    I just wash it out with soapy water right after I use it.
    Use dish soap. It cuts through the hard to wash off oils of hoof dressings the best.

    My hoof conditioner comes in a spray bottle, so no mess!

    I don't... I put the head of the brush into a folded empty toilet paper roll after I'm done using it so that it doesn't make anything in my grooming box dirty and that's it. I make sure my horse's hooves are clean when I put the grease on and that I never drop the brush on the ground where dust, wood shavings etc. could stick on it so it never gets really messy, just greasy. I don't ever use the brush for anything else but hooves so I don't really see why I would want it clean if I'm going to make it dirty tomorrow again. But if I really needed to clean it for whatever reason, I'd use the dish soap as somebody suggested, it gets rid of grease quite easily.

    I have the Hooflex conditioner in the liquid bottle that the lid is the brush. So that one I obviously don't clean.

    But I also have Hooflex in the more pasty solid form, in which I have a separate brush for, and that's the one I keep washed so as not to get everything oily and disgusting.

    Years ago I had a stiff paint brush I would use & when I was done, I would put it in a small plastic baggy. Kept it moist and kept crud from clinging to the bristles. Don't think I ever washed it, because you're just using it for hoof conditioner anyways, might as well keep the product on it.

    I vote for this approach
