How to clean out flow hive frames that have had brood in them

Have a queen who got past the queen excluder and laid in the top box in my flow frames. Wanting to clean out these frames properly but cant find videos or information about how to get them clean. Their are a few brood still in the frames as i took them out of the hive.

Hi Finchie, I remembered some discussion about this & hope it helps. The upshot is that dismantling the frames seems to be the only way to get them clean when there’s brood, propolis, beetle slime or mold in them.
