    Anyone know the proper way to clean a camel hair brush?

    I just acquired a couple of the old brass lipstick-style camel hair lens brushes. Before I put 'em to any of my glass I want to clean them. However, any Google search just brings up how to use a camel hair brush to clean a lens, not how to clean the brush itself.

    Anyone know? I don't see any dirt/dust, but I'm concerned with anything sticky (like skin oils, etc.) that may be on them.

    I know how to clean camel hair paintbrushes. I guess it would be the same. Just use very mild shampoo, something like baby shampoo, and then let them air dry.

    Correction ... I was thinking of Red Sable. I don't know whether that will work with camel hair or not, sorry.
