I recently purchased a Semogue 1305 brush based on the good reviews it receives here on the Nook.

The first time I used it was with RR XXX soap and produced alot of lather. I soaked it for 10 -15 min. and it seemed ready to go.

This is my first boar brush so I really didn't know what to except.
What is the best way to break in this brush?
Thanks

Joe, all kidding aside, just keep using it. The more you use it, the more it will break in. The 1305 was my first boar brush and the Semogue 2000 my second. They remain two of my favorites because they have broken in so nicely. Both now have very soft tips with decent backbone. Again, just use it on a regular basis and it will break in very nicely.

Thank you. That seems easy enough.

Should the brush dry in a stand bristles down?

When I had a 1305, I'd spend the better part of a couple of weeks just lather cycling it. Make a lather, let it dry, then make another and so on and so forth. They are great brushes.

Joe,this is how I dry out my brushes,but you can put it with the bristles up too,just dry it out well with a towel before,to get rid of the water excess.

I agree I got a Semogue 830 and used it everyday for the first week. The tips have started to split, it is a permanent member of my rotation. I expect it to get better and better as time passes.

I used my Semogue 1305 about 30 days in a row, and it has broken in very nicely. Smile
