How often do you clean your grooming kit?
I searched for another topic of similar title but nothing appeared, so I hope no one has asked this in awhile! I just washed my brushes/cleaned my kit out this afternoon and it brought the question to mind, how often do others wash theirs? I have to admit it's been a little while since I addressed mine, namely because I was using my clean/new set of brushes for some time.
Anyway, my main questions are (simply food for thought :lol:):
- How often do you clean your brushes/main equipment?
- What do you use to clean it?
- Do you have more than one set for your horse(s) and rotate your equipment or not?
- Are there some things that you're particular about cleaning more often than others?
Thanks to those who reply!!

Not often. Just when i get sick of all the dirt and hay that gets in my tote. I just scrub the tote out and rinse all the brushes really good.:wink:

I spray Lysol on everything after I use it. I only have one horse, and one set of brushes.

Well 1-2 times a year I dunk the plastic ones in a soapy bucket. I have 1 horse and one set of brushes. After I finish with a brush I scrub it up and down along the wood fence to clean it.

It gets cleaned when my lamb knocks it over.
I clean the brushes maybe once a year but I have a lot of them so they don't get too bad.

I clean my whole kit every few weeks or so. I don't use anything in particular to clean it. I clean my hoof pick, dandy brush and curry comb on a weekly basis.

I have a ton of brushes!! Have collected brushes, totes, and hoof picks for quite some time now. I rotate, but clean as often as I can remember, just did this recently actually.
There are brushes available at the barn for everyone to use, I usually dont, but once in a blue moon I do....but they clean them at least once a month since all the horses use them :D

I really don't clean mine often and then only when they really need it...like after being dropped in the mud or if a horse has girth itch or something. For mud, I just rinse it off with water. For girth itch, I soak it in bleach water overnight and then follow with a good washing in lysol (plus I have enough to start using different brushes for the horse with girth itch so it doesn't spread).
