Rule one. One dirty mushroom dirts up the whole bag. As a forager I was looking for a nice compact brush to clean my finds. So I made my own. I have field tested this project for the last four years and it has held up nicely. Each Brushroom is uniquely hand carved and stained to reflect a Morel Mushroom. The bristles are gentle enough so it doesn't tear apart your mushrooms. Yet stiff enough to remove the dirt from your foraged finds. The bristles can also be manipulated to get in the tough cracks of certain mushrooms like Lobsters or Chanterelles. Easily fits into a pocket or bag perfect addition to any foraging kit.
