buckle brush? anyone?

There are some historical references to buckle brushes which were basically made out of glass rods (I think) and cotton wads (I know). Anyone have one/ made one / know how to make one / have a picture of one? I need one as the process I'm using is so sensitive that it seems to contaminate the brush each time I use it.
conversely I might ask the same question saying that I want to do salt prints but I do NOT want to dip them in a vat of silver nitrate, I want to brush the silver nitrate on the surface. I believe the dedicated brush that I've been using has been the contaminating agent. I"m pretty sure this is the case because the first couple of prints are fine and over time, with exactly the same process I get contamination issues. Any OTHER suggestions?
Thanks for this, I know someone else out there has managed to best this problem before.
