After using the brush with sweets I allways wash the brush with WD 40 to remove the sweets
for storage to save the brush.
I use sweets only when I have a badly fouled barrel and once it starts coming clean I switch to
a milder solvent like Butches or Bore tec and after a good brushing I switch to a cotton swab
to apply the bore solvent and then if it doesent come clean(Some copper is still present) I use the brush again.
I use the cotton swabs and nickel plated jags on most barrels with good results.
