I've always thought of them as fairly disposable, and toss them after a couple details, in lieu of washing and reusing...
for sealants or waxes I usually just label them and put them in a zip lock.
they have no abrasives so it will not scratch your paint.
At the min I would clean polishing/compounding pads after a few panels with the foam pad brush
I would say as a rule you should clean them before the next detail.
I do have customers that use pads once and then throw them out.
