Question Cleaning stipple brushes

I love my stipple brush. I was just wondering how you clean them. So far I have just wiped them on a baby wipe. Seems to do ok, but was wondering if I should be doing something else.

Most stipple brushes are made of horsehair which takes a long time to dry, so you may need to wait overnight after you have cleaned it - i usually just rinse until they run clear. But, It was suggest to me to not clean them but to have a brush for each color family (but that is a big expense).

I have a brush for each color, but I do clean them occasionally with warm water and a mild shampoo (since they are hair......hehe). They do take overnight to dry.

I rinse my stipple brushes in water or once in a while with a bit of shampoo.

I was told to only wet the ends and not up to the collar because that can cause the brush to "shed". I also spin the wet brush between my palms to fluff the bristles a bit as it dries. I let them dry on the edge of a table or counter so the bristles are in the air.

I saw a demo using stipple brushes on Tamp-a-tiles. That lady just pounced
them off on a terrycloth towel until they didn't give off color so that's what I do.

I have always used a little bit of Spray Stamp cleaner on mine and then a little bit of Water and a clean towel. I let them air dry.
