washing brushes

Okay so how do you wash your brushes. I had to wash mine because I used them on a horse that had rain rot. What do you guys do??

I actually put them in the washing machine on gentle with a horse sheet or two, then lay them out to dry. Use tide and some bleach. Come out looking brand new

In the washer with a VirKon tablet. I put a blanket or a couple sheets in with them so they don't knock around in there too much. VirKon kills all kinds of bugs, bacteria, molds and such. It is used to clean out barns, cages, and stalls and anything to do with animals where you need to steralize or just clean well. Once it dries it is non toxic to animals. I have used it to clean out horse stalls, rabbit cages, chicken barns, all kinds of things.

I soak them overnight in watered down bleach and water... then let them sit out to dry on my truck hood.
