Any tips on cleaning the pallette?

Yeah - don't use one? ;-)
I use a foam plate, and throw it away when I'm done or it's too messy. If I'm using lots of colors and know I'll need more blending space, I use multiple plates. Again, I'm not painting with oil so I don't know if there's a difference.

At a guess, I would say thoroughly scrape the palette and wipe the remainder with the linseed oil or mineral spirits or whatever worked on the brushes.
