I'm not sure it needs to be cleaned. I don't use a brush for that stuff, I use a needle with the eye ground in half, but it seems to evaporate completely from that tool without any cleaning.
The problem I see with using a brush is that you might get some of the actual CA glue itself in the bristles. That might need to be cleaned out, as the mix of the accelerator and the glue would harden the glue instantly, before you could wipe it out. If that happened, I would think CA debonder might be good for cleaning the brush. However, because of the possibility, that is why I would suggest a metal tool for application of the accelerator.

RauldukeThanks for the replies. I'll chalk it up as a lesson learned. It was the first time I have used accelerator, and yes I ruined a very nice brush. Mike
Try the debonder. That stuff is handy to have around. I have used it a number of times for removing parts previously glued. Then, rather than give up and trashing the brush, at least try the debonder on the brush. You are losing little- just a few drops of the debonder, at worst, if you already intended to throw the brush away anyway.
I'll make a suggestion if you want to continue to use brushes to apply acetone. Don't use paint brushes. Instead, go to a hardware store or auto supply store
and buy some "Acid Brushes". They have a rather heavy brush on a 6 inch metal handle. (I think you can buy several for a dollar or two). Trim the brush end to a point with a pair of scissors for application. (I use them for applying anti-sieze compound to the threads on spark plugs before I reinstall them in aircraft engines). Hope this helps.
