I would imagine that a fair number of collectors out there pick up used sets that have a significant layer of dust coating them and want to clean them up for re-sale. Does anyone have some tips or tricks to do this quickly and avoid damage to the bricks? I use a tooth brush and soapy water and then rinse them in a strainer, but this is rather labor intensive and drying I have not quite perfected yet. I have tried putting them in socks tied at the top in the clothes dryer, but I have noticed some scratching on a few bricks, but not sure if the scratches were there before I dried them or not.
