Hi! My horses brushes haven't been cleaned in a while and I just brought all of the brushes home to clean. I have a curry comb, hard brush and hoof pick.
Ok...Are you asking how to clean brushes? There wasn't a question on your post.
I have always soaked my brushes and combs in a bucket of water, usually 3 gallons, with 2-3 teaspoons of bleach. Let them soak for an hour or so and then hose them out. If you have a garden spray attachment on your hose use the jet stream setting. It really gets the hair and dirt out of the hard and soft brushes.
^^^ Ditto, but if you have wooden handled brushes than try not to get the handles too wet. I fill my bathtub with a couple inches of water, and place the brushes brush-side down, along with some bleach and Listerine. After a while of soaking I rinse and scrub them, and then put them in front of a fan brush-side up to dry.
To keep the main dirt and dust off for a longer amount of time I just scrape them against the stall bars every now and then every time I groom.
You got good information from the others so I will say welcome to the forum :)
I use the brush end of my hoof pick to clean my curry combs and mane/tail brush. Gets the hoof pick clean too!
If your hands can't handle clorox and you don't want to fuss with rubber gloves, hot water and Dawn dish soap also works really well:D
Novalsan is also great but expensive.
Yes, dawn dish soap works well too. Just don't use too much or it can be a pain to rinse out
