Hey amakarevic,
The best thing you can do with that brush is light it and use it as a torch. Have you ever heard anyone cleaning one before? I haven't. Throw it out. If you were to get it clean again, the only thing it would be good for is applying contact cement.

Toss it......any cleaners used to clean contact cement will basically wilt the bristles and make them useless........unless someone knows a secret I don't.
