Getting cinnamon out

I was cooking with cinnamon the other week and ground it fresh using my bullet... Well, now I can't get the cinnamon dust out of the cup... Obviously water didn't work, I put it in the dishwasher, I scrubbed it with soap... :/ I don't know what else to do and I can't find ANY info anywhere on how to get it out... Please tell me it's possible?!

Try grinding some kosher salt in it.

I was going to suggest grinding rice. That's the standard way of cleaning a coffee grinder after grinding spices.

Another suggestion would be grinding fresh bread in it. The cinnamon will stick to the bread. Try all the suggestions. Eventually, something will work.

We have a small electric coffee grinder that's delegated to only grinding spices, etc. When I finish using it, I run some saltine crackers through it, which has always been effective. You might try that.

Interesting. Four replies, each with a different suggestion.

Try them all and buy a new grinder for other purposes than spices.

Yep. Have a dedicated Bullet cup for spices and coffee.

Things like those have oils that are hard to get rid of.
