Cannot wait to see your kyusu in action IPT. Took pretty long to arrive ...
a mucky one! haha...there's some black gunk buildup in the spout/screen which im trying to clean out. any suggestions would be welcome! i've been using a toothbrush to brush the screen but can't find anything to cleanout the spout bit.
its a ball filter with many holes.
Try to find a tiny bottle brush, I keep one with the teaware (which came with a hummingbird feeder) for kyusu cleaning only. You might be able to find one in a large kitchen supply store?
Maybe a Q-Tip will help. Since it is glazed, soaking in vinegar (or baking soda or bleach) should help as well. I also scraped the inside with a toothpick which broke through thick layers of scale/tea stain residue build-up.
