How to Clean Your Beard Comb
Now that you have all the necessary tools, it’s time to get started. Here’s how to clean your beard comb:
Start by removing any hair that is caught in the teeth of the comb. You can do this by using your fingers or a small brush.

Dip the comb into the mixture and use your fingers to work the cleanser into the bristles.
Rinse the comb thoroughly under running water.
If you see any stubborn dirt or grime, use a toothbrush to gently scrub it away.
Once the comb is clean, set it out to air dry.
