Before you do that, you might want to try popping that thing in to the freezer for 10-15 minutes, then, if it's got a kief catcher, just bang the whole kit on a table or something solid a few times. If It doesn't have a kief catcher than you should bang each half on a piece of paper. When I do this with my spacecase (with kief catcher) and my grinder is dirty enough, I can usually get a pretty nice amount of kief.

I just clean out the screw parts by taking a playing card or something similar and scraping the kief, that prevents screwing the grinder together, into the catch.

This is an awesome and simple way to clean a grinder. I left mine in the freezer for twenty minutes and got a rediculous amount of keif that fell to the bottom. This way you dont loose any keif to iso or a q-tip.

Where do you guys store your keif? I have a bunch in my kief catcher but im thinking there should be a way to save that and maybe turn it into hash

Darkyet, check out a thrift store or a local discount store for some of the smaller mason jars. Good way to store kief if you don't want to keep it in the grinder itself. Avoid plastic bags for kief or hash.

For cleaning ... besides the mentions of freezer & the standard alcohol/salt mix use a razor blade to scrape out any excess in the top layer, run it over the screen to help kick kief out, and use it to pile your kief up in the bottom tray before you sprinkle it over your blunt or on top of your bowl. :smoking:

Beware... friends might think you're doing coke when they see you scraping up grinded weed into a small pile.
