    Wow, thanks for all of the suggestions! I'm reminded of a story a police armorer once told me about a weapons inspection he performed. An officer had lots of whiteish slimey scum in his weapon. When asked if he cleaned it, he said yes - with Cascade in his dish washer! Hmm, Cascade, carbs, dishwasher?

    I've been using this stuff in my ultrasonic bath, with the heating turned on.

    Seems to work OK, no idea what's in it though.

    Downloaded the COSHH sheet, none the wiser.

    I couldn't use it based on the silly font alone.

    Sodium metasilicate, used in many household cleaners. TSP also. Good in a cleaning solution, maybe the non ionic surfactants help in keeping it from darkening metals? I'd like to try some.

    I have been using 50/50 distilled water and Awesome from a dollar store recommended by fasterspider on VJMOG. Set the Ultrasonic to 130 degrees for 1 hour. I like it because it is non-toxic. Is there any other cleaner that is non-toxic and environmentally friendly?

    I've been using this https://www.amazon.com/LPS-02701-Pre...l%2C235&sr=1-1
    It's concentrate so you can chose the strength. Works great removing oil, crud, rust if run long enough.
