Buy cheapies and dump them, it saves on the fumes.

   Jar with a screw on cap. Make a hole in the cap so that the brush handle is a tight fit and the bristles are not touching
   the bottom of the jar ( stops them from curling up ). Fill with enough sanding sealer to cover bristles. No need to clean
   brush and it stays soft and ready for use next time.

   I have used this method for years with the same brush. Thinners could also be used in place of sanding sealer. Just top
   up with either when necessary.
