Before you begin any manual cleaning, placing your grinder in the freezer is the best way to start even if your grinder needs some serious attention. Take the grinder apart and place each piece into the freezer for more than 30 minutes to an hour. You want to leave it in just long enough for that sticky icky that often coats the inside of your grinder to freeze, making it a lot easier to clean. After freezing, put your grinder pieces back together and shake it for a minute or two then open it up and much of the herb should fall right out.
Is an acrylic grinder your tool of choice? Take it back to the basics: use water. Sounds simple, but sometimes the best option is the simplest one. Take the grinder apart before soaking, then give it a good scrub and let each piece dry completely or your next blunt might taste a little funny.
Place all grinder parts in a pot of water and bring it to a boil. Next, remove the pot from heat, and let it sit for 10 minutes. Remove the grinder parts from the pot and run a toothbrush through each to remove any leftover particles. Then just set them out to dry.
