    Nah.... don't worry. Just let it build up til you can pare it off with a knife.

    Serve with olives on toothpicks.

    Wipe the wand down with a damp cloth immediately after every use and open the steam valve for a couple of seconds to expel any milk remnants.

    Was going to offer something along these lines, however, I'm not that sort of person.

    Not where i have had it !...just another variety of Latte.
    but like many coffee versions , it varies depending on the local culture.

    Odd for a "coffeepro" to be asking how to clean a steam wand ?

    Umm guys,

    I purge then steam the milk and i wipe the wand and purge it again as usual

    but thats for steaming now its for scalding with all those worrying curds so i thought maybe some precautions here should be done.....

    Spaniards live their milk hot like hotter than 160f

    (Edit: *live* -> love)
