I soak in IPA overnight, toothbrush for the cleaning and then a quick run through the ultrasonic cleaner. My IPA cleaning is meant to get the cleaning time required down to under 3 mins as more than that seems to do damage ... but that’s just my process
Doesn't a toothbrush do any damage?

No they are just nylon bristles. Mostly to agitate and take the worst off the board.
