Easy Step-by-Step Guide: How Do I Clean a Nectar Collector?

1. Disassemble Your Nectar Collector

  • Carefully disassemble your nectar collector, separating the mouthpiece, body, and tip. This makes cleaning more manageable and thorough.

2. Rinse with Warm Water

  • Begin by rinsing each part with warm water. This helps loosen any residue stuck inside.

6. Rinse Thoroughly

  • After soaking, rinse each part thoroughly under warm running water. Ensure all alcohol and salt are washed away.

7. Dry Completely

  • Dry every piece with a clean cloth or let them air dry. Ensure they are dehydrated before reassembling.
