Grinders will eventually get filled with smaller pieces of herbs and resin. In the case that this occurs the lid of the grinder can get stuck and become difficult to work with.
Simply follow these couple of steps to get your grinder clean!
Step one: Disassemble the grinder. Begin by separating each part of your grinder.
Step two: Soak the grinder in isopropyl alcohol or bong cleaner. Place the grinder in a Ziploc bag. Fill the bag with enough isopropyl alcohol or bong cleaner to fully submerge each part of the grinder. Let the grinder soak in the cleaner for twenty to thirty minutes. Shake every couple of minutes to help break apart and residue.
Step three: Scrub the grinder. Take the grinder out of the bag and pour out any leftover cleaner. Use a stiff-bristled brush to scrub your grinder.
Step four: Rinse and dry your grinder. Use warm water to rinse your grinder. Make sure to wash away all remaining alcohol. Dry off your grinder and you are now ready to use it again!
