A WOMAN has shared the disgusting reason why you should ALWAYS be cleaning inside your Tangle Teezer.
Cleaning fan Chloe shared a stomach-churning clip on TikTok which revealed the amount of mould build up inside the popular detangling hairbrush.
The woman admitted her friend had been using hers in the shower for three whole years and had never even washed it.
This resulted in a disgusting amount of grime and mould with Chloe showing how best to remove it – and it’s actually pretty easy.
“ANYONE WHO OWNS A TANGLE TEASER! I am still shocked about how disgusting this was!” she captioned the video.
And in it, she demonstrated first scrubbing the outside bristles with a Sonic Scrubber and Astonish Mould Remover Spray while running the brush under hot water.
She then opened the hairbrush to reveal how much mould was inside – and the entire area was completely black.
“This is a public service announcement to anyone that owns a Tangle Teezer hairbrush,” she said.
“So guys, I don’t know if you know but you can actually open these up and clean inside them – I would really recommend doing it.
“Today, this was my friend’s Tangle Teezer. She’s been using it in the shower for three years and has never cleaned inside it.
“So as you can see it was absolutely full of black mould so I’ve used some mould remover spray and a little brush just to remove it all.”
She sprayed a generous amount of cleaning product on the area and used the scrubbing brush to get it clean.
She continued the process until the entire brush was spotless.
“Guys if you’ve got one of these at home then please open it up and have a look. You’ll be so shocked,” she warned.
People who’d watched the clip certainly were shocked, with many admitting they’ve never cleaned theirs.
“I’ve had mine for five years and have never cleaned it,” one commenter shared.
And added: “Imma go clean it now.”
Few suggested chucking it out and buying a new one – which didn’t sit well with many.
But it seemed many knew the hairbrush opened and revealed they keep hair ties, bobbles or hairpins inside – which is an amazing idea.
This way, you’re forced to keep it clean and tidy and it’ll never get mouldy.
