Default Meal Worm Care?

So for some reason I can't really keep my meal worms in great health and I don't know what I'm doing wrong so I'm hoping maybe someone can tell me how to care for these cross buggers AND how to clean their cage. Cause they're gross and smell and need to be cleaned. They have a layer of black poop building up.
I keep them in this...http://www.petco.com/product/5914/PETCO ... s_Carriers The little pink one.
I have oatmeal in there as well as I put at potato in there. But the potatoes go bad so fast is there anything else I can use?
I really don't want this batch to mold like my last one :/
So my main thing is the cleaning them. How do you clean them with all the oat meal and poop and stuff without getting them gross and picking them out one by one?
