Just got a super badger brush (previously had the lowest grade badger). It really smells. Part of the enjoyment of shaving is the smell of the shaving cream as you apply it to your face for me. Is there any safe / non-damaging way to deodorize the brush?
And a side question, a couple of hairs came out of the brush the first time I used it. Is this normal? This is a vulfix brush, if that matters.
