How do I clean mesh drain inserts?


I have mesh drain inserts that I clean daily but small particles build up that can't be knocked/rinsed out. I've tried using a toothbrush and that helps some. I'm looking for a way to keep them completely clean or do you recommend a different type of insert? Thank you in advance.

    Yes dishwasher is great. I have an extra set so I always have a clean set ready for use. You really don't need to put in dishwasher that often if you keep the inserts rinsed Off.

      I'm the dishwasher. They are rinsed off after each use but tiny particles stick in the mesh despite rinsing, banging them on a paper towel before rinsing to get stuff out. Thank you though!

    Hi Ohiorn: Try soaking them overnight in vinegar. That should get rid of the mineral deposits. Then wash in soap and warm water. That should do it. Good luck
