The CVA Parts Soaker looks like just the ticket for hard to clean tiny parts.  Even the breech plug.  So I was thinking about getting the CVA Parts Soaker with the "citrus" cleaner and nice little basket thing.  But there are none for sale around here, I hates to pay rediculour shipping fees.  

The wife does'nt have an citrus cleaners around the house.

And so my question:  Given that I shoot BH208, what is another good soak to just drop those litte parts in so they get nice and clean.

Small parts that don't contain lead, copper or plastic?....LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner. Sold at places like Ollies and Dollar Stores. It works much better than things like Simple Green and MAPS, which is a mix of
Murphy's Oil Soap, Isopropyl Alcohol, and Hydrogen Peroxide.

Works for me, too.  Was just admiring the little basket in the CVA kit that you can soak the smaller parts in.  Might get them really clean down in side where its hard to get to.

Guess if I had the jar and little basket I could just soak the parts in Hoppes.  But I don't and have not seen simliar around to buy.

just get a small jar and go to dollar store and buy one of those real small cone shaped hand held strainers and fill jar with Hoppes #9 and put parts in strainer and sit in jar..

for the breech plug I just take it to the sink and use a plastic stiff bristle tooth brush and a couple q tips to clean the breech plug fouling out. Along with the proper size drill bit of course.

My method is different.   Breech plugs and nipples are sprayed with Windex Multi-Purpose Cleaner  then the crud and anti-seize are  knocked off with an old toothbrush.   A drill or bristled pipe cleaner is run into  the plug.   Takes less than two minutes to clean a breech plug.

Sounds like you guys have it figured out.  But I do have a tad of trouble handling the little firing pin and spring.  

Wife gave up a jewlry cleaner jar that had a little basket in it, pretty much like the CVA jar.  I dumped out the jewelry cleaner and refilled it Hoppes.  Now it's all good in the hood!
