I have one too. It's a great cleaning tool. 

Hercules (I believe that's the brand) makes a long soft cat-tail kind of cleaner with a long (and one with a short) plastic flexible "tail" you can drop down the slide and pull out the other side. It's nice for not scratching the inside of the outer slide with the brushes. I use both.
