I like Ballistol, too. Isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush can also lift crud.
Hey "wrdwrght"? Do you use the 91% Isopropyl alcohol? I started using that to get off the worst of the accumulated grime and then finishing it up with BAllistol and have had really good results. I've found that by doing that in a two step method that it seems to do a more thorough job. I just started using the 91% Isopropyl rubbing alcohol about a year ago. In the past I used the 91% alcohol to remove stuff like glue off of scotch tape and other types of tape. Also I find the alcohol for internal cleaning without the worry of water getting trapped in moving part areas.
I'm glad you brought that up because I should have mentioned that myself. But I do find that the 91% Isopropyl alcohol does have a better overall result than the cheaper, weaker rubbing alcohol does.
But BALLISTOL also has ideal lubrication properties to it as well as a protection from minor corrosion.
