To spark or not to spark?

I've heard that you can clean sparkplugs. After my troubles the other day I thought maybe I'd give it a try. I've got (and have thrown away) a bunch of used plugs over the years. If I could get even a couple extra rides out of each that'd be big money saved. So last night I took a BR9ES I found in the garage and had at it with a toothbrush and dish soap. That technique worked really well for the threads on the plug but didn't seem to have much effect on the electrodes. I've seen sandblaster type plug cleaners but I dunno if they're worth it...
I'll find another plug and get 2 cleaned up good, see what happens and report back.
