    I have managed to make my lens cleaning brush dirty somehow - whenever I try to brush a lens with it, it leaves an unfortunate film which has to be removed with a lens cleaning cloth. It must, I think, have come about either by my touching the head of the brush when removing it from my pocket or by blowing on it to try to get dust out of it. Either way, is it possible to clean it? If so, how?

    I am not sure what kind of brush you may have , but it is a bristle paint brush type . the fix is to repeatedly wash it with a non detergent dish washing liquid . . Then after it is dry the test is to brush a multi coated. filter with it. If you see any streaking from the brush on the filter , there is still residue in the brush . Keep repeating until there are no streaks

    It is indeed a bristle brush - natural fibres, I think. What exactly is a non-detergent dish washing liquid...? I use Fairy anti-bacterial for my dishes.
