I tumbled some brass today and need to know the best way to get the media dust off of the brass.
Any and all tips appreciated.

Add in some brass polish and it will cut down on the dust. When media is new, I have also put in some water to moisten up the media a little to cut down on the dust.

To get the dust off, I use a simple towel to wipe them down, then spray with lube and size them.

This is the best way. Once media starts to get dirty throw a dryer sheet in to clean up the media and gather the dust. It may take a few sheets. I use the cheapest ones I can find at the dollar store.

^^^ That too. I've even thrown in a damp paper towel to help cut down on the dust. If you add in some brass polish or some media polish, it will treat the media, and almost eliminate the dust factor, plus polish the cases better. I add in a generous amount of polish about every other tumble.

I use the dust removal process as an opportunity to inspect the cases, so it's just me, the brass, a few paper towels and something to binge watch on netflix.
