E3D has been using a wire brush on their tool changer test fixture. With hardened steel nozzles (or some other abrasive resistant material) we wouldn't have to worry so much about wire brushes damaging the nozzle.
I'm not sure a non-stick (Teflon) brush would actually clean anything off the nozzle, but I could be wrong.

i dont like the idea of wire brushes, as the individual strands can break off and end up shorting a heater

Are we still looking at a capacitive leveling? If not, we may not need to keep the nozzles as clean.
