Keeping your brew area clean?

Anyone using this type of steam wand extension as a group head cleaning device? Interesting idea, this one's made by JoeFrex. A bit pricey here. {image} {image}

Keeping your brew area clean?

Nice! Do you use any liquid cleaner when polishing your machine's stainless steel? Or just plain water?
