To try and figure out how high the water rises when the brush is upside down (like on a brush tree) :lol: But one would have to estimate quite a few parameters (like average interspacing between fibres for ex., and also approximate the shape of said spacing to a tube, etc.) so the result will most likely not be accurate at all.

I say it is best to leave them upside down while they are still noticeably wet, then if you are worried about trapped vapour, turn it 90 degrees, although fluffing it every now and then is probably the best way to take care of this. There’s not much we can do about capillarity, some water is bound to head towards the glue no matter what direction the brush is in so, like you say, washing as little and as carefully as possible is the best we can do.

But I still firmly oppose to drying them head side up :lol:


A non-brush junkie reading this thread would most likely think we are absolutely bonkers discussing this bahahaha! :laughing-rolling: :confusion-seeingstars: :laughing-rollingred: :laughing-rollingyellow: :obscene-drinkingdrunk: :obscene-hanged:

Thanks gatos, that makes sense. BTW, we brush junkies are not the only ones discussing this. I just happened to come across the same discussion by guys about their shaving brushes! The parallel is very funny, indeed! http://badgerandblade.com/vb/archive/in ... 28051.html

I like this comment the best.
"Has anyone asked a real badger how he dries himself?
I think they just give a good shake then do NOT hang themselves upside down." :laughing-rolling: :lol: :clap:
