetic brush bath cleaners is an antibacterial, phenoxyethanol.

it is being used to replace the parabens, although according to this info, you wouldn't want to expose small children to it -

I wouldn't use any of those products when face painting. Not worth the risk. AND I am allergic to lots of things myself.

I am sensitive to the Brush Bath. Do NOT spray your brushes and the brushes and then use the brush without rinsing, because you may cause an allergic reaction if there is a child who is sensitive like me to some of the ingredients. Rinse the brushes in a two or three tank system to try to wash the residue off.

I ended up buying Pink Soap Brush Cleaner from Micheals.

I also bought a three part plastic bin for water to clean any remaining soap before using. I will only use a few drops of the soap in the first bath, and than will rinse it 3 separate times before use. I will just need to make sure I bring plenty of water with me as in trying it out I see it only takes about 10 brushes to carry over to the second pot.
