I am relatively new to wet shaving and have a question about brushes. I have started to use a scuttle and soak by brush in very hot water while I shower. The water is not boiling - but probably at just below the simmer point when I first put the brush in to soak. Can too hot of water harm the brush? I have really liked the warm lather a scuttle has been providing me in the morning. But I just have been worried that I might cause damage with too hot of water.
Any insight would be appreciated.
