Brush protectors

Posted by Paul on 23 May 2009, 19:07

My son came up with this. As the brushes usaully come with a clear plastic tube to protect the bristles, but it tends to be thin and a pain to put back after use without ocasionally bending the odd bristle back, or if they get dropped they tend to be hard to find, being clear and all. The `new´method is using cut to length drinking straws. Color coded . Neat eh?

Hi Paul,
I bought brushes with protection straws.
But when the broke or disappeared I used drinking straws like you do.
