How to dissolve wood glue of a brush? Answered

After I used a brush to apply Gorilla© wood glue I forgot to clean it and, I need to know if there is a solvent that can remove the wood glue of the brush.

Nope. Gorilla Glue is a polyurethane, and it can't be dissolved with any solvent you can legally get off the shelf....

Yep to what he said. Next time use a cheap brush.

+1 Short of re-bristling your brush with gorilla hair, I think you're out of luck.

True Gorilla wood glue can't be dissolved, but it can be loosened. Just run the brush over very hot water until the glue goes back to the creamy white. Then start peeling. I've done it so often when making my wood projects it works every time.

Sorry but I don't think there is anything you can do.
