Wet blankets? Not our mushrooms. They're fun guys. Mushrooms, especially the wild-foraged ones with all of the nooks and crannies we love so dearly, are like little sponges. They'll suck up any moisture they're presented with and can easily get waterlogged which then makes them soggy in the pan and slimy in the fridge (ugh). Instead of running them under the faucet we recommend using this mushroom brush. With its perfectly palm-sized rounded handle and delicate-yet-firm horsehair bristles, this hand-held bristle brush is the perfect tool for brushing dirt, soil, and debris from the delicate skins of your favorite fungi.
Take Care: With a bit of easy maintenance, this brush can last for years. Clean the bristles with plain water or the soap of your choosing, shake out excess water, and allow brush to dry with the bristles down. Occasionally oil the wood with your preferred wood conditioner (we swear by Old Mill's All Natural Beeswax and Mineral Oil Wood Polish, available right here at The Foundry), being sure to allow enough time for the wood to absorb the oil before its next use.
