Swedish Bath Brush

$22.00

Bath brush in oak, horse hair and tampico fibre for a little extra scrubbing power. Horse hair is an excellent material in bathing brushes because it is soft and pliable while it is sturdy and durable and has a certain elasticity. Along with a good soap it gives a soft and comfortable lather for a perfect cleaning.  Allow the brush to dry standing on the horsehair so that the water is transported away from the wood that is more sensitive to moisture.

Measures:  Length 16 cm (6.3”) Width 6 cm (2.4”) Height 4 cm (1.6”)
