Default Brush before the Friction Drive Roller?

A big inadequacy with my friction-drive (FD) system is the slippage, lack of friction, when the contact area is wet (because of the wet pavement).
So, I'm considering using a brush, a toilet brush maybe, to partially clean the tire before it contacts the roller.
I'm guessing it will help, and I should just rig one up. But has anybody tried this already?
