I use some metal meat hooks from eBay hung from a rack in the garage with the bucket underneath to catch any drips. As soon as they are dry, rinse the bucket and dry it and then store the brushes handle first in the bucket.

To be honest it was just a thought/curiosity. Sometimes I might have a brush that's heavily soiled and I don't really want it in the wash/rinse bucket. I don't have a drive or garage so I wanted to keep them somewhere handy without dumping all the brake dust etc into the bucket.
I think I'm probably trying to make my life harded than it needs to be, lol. I think I might just buy some plastic hooks.....or.man up and keep them in the bucket.

Seem like an accessory too far. I simply have a wash bucket, rinse bucket, and a separate one for wheels with a selection of brushes inside...works for me

I put my wheel woollies upside down (handles down) in a measuring tube, all the residual liquid drips down the handles and collect at the bottom of the tube.

Yep. This is likely to be to the way I go.

For storing as using / just after - get yourself a cheap £1 bucket.

For storage - either use the bucket or if you’ve room and don’t want them sitting in the bucket, couple of thin hooks and hang them up.

One of my brushes didn’t have a hanging hook - so I drilled a 2 - 3mm hole and a small piece of kitchen / butchers string and all perfect
