Alcohol can be drying, so I guess that's good for quick use... But make sure to really condition when you're at home, either with actually hair conditioner, or extra virgin olive oil. Also, there's this: http://www.xsparkage.com/?p=5001

I bought a while back at Walmart a makeup brush shampoo which u could use for natural and synthetic brushes. It was around 3 bucks and it works super well and also leaves the brushes really nice and soft. as for a dry cleaner I really have no Idea, but anywayz I hope I helped somehow <3. Good Luck

I use Dr. Bronner's Tea Tree Oil Magic Castile Soap. It cleans brushes wonderfully and uses tea tree oil to keep away bacteria. I love it because you can use it to clean anything!

Either The E.L.F. Brush Cleanser and Shampoo, or the Sonia Kashuk Sponge and Brush Cleanser!

I agree w/ Britt - that stuff IS magic! It's a natural soap alternative as well, so you don't have to worry about exposing your face to bad ingredients. I use a 1/8 ratio when watering it down and putting it into a foaming cleanser bottle to conserve the amount of product wasted when cleaning brushes. It works AMAZINGLY - and I purchased a big bottle for $20 or so that I think will last me 20 years. I haven't made a dent in it! =D

I have a video on my page demonstrating how the foaming cleanser bottle helps you clean your brushes gently without having residue build up on your brushes without using the oil/soap method. [it's ok to wash oil based paints off with that method, but def. bad for your brushes IMO, oil buildup is no good for glue+ferrules...] - note that this is for deep cleaning and not for spot cleaning.

For spot cleaning, I have my trusty MAC brush cleaning spray watered down a bit to conserve product and using a spray nozzle.  =D
