When I get a new brush I give the brush a good shampooing followed by a thorough rinse. I then use a cheap cream (I use palmolive) to really clean the brush by massaging it into the hair, rinse again and use. I'd use a bowl if you're not...
[SIZE="1"]Ah... You can't beat the cold steel and the badger. All this electrical rubbish, little wheels spinning around all over the place for callow youths and peach fluff, Not for a man's beard. Razor blades for men! I think we'll have this on number 9. If you're going to have a shave have a close one!
