Well, you could just get a cotton swab and try to clean it out. You can also buy TP dissolving liquid and wash it. You can probably even wash it under a sink and let it dry for several days out in the sun.

Was it sold as 'as is' or can you return it?

returns only if it is defective. He stated it in the description. I just didn't see it. $162 altogether w/ shipping. I placed a bid on it last nite around 4:30 in the morning. Woke up this morning and saw that I had won. I was thinking of using q tips and maybe some alcohol and let it dry out for a long time for reassurance. I think I'll be fine if I let to dry like Pete said.
