I bought this brush a while ago and loved it until recently. A few months ago I flew to Michigan for my husbands grandmas funeral and once we arrived I opened the suitcase to find a gel like material all over my clothes, dress for the funeral, his dress shoes, etc. It ruined a couple of my shirts and dress. I could not figure out where that gel material had come from. This last weekend I flew to Wyoming for my sisters college graduation. Once again, I opened my suitcase and found this gel like material all over my clothes, dresses, and husbands dress clothes. It once again ruined a couple of my sweaters and beanies. It caused a huge headache both times as we could not wear the clothes the fel got on as it stained it. This time I realized where the gel came from. It was coming from the handle of the brush. The brush was covered in the gel, and the handle of the brush was somewhat "deflated". You could clearly see that it was now missing gel. I would have never bought this brush had I known the gel material would come out of the handle, I figured it was a squishy handle, not that gel could actually come out of the top of the brush. It was leaking from the top of the handle, there are not punctures or other problems with the brush. I am EXTREMELY dissatisfied as it ruined some very expensive clothes and caused issues on some very emotional and important days. If this brush is not made to be taken on airplanes I suggest you put that on your label.
