Washing one's miswaak after gums bleeding

Q: I have sensitive gums that bleed quite frequently and I have recently started using a miswak. If my gums bleed when I brush, how do I clean the miswak of blood? Is it enough to let water run over it?

A: Just wash it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
