I think either I am a little slow or I might be on to something... I was thinking about the best way to clean the baffles in my can and just happened to glanced over at my little ultrasonic cleaner. I dropped it in just plain water and let turned it on for 15 mins. It came out as clean as new. My Mite comes apart to clean but I thought this might be a good idea for ones that you can't dissasemble.
