Ok you would want to use vinegar or lemon juice then on a cotton swab or if that does not work use an old toothbrush you are ok with throwing away after. Then after that dries clean it again with a cotton swab and a tiny bit of warm water. Let it dry and then after that you can test. If this did not work please come back and let me know by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue. If it did work please don’t forget to leave a positive rating it is greatly appreciated.
