I remember getting the pipe-cleaner type of hub-shiners for my childrens bikes in England in the early 1980s and still have a couple of sets on two of my bikes, but I haven't seen them on sale for years!
I always liked hub-shiners and this pipe=cleaner type in particular, but now I have to make my own out of strips of leather joined with Chicago screws.
