Fly masks and velcro

Anyone have an idea that works for cleaning out the velcro on fly masks or guardian masks? My horse is a roller and between the dead grass, twigs and shedding hair, the vlecor is loosing its "vel".... I have tried a toothpick and a straight pin. There has to be a secret to this....

I just wash the whole thing with warm water and use a harsh scrubbing brush on the velcro to get rid of all that dirt then when it drys its gets its "vel" back :)

Use a brush like this ( Redirect Notice ) after washing the velcro.

We use a mini/cat furminator brush. Works like a charm!

You used to be able to buy a gadget called a 'Velcleaner' over here - basically a wire brush with specifically-angled bristles.

Might be worth a web search.
