This is very nice design. I really like it.
Put the sponge which has no tendence to peel. I put once sponge use to wash my dishes and it choke my nozzle so I had problem to clean this out.
Sponge used to safe the electronics part would be the best. If you don't have one, use just a piece of cotton or linen.

never used these before. Do you add anything additional to the sponge such as a drop of lubricant? Will the lubricant hurt the print or the hotend?

Cool...put a notch down the side of it...this way you can side load the filament instead of having to feed it thru before screwing together...either way a really neat design!!!!!

Thanks! I`m glad!
This cleaner installs ones for a long time. It is not a problem to install it. Thirstly thread a screw. Then - a soft material. Then - body of cleaner. Only three simple operations to install this cleaner.
The best feature is possibility to press a soft material (foam-rubber) to filament. It gives a good cleaning.
I will upload IGES-format model for you to modify it...
