    Here's one way, as they are near the end of their soaking, I have used a toothbrush as the soft brush to scrub them:

    Hi Sylvia: I put mine in a sink of hot water, Dawn and vinegar. Maybe a bit of baking soda if they are really stuck up. Let them sit for about 10 or 15 minutes and then get a brush, like a toothbrush and clean them out. Sometimes, if there is ick in there, I use a tooth pick to clean them out. Let them dry completely, you can put them in a pillow case, one at a time, and shake and spin it around (remember when we used to make salads for a crowd like that? No? Oh, then it must be just me :) and/or my friends) and that will get the majority of the water out. One at a time so you don't clang them together.

    Good luck

    What is the burner on? Stove, furnace, grill?

    Hi! A soft bristle toothbrush will usually remove anything. Good luck!

    we use a piece of fishing line since it can be run into the hole to unclog it

    A very thin wire or strand of wire to fit in the holes to clear them.

    Get a paper clip and open it and put it in the hole and move around grease has gone in the hole

    I agree - wire or paper clip to go into the flame holes and break away and burned on goo.

    If it is a gas burner from a BBQ, then remove it, clean with a wire brush, then tip cleaners on each hole. It takes a while but is easy.

    I always take the butt end of dinner knife, and tap around the burner with it on low, and the carbon dislodges and burns off. But if its trully clogged, I would get one of those fine brass brushes about the size of a large toothbrush in the painting section of True Value Hardware store or any home store paint dept should have them.
