What is the best way to clean the artist's brushes used for decorating candy?

Lee - from Houston, TX

It's best to wash the brushes in hot water mixed with a drop or two of dishwashing soap, paying special attention to the bristles. Air dry the brushes.  The bristles will keep their shape and they'll last longer if you hand wash them.
