[Homeroast] Brushes for a grinder

Car parts stores usually have a variety of stiff brushes for cleaning car parts. You might want to check it out and see if there’s something you can use.

I really wouldn’t worry about food grade materials. There’s nothing that you’ll transfer from the brush to the grinder just by sweeping out grinds.

All the grinder and pastry brushes I have found in cooking stores and coffee shops are too soft and floppy to do the job.  Many are also very flimsy with bristles that come out each time I use them.  I’ve found some paint brushes that would probably work well, but I am sure the materials aren’t food grade and am hesitant to use them.  Has anyone found a brush that is stiff enough to sweep all the loose grounds out of a grinder, sturdy enough to hang onto its bristles, and made of food grade materials?
