I just got a second hand synthetic Plisson Cade Brush . How would you go about cleaning and santizing this type of brush? Thanks all...

Harry, a few simple palm-latherings should suffice. I can't see synthetic fibres needing too much cleaning. Enjoy the brush.

If you are a bit AR about such things, as I am, I'd was the brush thoroughly with a quality mild soap followed by a good soak in either Mac brush cleaner or rubbing alcohol.

Maybe just email Plisson and see what they recommend.

Good one!   Tongue   Seriously, synthetics can start to feel a bit "gummy" depending on how hard/soft the water is.  A "clarifying" shampoo (the cheap "no name" stuff works fine) can clean and sanitize very nicely.  The nice thing about synthetics is that they don't need quite as much babying as their natural hair cousins. Smile

Relax and enjoy!

Agree, I was going to use the word: 'sticky'. I washed my synthetic last evening in Dr. Bronner's soap and then soaked it in a 1:1 white vinegar and H2O solution. Big difference afterwards.

I clean mines on glycerin soaps, "lathering" them. Sometimes on dish soap too.

Or Eucalan, a Canadian-made super-mild detergent especially aimed at sink-washing silks and woolens, and which need not even be rinsed (but I usually rinse what I wash with it anyway).  As the name suggests, it is made from eucalyptus and lanolin components and somehow works in cold-to-lukewarm water without agitation, just soaking.  I use it to clean combs and hairbrushes, too.  It's kind of a miracle potion, but hard to find in stores; I purchase it from Amazon.  The user reviews of it on Amazon all are very positive.
