Soak it, then just wipe it down.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Tac, I've worked on built and refinished guns for about 30 years. I can't tell you anyone finish is better for you than another, lot of variable , you, holster and the list goes on. Robards does good work, bluing is classic. Do you want a shiny polished gun, do you want one that looks like a parkerized military model or one of the new coatings that allow pictures or color. What I can say is research not only the toughness of the finishes but the aesthetics. When you buy a new gun yo have somewhat limited choices, but when you refinish it the choices are open. Nothing I include in my daily routine is more personal than my choice of weapon, you have chance to make it truly individualized. Don't let a rush to judgement or a few dollars take that opportunity from you.

Not to be a smart-azz but as long as it takes. Try it for 30 mins and if that doesn't work leave it over night. (I'd put money on it working in the 30 mins.)
