I usually clean them as soon as I'm done using them or between coats. A little swish of reducer or thinner run through a couple of times, disassemble it and hit the innards with air from an air gun and they're clean and good to go. The trick is catching the material while it's fluid and it makes clean up way easier. I like Michel's method of the carb tip, unfortunately my guns have them plastic seals of fluid tip to the body and it doesn't hold up well to any aggressive solvents.
