For the brush part/ bristles themselves, I would strike a metal curry against it. For the leather back, once it gets pretty dirty I would end up wiping it down with a damp cloth and then conditioning it with a leather product, such as neatsfoot oil or saddle soap.

Is there any particular reason why you would like such an expensive, fancy brush?

Very pretty brush!!!

I think you must use a soap and a conditioner for leather.

I don't need them I just really like them and my old brushes are getting to where they need to be replaced. Its just a luxury thing. Thanks for the advice. I was just worried about the leather getting soap and water on them and drying out.

Initially give the bristles a real good scrape over the teeth of a metal curry comb, this will remove most of the dirt.

Then use warm water to which you've added a little shampoo and dip the ends of the brush in the mixture, then rub them with your hand, repeat until all the bristles are clean. Rinse and then rub some glycerine into the back of the brush. Remember that you do need the backs to remain stiff though otherwise the brush can't do its job.

I've a few leather backed brushes and I will be honest in saying they go inthe bucket with the others, get dunked and washed and have always been OK.

When they need cleaning I just wet the bristles in hand hot water and soap then scrub against another brush. Hold the bristles under a running tap to get rid of the soap. Allow to dry and then you can saddle soap the top.

Personally I do not like these brushes as the bristles go very soft after a while.
