Actually I wash mine after every use and wipe dry with the paper towel. I hate using dirty bits on my horses.

I boil mine in water and apple juice. I don't know about the dishwasher because I wouldn't want any of that soap staying on the bit.

I should be embarrassed to admit this but I swish mine around in the stock tank after a ride I bring them all in a few times a year and give them a good polish

I actually did the same before I got my horses. But after I did - OMG! I wash the pads, clean the bits every time etc. But frankly my paint may try to spit out the dirty bit. And it takes me just 30 secs to clean it, so not a big deal.

I don't think that's a worry as most/all dishwashers have rinse. Do you usually find left over soap on your dishes?

I soak mine in hot water for an hour or two, then scrub with toothpaste and a toothbrush.

I also do the dishwasher about once a month, works really well. Inbetween I wipe it down after every ride.
