So I'm getting my Angel in the mail today, and I'm aware that sometimes older tamas can come with corrosion, so I was wondering what you guys have used to get rid of that. My mom said vinegar on a qtip, but I want to be 100% sure before trying anything. I haven't seen my tama yet, so I don't even know if there is corrosion, but I figure I should plan ahead.

I usually scrape at it with a toothpick or a q-tip without the cotton first. Then I move onto a flat screwdriver... I don't generally use liquid anything on my tamas.

I always use the rubbing alcohol because the vinager can cause water log as well if you are not careful... the rubbing alcohol dissolves before that can happen <3

Ok, thanks! I received both tamas and they're perfect. I started them up and they work fine, so I'm assuming there's no corrosion. I haven't been able to open them up to double check, but for now I think I'll be fine.
