for long durability

For optimal care and longevity of your MERKUR badger hair shaving brush, there are some important tips that you should follow. We’ve summarized them for you in this article.

  • That new odor: the initial inherent odor, caused by a harmless preservative, fades away after a few applications.
  • Application: avoid pressing firmly and move the brush in lateral strokes to prevent hair breakage.
  • Cleaning and drying: rinse the brush thoroughly, shake off excess water and leave to dry in a well-ventilated place.
  • Occasional care: clean the brush occasionally with a degreasing hair shampoo to remove alkaline soap residue and prevent hair loss.


For a thorough and gentle cleaning of your MERKUR badger hair shaving brush, which is crucial for maintaining its quality and performance, you should follow these steps:

  • Regular Rinsing: After each shave, thoroughly rinse the shaving brush under warm water to remove soap residue and skin particles.
  • Gentle Shaking: Carefully shake out excess water without twisting or pulling the bristles.
  • Deep Cleaning: Once a month, gently massage with mild hair shampoo and rinse thoroughly.
  • Airy Drying: Place the brush to dry with the bristles facing downwards in a stand.
  • Bristle Care: Occasionally use a hair conditioner and rinse thoroughly afterwards.
  • Avoid Heat and Chemicals: Do not expose the brush to extreme heat or chemical cleaning agents.


Be sure to use, clean and care for your MERKUR badger hair shaving brush properly to ensure its quality and longevity.
