Cleaning 3dsolex Matchless v3 nozzle - acetone soak?

Recommended Posts

Hey kids!

I'm running the 3dsolex matchless v3 hot ends and nozzles and they're amazing (thanks gr5!)

I'm getting over 60mm^3 extrusion volume with ABS using the .6mm race nozzle and .4mm layer height.  It's mind boggling how fast I can make useless fidget toys and printer upgrades now.

Anyway, my question is - does anyone know if these nozzles can be cleaned by soaking them in acetone?  Maybe MEK?  I've got some ABS and PC buildup and I'd like to get them shiny again.
