I have got a 5 string bass. What is the proper way to mute the B and E strings so it won't sound when playing the A, D or G strings. Especially when Slapping.

I currently use my left hand thumb to mute the B string but I read an article saying that is not the proper way of doing it.

Please help. Thanks and God bless,
