Liquid Solvent

I was taught not to dip a dirty bore brush back into a solvent bottle as it would contaminate the solvent. Now I was told that's not true, the crud, burnt powder and copper/lead de[posies just settle to the bottom with put harm. Do you buy that?

Quite a sizable amount of reactant (assuming there is any meaningful reaction), would be required to neutralize the chemicals and quantity of said typically used in bore solvents.

I wouldn't worry about it.
