Just returned from a 4 day trip. However, prior to leaving, I believed that I had everything packed. But to my dismay, upon unpacking @ the hotel, I found that I had not packed either of my brushes.
As a result, a trip was made to wallys world where a burma shave boar was purchased($ 3.99).
Now, because I have an Omega boar at home, I did not want to duplicate the "hairs gathered from the boar's behind smell" in the hotel room(much smaller- no room for the smell to dissipate) what was I to do?
Fortunately, necessity is the mother of invention-coupled with the fact that I would not need the hair conditioner( bald as I wanna be), I poured the conditoner into the sink, added hot water and the brush, and then let it soak overnight.
In the morning, I removed the brush, dried it, and emptied the sink. I then poured more hot water into my shave mug and added the brush. next, I moved on to my shower and after completion, reached for the proraso.
Laughter soon filled the room ( rather than aforementioned smell) as i realized while whipping the cream into a lather, there WAS NO SMELL!
So after your next boar brush purchase, soak first b4 using, dry and rinse thoroughly, and enjoy the lack of smell.
BTW, its now Monday (brush purchased Thursday) and still no horrid smell!
