Use a Blow Torch to clean a nozzle after removing the Nozzle from the Printer?

Can you use a blow torch to clean a nozzle after removing the nozzle from the printer? Many people told me that it usually does more harm than good.
Please shed some light on this?
Thanks in advance!

I think you can buy a few spare nozzles.
In general, brass nozzles are not expensive and direct replacement : saves time but also reduces the hassle of cleaning.

Hi.

I would suggest that the HOT-AIR station would be better.
