Because it has a million little crannies and crevices, getting the tough to reach spots can sometimes be a huge chore. However, Target, Bed, Bath and Beyond as well as multiple other stores that carry household supplies, carry a variety of water bottle clean sets. These kits have several little wands that are small enough to fit in any food processor crack.
