Run under tap, run fingers through it to flick dirt off and soak in bucket of pure overnight

I find them easier to clean when dry. Just pick the bits out of the stock and run fingers through the bristles.

 

When wet, I do pretty much the same as Clisty but I don’t soak them. If they are really bad after picking the clumped bits out I just put some pure in a plastic washing up bowl and give the brush a good rinsing and watch the bits drop out. Again I don’t try and get everything out. After all, when cleaning windows it’s the rinsing after the agitation that’s key to a good finish

 

Flocked brushes collect more muck and therefore require a little more attention

I'll only soak if really filthy, otherwise just tend to run hand through it every couple of jobs

Dog grooming comb

On a similar vain, I asked my 

mates sister (West Indian and well fit) if she had a spare Afro comb. 

When I told her what it was for, she found it funny, but it works 👍

Don't think I've ever cleaned a brush, just use it on the next window and it cleans itself.

Is this a flocked brush ? They are difficult to get the dirt out of let it dry then rub your hand over it and the bits will usualy fly out

I have days when only use flock brush, yes they hold more debris but a flick with you hand every few windows and all is ok again.

I find my brush picks up a ton of dirt following high winds as it deposits a load of muck on the windows and frames. The muck also gets caught up in cobwebs which then end up in my brush. That’s when I mainly have to clean my brush. During most everyday use on maintenance work they don’t require a lot of cleaning if any
