As you can see there are many ways to clean brass. For me the tumbler seems to be the easiest. Having to wash then rinse then dry just seems to take too much time to me. I tumble. It takes me maybe three minutes to load the tumbler and unload it. While it's running I am sitting in front of the press loading ammo. As soon as it comes out of the tumbler it's ready to load.
I don't ever remember being absent minded.
