Default Digital thermometer

Is it safe to clean and use a digital thermometer made for a grill? I've tried to clean it but the probe is attached with a braided stainless that seems impossible to clean all the nooks and crannies.

I'd not want to put that into chilled wort if you can't get it completely clean.

Fortunately, these aren't that expensive - http://www.amazon.com/ES432-Ultra-Fast-Water-Resistant-Thermometer/dp/B0089O0W1G/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1389841364&sr=8-2&keywords=water+quick+thermometer

I'd recommend this instead http://www.amazon.com/ThermoWorks-Original-Cooking-Thermometer-Timer/dp/B0019R4HQQ/ref=zg_bs_289809_8
unless you're drilling and mounting the thermometer into the side of something.
