RE: tortillon question

I have my students wrap Scotch blue masking tape around them to keep
them clean looking and peel off enough tapes as needed to re-sharpen.
The tape also serves as a support for the smaller sized ones.
Additionally, I only purchase the solid ones because the hollow ones
unfortunately can't be re-pointed very often.

I have shown my students how to clean them using their sanding blocks
it has worked without too many problems.
