    You might try hot soapy water and then a through drying.

    Anything else that would do any better job, would likely damage the plastic.

    The graphite residue in both bottle will come out with soap and water.

    The dark amber discoloration in the powder bottle is probably permanent. I tried polishing it out of my P-W powder tube with a 2" buff and metal polish and got nowhere. A new tube was $14.

    Other than purchasing new ones, I use a 1/4" dowel with a piece of rag attached to the end. I soak the bottles with soap for a while and scrub the inside with the stick. It really only works to get out excess graphite though.

    I had tried just about everything there is and someone told me to use oxyclean. It did a nice job, not perfect, but a lot better than they were. Don
