22Mar Shaving Brush and Stand
Men aspire to the perfect, smooth and nick free wet shave, leaving skin exfoliated, clean shaven and ready for the application of a favourite cologne. Of course, to achieve this, the three essential components are;
- 1. Safety razor or cartridge razor
- 2. Shaving brush and stand
- 3. Lather generating shaving cream or soap
However, to achieve the impeccable shave time after time, not only do you need to replace the razor blades regularly, your shaving brush needs attention too, keeping it in the best condition for your next shave. This involves cleaning the brush fibres and storing your shaving brush in it’s own stand.
Shaving Brush Care
Rinse your shaving brush fibres in warm water until no visible cream or soap remains, then shake or ‘flick’ the brush to expel any excess moisture. Take 30 seconds to gently comb out loose bristles and any minor tangles. These simple steps are the ideal way to prepare your shaving brush for drying.
Drying your Shaving Brush
It is highly recommended that you hang your shaving brush in a shaving brush stand. Such stands are also known as shaving brush drip stands.

Hanging your shaving brush in the upside down position will allow any remaining moisture to work downwards to the fibre ends and evaporate — regardless if your brush features real badger hair or vegan friendly synthetic fibres.
Your shaving brush will now be maintained in a dry and clean condition, in preparation for your next wet shave.
The Wilde & Harte shaving brush drip stand is the ideal way to dry and store your shaving brush between wet shaves. Manufactured from stainless steel, it offers sufficient weight to securely hold the shaving brush in place while it dries. It features a polished mirror-finish and an engraved Wilde & Harte logo.

Wilde & Harte Tip!
Once a month, we recommend you clean your shaving brush stand. This is easily achieved by wiping the stand with soapy warm water and rubbing dry with a small cotton towel or face flannel. We also suggest this be the method to maintain the mirror finish of your Wilde & Harte shaving brush handle and razor handle. This type of cleansing will not erode the engravings on your items whatsoever.
A Note About Shaving Soaps & Creams
Luxury shaving creams and shaving soaps are available from a handful of leading UK grooming brands. They are available in many traditional fragrances such as sandalwood. Typically, a 150ml tub of shaving cream (£15.00 / $20 (USD) approx.) would last six months, shaving three times a week.
