Another tip on keeping this tamper clean, is at the end of the day (after 3+ espresso routines for me) I take it over to the sink, slightly retract the guide assembly and give it a short blast with compressed air (the kind you use for your computer). This really does the job. 8)

If you have a little brush for cleaning, like the one that comes with a Niche Zero, you can hold the tamper open over your knockbox or a sink and quickly dust it out, too.

Not as cool as compressed air but it works well enough.
