Well I have not had a chance to do much with it. It is still soaking in vinegar. I looked for a baby bottle brush, but my wife had just recently thrown then all out. I was going to do the chopstick with paper towel method, but the curve of the spout will make that impossible.

I am fairly confident that with a regular sponge I will be able to clean it out well. I do not think anything got up that far into the spout thankfully.

I was just in the tea shop today looking at new pots just in case though and to buy some delicious looking white tea.

Try string wrapped with a paper towel or aluminum foil wrapped really tight and then the paper towel around it. If you've soaked it this long with the vinegar and it hasn't come clean yet, it's time to add some baking soda.

You might try pipe cleaners or those pipe cleaner-like things found in the craft store.

GB, I'd just boil plain water until the end of time.
This is the way hospital sterilize their equipment. If you are still not sure if it is clean, invite over your mother-in-law for a cup of tea LOL

Unfortunately you can not boil water in this pot. You need to boil the water in another pot and then pour it into the pot.

I scrubbed the heck out of it after letting it soak in vinegar. I used a little soap and a lot of paper towels. I am pretty confident it is now ready for use, but I have not tried it yet. I have not had time and also an still a little nervous, but I am sure by Fri I will try it out.

GB, sorry about my ignorance.
Have you tried one of those steam producer machines (not sure how much they cost or if you get access to one), they say they clean up 99.9% of bacteria.

So interesting that you mentioned a steam cleaner. I have been wanting one for a while. It would be cheaper to just buy a new tea pot though.
