- Dec 19 11:32 AMThanks for the tips guys. I'll try and clean the brushes and hopefully they can be resurrected. They actually don't look too bad, just a little crispy. We'll see... I may be asking you guys for resources for new brushes!

Even natural bristles might be more easily cleaned with hot water and a paintbrush comb from the hardware store (that is all I needed with my used synthhetic bristle processor), but that won't get all the way down to the base of the bristle.
