How to Use BOB KIDS™

BOB Kids brush diagram

Get to know your brush

  • Cap - keeps your bristles clean when not in use
  • Slider - slides up over bristles to allow cap to go on
  • Brush Head - powder dispenses through the middle
  • Twist to Open/Close - a simple twist of this area puts the brush in the “open” position, allowing powder to flow to the bristles. 

Directions for use

BOB KIDS™ is housed in a self-dispensing brush. When you open the brush, the powder flows through a channel inside the brush and out the head of the brush.

When you receive your brush, it will be in the “close” position. To “open” your brush, twist the blue portion of the brush that says SPF 30 to the left. When it stops, the brush is “open.” Remove the brush cap and slide the protective sleeve all the way down to uncover the brush bristles.

Hold the brush in your hand and flick your wrist until you see a spot of powder on the tips of the bristles. Apply liberally to face, neck, arms and hands, buffing in a circular motion for at least 15 seconds per small area. Parents should apply sunscreen to children until they are capable of doing a thorough job under your supervision.

After application, turn the powder cartridge back to the right to “close” the brush, slide up the sleeve over the bristles and replace the brush cap.

Cleaning your brush

All brushes need cleaning sometimes. If you brush seems full, but is not flowing well, it is probably in need of washing.

BOB KIDS is best cleaned with a brush cleaner. Spray a clean paper towel or cloth with 2-4 spritzes of brush cleaner. Make sure your brush is in the “close” position and then gently wipe the bristles on the towel until bristles look clean. Allow brush to air dry.

In the event that your brush really needs a full wash, you may use any gentle soap or shampoo. Put the brush in the “close” position and wash gently under running water, keeping the bristles pointed downwards in the water. Gently massage a little soap or shampoo into the bristles, then rinse (still pointing downwards). When the brush is completely clean, squeeze bristles, then squeeze them inside a dry cloth to remove excess water and allow brush to dry overnight on its side. Once thoroughly dry, you can use the brush again.
