    Hi guys.
    Okay my second brush related post.... I do like a good brush!

    Do any of you guys clean your brush to get all the unthinkables off it?

    Looked at my brush tonight and it looks like it's been out for a really bad night on the town!

    What's the general rule of thumb?

    Cheers Jason!

    I just add a little flash floor liquid to some pure water and let it soak over night, then give it a good rinse out in the morning.

    Good qu. My brush today looks naff, end of bristles all grey, was cleaning bungalows that I usually trad, so don't know if it's anything to do with that.

    Soak it in pure, use a dog comb (the metal one) the next morning and give it a fierce shake and flick to get out any last remaining dirt etc
