Cleaning hairbrush

What is the best way? I try pull out hairs after each use and I keep it in a drawer to minimise dust, but it’s still ikky!
Do I let it soak in a shampoo-in-basin for a few hours or something?
I use a boar bristle brush and occasionally a wide-tooth comb.

    I just think it`s a waste to throw out a perfectly good brush when I can clean it.

    And yeah melmeko, it`s SO old! I was looking for this so I`m glad I found it again for the instructions! I have yet to use the oils though, I`m thinking I may not bother because the comb is fine – thanks so much, bexie!

    Soak in shampoo and boiling water comb out the hairs that are stuck… too easy!

    That`s a good idea. I`ll do that after combing the hair out.

    Agree with bexie – using a comb is the simplest way
