Well I would like to announce that my carto cleaning innocence has been taken...
I had about 15-20 cartos to clean (thanks to my bff that decided while I was cleaning mine I should clean hers too. well she helped a little). I finally did it and whew it was a job. Next time I won't let them pile up!!!
I'm really hoping that they work right after they dry. I looked and looked for something I could rig up to do the taryn spin method to dry them but could not come up with anything. So I'm gonna let them stand and dry the old fashioned way. I noticed that the coffee and menthol still smelled a little so next time I will soak them in vodka. But for now I can just refill them with similar flavors.
Oh, I stood them up with the battery end up. Is that the best way to dry them (the old fashioned way) or does it matter if they lay down? I was just wonering because it was hard to get them to stay standing on the paper towels I had under them to absorb the water.
