Default Question about the hoses inside KMs

Ok so we know there are 2 holes on the underside of the KM heart part that gets pushed down into the vase. One hole is for pulling air and the other one for the purge valve. Please note I am NOT talking about the actual big pipe stem. I cleaned these 2 holes with a pipe cleaner and successfully got the gunk out. But, is this safe? Are there 2 hoses inside coming from the adapter part down into those 2 holes? I don't want to rupture anything cleaning lol.

your good, as long as you arent using a hardened steel spike you should be fine. pipe cleaners are plenty fine. i usually just rinse them out and twist up some paper towel to wipe/dry it out
