Be more hairs in your paint than my missus leaves in the plug hole 😄😄
That is the worst mentality ever. This is why the planet is on its last legs. Use and throw?! How about use and reuse? You are the reason why your kids will not get to see the nature you used to see. Cold!!!
At least spend the extra few quid and get some Harris brushes, or you'll be picking bristles off the wall all day long
Bought them, not for painting mind, for detailing the car (these get into the places that a microfibre cloth can't ... you then simply vacuum up the dust, dirt and bristles ... happy days!

You gotta be a right tight @rs5 if you buy brushes this cheap for decorating purposes, whoever buys these probably water the Paint down aswell.

Hahahahaha. First laugh out loud in nearly a week.
Hi there. I gave this heat because it IS a good deal but I'm not too keen on the idea of disposable brushes. I'm certainly no Eco warrior but this does seem wasteful. This is NOT a jab at you.

Agreed. What's the alternatives? Turps, spirits, processed (ie. tap) water? Cleaning brushes isn't good for the environment either. Again, not taking a jab at anyone, I just don't know the answer
I used to C&C at Screwfix but since I discovered that toolstation offer FREE Parceforce 24 delivery on orders over a tenner i haven't been back to screwfix. They stick to their promises as well - state any order received by 8PM gets delivered the next working day. I decided to test them out and made my last order (14 odd pounds) at 7.59PM. Guess what? With me next day by Noon. Top top company.

Water based gloss paint alternatives are available. Then its no problem cleaning the brushes using water, and not turps. YMMV

Indeed plus your paint won't go yellow within a month with using a water based one

I dont think the deal poster named them "use and throw" that was the manufacturers choice.

I get your point re recycling but maybe try being a little kinder with the words, it probably prooves more effective.

Okay. I’ll try to be kinder with words. Because words indeed damage the planet. Not this use and throw mentality. It’s the words. I’ll make sure i go and ‘tell’ nature kind words to save it. You go ahead and keep doing the same. Buy and throw. Good job! Can’t believe i am having arguments on HUKD. I think i need to rethink my life a bit. Advise
All of you to re-think yours.
Thanks
haven;t even read the comments i just saw the original post, i'm a painter and decorator and trust me when i say this is a couple of quid you are as well setting fire to, these brushes will be crap, end of

A few pennies more buys halfld decent brushes that can be washed out after using and will still be useable years down the line with the added bonus off being able to cut a straight line, u wont be able to with these

Synthetic brushes rather than natural are the way to go nowadays for all the water based paints, no hair loss equals better job

Didn’t know this - thx
Fine for something like an old shed or fence, but as in previous comments pay the extra for Harris and get a good finish if it is anything you want to look right.

Because the quality of the brush would not allow them to be reused.
the poor unfortunate that make these must pay to work. Cost of materials, plus manufacturing , plus shipping, plus Toolstation profit margin. It does not add up.
markoUK07/07/2019 18:19

So how about we don’t buy that? How about ask a friend for a set. I know at least 3 people that have very good used brushes in a shed somewhere that were used a couple times only. Use those, socialise a bit and not buy stuff to throw away. We need to stop promoting destructive behaviours like this. Of course companies will push stuff like this in our faces if we keep promoting them and buying them.

Bit of a hairy fanjita - nasty?

Maybe you can collect a load of hairs and make your own fanjita-brush set then - save the planet!

Ewwwww lol.

I wonder if there is a market for said brushs. Different colours and textures / straight or curly available. Head brush also available.

Use a bar of soap. Works with most paints and everykind ive used.

When you buy new brushes use them dry on a wall to help remove most of the loose bristles.

I really dont understand why the bristles cant be secured / glued in properly in modern brushes.

Manufacturers should supply info with all brushs saying to use dry on a wall etc first.

Thanks. I was more making a general point about the state of recycling and this era where we're trying to determine the right thing to do.

Very happy to have the soap tip, I tend to use brushes like this with linseed oil and the like on garden furniture. Will try the soap trick, thanks

Yes plastic waste and recycling needs to be sorted out. Councils need more funding to sort out recycling and to stop dumping.

No problem.
Remove as much of the paint on the side of the tin then on newspaper et

A soap bar and a bit of water in a cut open bottle is what i do for oil based paint then it becomes like a gel then i bag it up and take it to a proper disposal/recycle place.

I use paint pads for interior walls etc with water based paint.

If your going to paint again the next day. Store the brushes in well wrapped bag.

Your supposed to water some paints down. Some cheap brushs are ok if made properly and you use dry first to remove loose bristles.

We are? By what concentration would you say? And how do plastic particles remain airbourne?
There was a tv show about it. They did experimin houses. Its also in air outside as well.

Small particles of metal are airborne and as plastc is lighter then you can see the issue. They come from polyester clothing. Fleeces waterproof clothing etc

Whats its doing to us is not understood yet. The rise in asma may be linked to it though or simply the air quality.
Is it a pound. Difference is cost if you get the same sizes etc.
Id say the poundland ones are better going by the raiting of these.
