How To Maintain Your Trangia Alcohol Stove
- Remove the rubber gasket from the lid

- Rinse thoroughly with water
- Wipe dry, and then allow the burner cup to dry for 24 hours to ensure the interior cotton wick dries completely
- Replace the rubber gasket back into the lid
- Test the burner with a small amount of fuel to ensure proper function
