All you need to create a teased hairstyle is a can of hairspray and a hairbrush. However, teasing may cause irreparable hair breakage and leave strands of hair in the sink basin. In addition, the process of untangling your hair can damage delicate strands if not done properly. Keep both the bathroom and your hair looking good with the proper cleanup.

Step 1

Wipe the inside and outside of the sink basin with a damp paper towel to remove strands of hair that fell out during the teasing process.

Step 2

Dampen a lint-free cloth with lukewarm water and wipe the inside and outside of the sink basin with the cloth. This will remove hairspray residue off the surface.

Step 3

Spray window cleaner on a lint-free cloth and wipe the mirror to remove hairspray residue. Let the mirror air dry.
