Reading this thread http://shavenook.com/thread-brush-soaking-thoughts got me to wondering.

Do extended brush soak times shorten the life of a brush? I think I'm contemplating the effect of water on the glue holding the knot together, but there may also be other factors at work.

So weigh in.

Has anyone experienced shortened brush life because of long soak times?

I haven't found that, but I did find my fingers wrinkled like a prune after I'd held the brush under water for a few hours Shy

I could see it having an effect if you're soaking in very hot water. Otherwise, I would hope that the manufacturers expect their product to be in water and use appropriate materials for product longevity.

manufacturers should guarantee no loathing from brush contact of water.

otherwise it'd be like an umbrella that collapses with the contact of water

I don't think I'll ever wear out enough brushes to find out.
