TPX Magizine cleaning question

I broke a few balls in 2 of my mags today and want to know if I can simply throw my mags through water or do I have to open them up and take an hour of my time putting them back together. The only thing worrying me is if I rust the springs.

about once every 2 months or a dirty game I take every single magazine I have a part and clean them by hand with a toothbrush.
Takes me about 45 mins or so to do 15 mags. Its not that hard once your use to opening the mags and knowing how to put them back together.

Id rather take the time off the field to fix it then have it go down in the field because I didnt.

Well, can I run them through water without damaging them?

spring might rust but other than that water won't hurt them.

Use compressed air to blow dry them after washing them to ensure you get the water out and the spring will be fine.

But it's so annoying putting them back together

just take out the bottom screw and alil bit of the middle and slide or twist the spring out the bottom, leave the carrier in? This is just a theory though. plus theres the other spring at the top.

This is what I do.

The problem isn't them getting wet for few minutes, it's staying damp, air and water, for a long period.
