Cleaning a Mesh Sink Strainer

The sink strainer we're using is fine mesh... to catch all the food debris (as the other sink strainer didn't catch enough). But how can I clean it? Is there a way to clean the smaller food particles from the fine mesh sink strainer or should I just switch back to the other one and let the food go down the drain?

I have one of those too... I think I'll try an old toothbrush to clean mine.

Take it outside and blast it with the hose!

I let it sit over nite, dry out some, & then tap it against the garbage can. Most falls out. I use a piece of paper from the garbage & scrape it as best I can. Corita, Illinois.
