    Cleaning Brushes

    For the guys who use the cycle to clean carpets how/what do you use to clean the brushes? I did a few spots on the carpet in the house and I have little carpet hairs stuck in the bristles and I cannot remove them. I will post a pic as soon as I can. Thanks!

    Re: Cleaning Brushes

    I take a razor blade and start running it throught he bristles. It glides inbetween them, doesnt hurt them, and it really pulls out all of the carpet fibers. Atleast in my experience it works great!

    Edit: I didnt know you were referring to the cyclo brush attachment. I use it for my carpet brush but the bristles should be similar... nylon probably. Same system should work for you

    Ya try the razorblade. It worked perfectly for me. I've used razorblades and box cutters. Both work. It cots the fibers and they just come out. I stumbled on this by dumb luck

    Re: Cleaning Brushes

    Well I tried out the razor blade tip tonight. Worked like a charm. Takes some time and I didnt get it 100% clean but it was amazing the crap that came out of the brushes. Thanks again for your help!
