Default Barrel Bath Cleaning Idea

I was wondering what type of barrel baths do other shooters use? I picked up a reel top poultry feeder #9824 at Family Farm and Home to use for soaking the barrel of the 4595TS during the cleaning phase. The feeder is 1-1/2" deep, 3-1/2" wide and 24" long, just large enough to lay the barrel. I then pour in the cleaning solution and let the barrel sit for 15 minutes or so, then take a tooth brush to scrub it down.

Default Rubber stopper method (economical)

With a economy of materials its just a easy to clean just the inside the bore.
I stand the rifle up (removed from stock) plug the chamber with a rubber stopper and pour about 1 oz of cleaner down the bore.

Not a great stretch to electro clean the bore that way.

When finished the rubber stopper is easy to stow, in my cleaning kit than the tray.
My dirty/used cleaning solution is minimal as well, when it comes to disposal.

If I need to soak the whole barrel& action minus the stock I'd use my PVC fishing rod case (2" PVC x 4 foot long)
