I soak all of our combs and brushes in an plastic 3 quart measure, in hot water and a healthy squirt of shampoo once a month. Before putting the brushes into the soapy water I use a rat tailed comb to clean the hair out, then a hair pick - finally I use an old, well used denture cleaning brush to scrub between the bristle to get the last of the hair and any built up dander plus to scrub the combs with. Then I let them all soak for a couple of hours, drain, rinse in hat water, then add about 1/8 cup of hibiclens to  2.5 qts of hot water and soak it all for 15 to 30 minutes. Remove combs and brushes, rinse in hot water, then lay on dry cloth to dry.

I do the same with the cats combs and brushes. Yep, I have two styles of brushes for the cats and two combs. One of the combs is a nit comb - it is the easiest way to look for fleas.

:D  I think a lot of helpful hints we share here are answers to first-world problems. Yeah, we're all very blessed, & I'm blessed to have a hairbrush at all. And to have hair. 8)
