Hey y'all, so I'm just getting into backpacking and wanted to test out my (new and first) camp stove before I needed it for realsies. Decided I'd make ramen and got to it. Put the pot on, lit the stove, and sprinkled in the flavor packet. Did not anticipate it boiling as quick as it did and boiled over a small amount.

I drained the liquid that pooled inside the holes above the valve and left it to dry out but I'm worried that the salt and sugar in the water will compromise the stove. Does anyone have any advice? I saw someone on Reddit mention rubbing alcohol and compressed air to get out soup, but I was wary of acting on a singular piece of advice. Thanks y'all.
