How to naturally (organically-ish, at least) clean air stones? (compost tea bubblers)

So far just gonna disconnect the tubes and brush clean the outsides, but suspect that forcing my not ideal pressured water thru them is gonna do much to clear the clogged micro-ish holes. Any stay fresh ideas?  Thanks,  OgreNick

Vinegar is a really good cleaner for a lot of gunk.

'thought of, but didn't have any & was in a pinch tho found a brush and half-assed water pressure got enuf stuff of the surface. Cuz i realized i was being...i dunno, unrealistic, given how when i started in the cleaning process i realized it didn't matter to get the air stones fully clean/clear as they'll still work, which is all i need, not optimally. Sorry for any sillymess,  Nick
