Got a boar brush, I think it's probably an old surry, with a slim today. I cleaned the brush with standard dish washing liquid and then did a soak in diluted vinegar for a few minutes. shampooed it and now it's setting to dry. sure lost a lot of hair. I'm wondering if it'll stop shedding or do boar brushes that sit a while tend to dry out and just become sorta no good? was lots of loose hair even in the package. Thoughts appreciated. Thanks everybody!
