What ever is in the potable water we use at work has really affected the performance of my brush and it needs a cleaning. I was going to use dawn but wasnt sure if it was safe...what do you guys use to clean your brushes?
It's okay to give them a "wash and a set"! I prefer using Borax, although I have not tried using a dish detergent or the vinegar rinse that Em recommended (I can't stand the smell of vinegar).

I recently out of desperation used Dawn on my trusty SMF brush and it worked like an absolute champ! Rinsing is key afterward to be sure you don't have any sudsiness left over, but it got all the hard-water residue out in short order.
You're in Alabaster aren't you? That's what your brush turns to if you don''t have a water softener!!
