I have an idea, instead of bickering at each other; how about everyone turns this into positive efforts of finding the best quality brush, for the best price! ..because I would like to get a brush.
...By the way: what about those little brushes meant to clean the stylus from dust and other debris? I have one also, but resorted to use only very seldom (and very weakly).
I use it gently after I play each record. Perhaps that is too often and a bit hard on the stylus? I'm not certain.

I'm not certain.Cleaning a stylus with isopropanol should be perfectly safe, when you consider that Linn used to recommend sandpaper!!!Honestly, I'm not kidding. You could buy expensive green stuff from them and the technique was to gently drag it from back to front each side of the stylus. As far as I could make out, their green stuff was something like 1000 grit wet-and-dry.
