You can get a set made by a company called Dandy which cleans them in about 20 seconds flat.
Damn brilliant they are, got mine for 19 quid on QVC
It consists of a plastic insert that goes inside most rollers and has a metal spindal on the end which you insert into the chuck of your electric drill (corded or cordless) point the thing into a cardboard box lined with a plastic bag and spin for say 10 seconds (cleans the bulk off) then you dip it in a bucket of water (the roller NOt the drill) stick the thing back in the cardboard box and spin for anther 10 seconds.
hey presto its clean.

Or you just wrap them in a plastic bag to prevent drying out and keep re-using for the same colour paint, then throw away the furry bit, retaining the cage bit for future use. Life is too short.
