Question on cleaning PIS horns (m)

Good morning all! I have just boiled my PIS horns, yet thanks to those lovely assemblers at Medela I can not get the yellow pieces off. Consequently I'm not getting 100% of the buildup out of the vertical part where the milk slides down. Any thoughts on removing the stuck yellow pieces without breaking the whole thing? I'd hate to think that even though the boiling water did get into that part of the horn, it's still not removing all of the residue and could eventually make Anna sick if it harbored germs, etc.

TIA! Have a good day everyone!

If you (or hubby) can't get the valve off by gripping it with a hand towel and twisting it, contact Medela right away for replacements. It is very important that you disassemble it completely to clean it. Go to medela.com and either send them an e-mail or call the customer service number. They have excellent customer service and will probably replace them immediately at no charge.
