    I came across a box of pipe cleaners the other day while rummaging around in the make-up drawers at my local Rep Club. (I think they may have been there as whiskers for some play that had animal characters.) I absent mindedly shoved one right into my clearo and was amazed that when I pulled it out it was no longer white but mostly grey.

    I've been using a bowl of hot water with a dash of dish detergent to clean my clearos, they soak for a few minutes then I shake them around blocking off the ends with my fingers and rinse them well in cold water. I don't do that to the coils they get flushed with hot water, considering I have el cheapo stuff and nothing's broken yet, I figure it works. I am however going to invest in a bag of pipe cleaners to help make sure I get all the gunk out.

    These are just perfect for scrubbing out drip tips and tank parts like the chimney:

    Just got some of these which are similar but the different sizes are handy.

    Soft bristle toothbrush works really well in place of a bottle brush, you can get around almost anything with the fine bendable bristles.

    I leave my stuff to sit in a solution of water and dish soap, a little mouthwash if I want my stuff to look shiny, it helps remove flavours as well.
    Other things that remove flavour - dilute dettol solution and alcohol of any kind.
    Allow to air dry.

    Been working well for me so far.

    Someone suggested hot water rinse to me initially, but I had a big issue with seals swelling and one of my tanks seized, was a pain to get it apart.
    Some edible oil works well to lubricate after seals swell up. Q tip and olive oil going strong for me so far.
