I thought a mention of this product might be of use. M/T is a horse shampoo/conditioner formulated to remove all the accumulated sweat,dirt,urine,road apples, fly spray AND accumulated soap residues a horse accumulates. It also will not cause colour fade and is an excellent conditioner.
When this first came out the horsey girls used it on themselves and it quickly became so popular beauticians were buying out tack and feedstore supplies.
If you have a vintage brush this is an excellent product. I used it on several highly collectable horse hair Jaquimas in the old Southwest Museum collection that wound up at the Autry.

I have the sense that a lot of kav's posts are tongue in cheek

This is a jaquima rig with braided leather bosal, horsehair mecate and leather headstall.
The pieces I restored for display were made by famed maker Joe Mora and others.
I have a degree in Archaeology partly funded by working on a cattle ranch, packing mules and driving the stagecoach at Knott's Berry Farm.
The now closed Southwest Museum contacted me BECAUSE I had the skills of a horseman and trained museum curator after volunteering at the Natural History Museum.
But don't let that influence your decision to restore a future acquisition with whatever.

I've used the product before on my boar and horsehair brushes. Worked well enough but one must make sure to rinse the knot thoroughly.

My significant other is an artist and gave me a few brush cleaning soaps that she uses with her kolinski and sable brushes. Works even better than shampoo and is far easier to rinse off the knot.

Sorry kav I wasn't questioning your knowledge.

I quite enjoy reading your posts. Sometimes I have a hard time telling when the facts end and the jest begins

I haven't it on a brush before, but am very aware of is extreme popularity among women and beauty salons. Caused quite the word-of-mouth sensation some years back when it first began making waves in the beauty-product world. I even recall my wife giving it a try.

AFIK, its quick rise to near cult-like popularity began primarily by word of mouth -- women talking to their friends, beauty salons picking up on it and telling customers/clients... women in the publishing world picking up on it and mentioning it women's magazines... segments on women's talk shows... and so on.

In other words, I believe its reputation was given birth primarily in conversational and media circles primarily frequented women.

Also -- and I say this a bit tongue-in-cheek, when it comes to beauty/fashion, overall I think women tend to be much more willing to take bold/adventurous risks. (I don't know many guys who'd have the cojones to be seen in the sport club shower room rubbing horse shampoo on their head.)

So, it's not to say men won't like it. I suspect they're just far less likely to have heard about it, or given it serious consideration.
