this might help with your mya cleaning. first scrub it with dishsoap to get a lather built up and rinse it clean, then take it and plug the end (finger, clay, C4 what ever) fill it up with white vinegar and let it sit for 15-60 seconds, drain and rinse well. that will kick out 99% of smells and will give no tastes, the first time you do it or 2 it might come out green as hell though
