Boiling works good on all steel guns(don't know about plastic) maybe dishwasher for plastic, but have to wait till the wife is out to do it in the kitchen.

Need to dry with blow drier completely and lube after works best on stainless guns.

Here’s my suggestion a bit pricy perhaps but …that is up to you. There’s a lot of good cleaning products out there, is this boiling for every day cleaning or what? But, like I said this is my SUGGESTION.
