We recommend removing the tank and brushes every week or two and cleaning the brushes with a mild dish-washing detergent like Dawn or Ivory. Avoid using detergents with additives for keeping your hands soft as many of them contain oils. Rinse well and when putting the brushes back into the water tank, make sure the high points are facing in the same direction to the front of the tank. There should be a cotter pin holding the brushes together and should go under the metal retainer in the tank.
If your shipping department is not cleaning the brushes on a regular schedule, remove the take and take the brushes to the sink and rinse them out every time you fill the bottle.
If after cleaning the brushes you are unable to remove any dried glues, replace. Good brushes work only when they are able to 'scratch' into the hardened dried glues so the water can penetrate and reactivate the adhesives on the tape. If the water does not penetrate the glues, the tape will slide and not stick to the carton surface. Some companies will offer "recondition" sets but I wouldn't waste good money on a part that is so important in making tape stick.
The set of brushes include three tapered brushes held together with a cotter pin. In the event the cotter pin is removed assemble the three brushes with all the high point to the right, then put the cotter pin back in from the low side.
Brushes should be replaced every 3-5 years for best results.
