If you have a water glass with a straw, using a Q-tip will help clean the straw, the place where the straw goes and the mouth piece. It is the perfect size for mine. Of course it does depends on the size. You can also use a chopstick to push the Q-tip through the straw to clean all the way down.

I have many cake decorator tips and sometimes even 2 or 3 of the SAME tip because I use them that often! It is VERY HARD TO SEE the numbers imprinted on each tip so,when I get a new tip I label it with my labelmaker from Brother. It saves time when trying to locate a tip and it can make it through the dishwasher in a special bag for tips [although I hand wash them ,too! I use the dishwasher to sterilize it even more!]. If the label does fade, I use a permanent marker to relabel it.
Additional tips of the same number I label as back-up tip #2, 3 or whatever number it is.
