    You can buy pipe cleaners from your LFS but I made my own.
    I bought a thin bottle cleaning brush (white plastic bristles on a twisted wire) and attached it to a flexible curtain wire using a crimp. It's about 6ft long and I just pull it through enough times to clean the inside of any pipe. If I knew how to uploadoad photos I would spend one.

    Thank you David for your reply very good idea but i managed to get one on Ebay for £3.00 which is very good it has bristle brushes both ends with the wire.
    So Thanks again Peter.
