How do you clean your extruder (polymer clay)? I sometimes just let the clay re-harden a bit and work it out with a toothpick or some such but if I am needing to do a different color in the extruder, right away, it takes some time to get all the softened and conditioned clay out.

I had thought about using rubbing alcohol bc it breaks the polymer clay down but am up for other suggestions too...

There are various ways to clean the barrels of clay guns on the Clay Guns page at my site, as well as my way of extruding to avoid having to clean them in the first place Grin :
