Any ideas how to clean a tiny tube/straw inside a child's beaker (it is one of those no spill cups with an integral straw that pops up - bought from foreign parts by SIL). I would have thought a tiny brush (about 5mm wide and 6cm long) would do like a Sindy sized teat brush - any ideas if such a device exists/can be bought from???
pipecleaners v good idea, or you can get the tiny brushes with the toothbrushes in big pharmacies - I used to have them for cleaning round my braces.
Get a pack of replacement heads, attach to a bit of wire and poke through.
I'm going to say what immediately popped into my head on seeing the thread title even though the suggestion has already been made some what more politely by RBH. "Cleaning a pipe? Try a bloody pipe cleaner FFS!"
Although, TBH, I find that if you run water through them after each use, they're fine. It's only if you leave them and they go manky that cleaning is a problem.
