For those of you who use these bullets, do you have a special method to cleaning off the messy lube?

Every 500 rounds (what I usually load in a session) I take the die plate out of my press and use Birchwood-Casey Gun Scrubber on all of the dies, and pay special attention to the bullet seating die. Star does have a white alox/mica? lube for these bullets that isn't so messy, but I have a hard time getting anything but that black gummy lube.
I also keep a towel hanging from my bench that I can use to clean my fingers during loading, keeps the cases from getting the lube on them.
