Thanks

I am also interested to know more on how to properly use it.

Just brush your suits, etc. after wearing. The softer side is the one with white bristles, which Kent recommends for use on cashmere.

Mine is black on both sides: http://www.kentbrushes.com/shopexd.asp?id=51&catid=49 I cannot feel any difference in stiffness on the two sides either, and they both seem to be very tough on cloths.

The double sided brush I have is black on both sides. There is definitely a difference in texture. They can be (and should be) used on wool cloth. You don't have to scrub, just brush. The bristles are surprisingly gentle. Just don't brush too hard. See Will's excellent posts:

and

I also have a cashmere brush that has some white bristles on it that I use on my cashmere coat.
