Hey. I've been bending strings for a little while now and was just noticing that when you release the bend/bring the string back into place, the other strings that were pushed out of the way also snap back and vibrate/I knock them. I try to mute them and be more careful, but it keeps happening. Am I just being clumsy? Does it just take more practice? Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Everything get's better by practice - also bending.
I experience the same sometimes, and what I do is to bend up, and then bend a little down, and then let the strings fall back to place when they're no longer in touch with the other strings.
That process has to be done a little fast, and that's where the practice comes in again
I'm also working on it Have fun!

The muting must come from your picking hand my friend, so practise this. Slowly, fret the E note on the 2nd string, (B) on the 17th fret. Then, proceed to bend the note from the 15th fret, D note up to the E. But, this is the important bit, while bending down, slowly move your picking along with the motion. This will inherently mute the strings that have been collided with from the initial bend. The picking will automatically role with the bend as it retracts to its original D note.

This will come with a little practise.
