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 moisturizing additives. 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, the head should be under the brush retainer in the tank.
If after cleaning the brushes, you are unable to remove any dried glues, replace brushes. 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.
If your packers have a hard time remembering to clean the brushes, have them remove them and rinse them every (or every other) time they fill the water bottle.
Brushes should be replaced every 3-5 years for best results.
We're currently experiencing a low supply of these brushes which has resulted in higher demand. We've limited the amount you can purchase to 1 per order per customer. Call for further details.
