1. Bang the head of the brush against a solid surface to knock off any large chunks of food. Be careful not to hit the metal coils themselves, or you might squish them.
  2. Fill a bucket with enough water to cover the brush’s head and add just a few drops of mild, grease-fighting dish washing soap. There should be enough room in the bucket to swish the brush around freely.
  3. Move the brush back and forth in the water rapidly to create suds and clean all the small spaces.
  4. Allow the brush to soak for several minutes.
  5. Thoroughly and vigorously rinse the brush under running water.
  6. Allow the brush to air dry. Hang it or place it brush-side down to allow moisture to drip off.
