I only have one set of brushes, but two days before a show I will soak them in a bucket with Pin Sol to disinfect them. This past week, I did a quick soak in the bathtub with some Dr. Bronner's peppermint castille soap, and they all came out very clean.

Soak them in a bucket of hot water and soap (horse shampoo is fine), rinse them out, and let them sun-dry. The goat hair should be fine. :)

I fill a bucket with hot water and add two capfuls of bleach. I then drop all my grooming tools in the bucket and let them soak for 5-10 minutes. I then use the hose/faucet to rinse each brush and finally I place them in the sun to dry (bristles down on brushes).
