I breakdown my Glock, put the parts in a lingerie wash bag, and toss it in the wash with the rest of my laundry. Tide works well. Make sure you use a machine with a vertical agitator. I used one of the horizontal tumblers once and the bag broke. The parts went all over and it made a quite a racket. If I’m going to the carwash, I’ll just tie the bag to the roof rack.
Been cleaning with one since Christmas of 2005 and I haven't looked back.
Cleaned, probably, 100 plus guns and knives and never had a problem. Got a friend of the SWMBO who is a King County Sheriff, and I have cleaned his ENTIRE Issue Glock (frame, slide, parts and all) on multiple occasions without incident.
If I could put one in every FTF Supporting Member home, I would totally do it!
