Acrylic brushes are used to apply acrylics to the nails. These brushes are often used by nail technicians in nail salons, as well as those doing nails at home. Whether the brushes are used for personal or professional use, these tools need to be cleaned regularly to prevent residue from drying onto the brushes, which can cause irreparable damage if not properly remedied. Cleaning acrylic nail brushes is a fairly easy task.
Things You'll Need
- Liquid dish soap
Fill a small dish with clean monomer.
Place the brushes in the monomer, and let them soak for one hour.
Remove the brushes, and rinse with hot water. Rub a drop of liquid dish soap into the brushes if the brushes have lost their form. Let sit for 48 hours.
Rinse the brushes with hot water, allow to air dry, and place in a fresh dish of monomer to soak for two hours.
Take the brushes out of the monomer. They are now clean and ready for use again.
