I use the standard weber wire brushes.  I have used them from the beginning of my grilling hobby.  No issues.  If you keep your grates clean there should be nothing on them that a wire bristle could stick to.

I've noticed recently a lot of new high-temperature synthetic bristle brushes - some good to about 450 degrees, and some others good to 650 I think.  Been tempted, but personally I think all these brushes just tend to get gunked up lose efficiency.

I do the same and if the stuff is really baked on I used the KJ charcoal ash tool to lightly scrape the grates, the deflectors & the soap stone. Works fine as far as I am concerned.

A few years ago I saw "True stories of the Er".  Poor guy had a very tough time and it was due to a wire that broke loose while cleaning and adhered itself to the grate. It had eventually embedded in his throat.  Having worked Er and seen those wires on my grill before, that was enough for me.  Foil it is.

As I've just said elsewhere, I watched the cooks at Waffle House cleaning things with wadded-up pieces of leftover aluminum foil.  Turns out it works great.  Gets the residue off, and doesn't scratch anything.  Plastic scrubbers and Brill-O® Pads also work well.  Or, ScotchBrite® pads.  Really, almost anything that you'll find in the proper aisle at the grocery store.  Just thoroughly wash the soap off, if any, and wipe dry. Be sure that air can freely circulate. (e.g. a small piece of wood to prop the lid slightly-open.)
