[Harp-L] Cleaning Plastic Comb Chromatics

It's a 25 year old Hohner C260 10 hole with a pearwood comb.  I'm getting back into the harp and it tastes sour.  I've ordered one of Brandon Power's plastic combs to replace the pearwood comb.  I know I can't clean a wood comb other than brush it out - at least I don't know how.  I like to know how to take care of it once I replace the comb.

I prefer to take a chrom apart before cleaning the inside--but as long as you play with a clean mouth, you won't need to clean the inside much, just the mouthpiece.What chrom is it?

Can I clean a plastic combed chromatic harp like I clean my plastic comb

diatonics - swishing it in sink of water?
