Anyone have ideas about traveling with a shaving brush? I can't imagine tossing a wet brush into my shaving kit before heading to the airport. A plastic bag seems like a bad idea, but what works for you?
Here are some of my travel solutions.
Various travel tubes ( vented )
One of my coolest finds, those cool interlocking clear large sample size containers. I can carry a ASB and a couple of creams in one small package.
If you want to use the brush you already have. Someone here posted a while back to try using a toilet paper tube. I cut it open and used packaging tape to reinforce it. It works well. Being open on the ends helps the brush dry. You can use a blow dryer to help dry the brush if you're in a hurry.
When I get my SR-204 (CAN'T WAIT) I plan to make a nicer looking one out of white poster board and clear packing tape. I'll try to post pics when I do.
Muehle-Pinsel has a very nice best badger travel brush in a sort of tube... I dries without problem in the open metal-case. I have used mine on many trips and so far no problems at all. Its a bit small but it gets the job done. Comes in nice colors too
Use the $8.00 Omega Syntex brush.
Its nylon tufts dry very quickly; it is almost indestructible and lathers beautifully.
IMHO it makes the ideal travel brush.
A pill box makes a handy container, you can drill a few holes in the bottom of the box, where the base of the brush will rest, to help shorten the drying time, but with the Syntex it is not necessary: it dries quickly and nylon is impervious to water damage anyway!
Keep an eye out for various "disposable tubes." I found one that would fit my Chubby 3 at Target. It was holding some hair tie's but I gave my wife the hair tie and kept the tube for my brush. Cost me a whopping $1!
