How to Clean your Dry Body Brush

So, you’ve just bought your brand new Urban Veda Ayurvedic Dry Body Brush. You’ve been using it for a month or so and are loving the results – you feel a morning transformation from a sleepy Sally to a motivated Mandy (not to mention your skin feels silky and smooth. Goodbye ingrown leg hairs.)

But you are wondering how to clean your dry body brush? It is definitely something we recommend doing to keep the vegan bristles in tip top condition.

To clean your dry body brush, please follow these steps:

  • Fill a bowl with warm water. The water level should just cover the bristles, not the wood.
  • Add three drops of tea tree oil (it has disinfectant properties).
  • Place the brush in the bowl, bristles facing downwards.
  • Move the brush around. The movement frees dead cells and dirt in the bristles.
  • Let it soak for 5-10 minutes then rinse with clean water, moving the bristles around to remove all tea tree oil.
  • Shake the brush then place it on a dry towel, bristles down to absorb excess water for a few minutes, then air dry away from sun.
  • Enjoy using your brush all over again!

For those new to dry body brushing, have a read of our other blog about the Ritual of Garshana which explains more about the internal and external benefits for the skin, lymphatic system and mental state of mind. It also gives an easy to follow breakdown of how to get the most out of your body brush and exactly how to use it.

We’d love to hear how you are getting on with your brushes, so please feel free to leave a review or email with your progress!
