Toothbrush works. You should always take the purge valve off and the ball bearing out of it after using it so it doesn't rust or corrode. Rinse/wash them and let them sit out to dry like the rest of the Mya's parts.

I'm betting your purge and/or ball bearing is already corroded if you've been neglecting it. Replacing the ball bearing with a plastic bb should fix that easy.

I bought a big ol' jar of plastic bb's, PM me if you want a few but can't get your hands on any locally. Although if you ask around someone is bound to have some stashed away somewhere. They're cheap, but you can't just buy a few. You have to buy a few hundred or a few thousand! A small jar of them runs around $6 or $7.
