    Cleaning Natural Brushes

    I have 3 or 4 nice, natural bristle brushes that I spent a bit of money on and would rather not be ruined, but recently I noticed them getting really hairy and a bit disgusting. With the regular synthetic brushes I soaked them in a water and bleach combination, but thought this might dry out the natural bristles/destroy the brush. Would it? If so, what is the proper way to clean them?

    I like to use the shoe drying attachment that came with my clothes dryer. I lay my brushes on it and have it run on low heat for an hour.
