After tumbling cleaning

Hey gang I was wondering if anybody's come up with some good cleaning techniques after a bottle is tumbled.

Specifically for what I called" blackheads" I suspect it's the polishing compound that gets stuck in the tiny little nooks and crannies that appears dark grey or black. I currently use muriatic acid, sometimes soft scrub but I'm wondering if anyone's got some other tips that work.

Thanks
Mike

I realize this is months old, but for follow on readers: Some folks use waterpiks to flush out the black spots. Since I do my post tumble cleaning in my backyard I use a high pressure water ****** on my garden hose and it does the trick. You just have to figure out the angle of the pocket being flushed.
