    Gunscrubber(Synthetic Safe) works great on my polymer firearms. It is designed not to harm plastic and cleans firearms and magazines also without worry of damage. I use a can of compressed gas to speed up the drying process in the nooks and crannies of the Slide & Frame. Lubricate following the instruction manual and you are good to go.

    Well after all...

    Aren't Glocks refered to as "Tupperware" for a reason??
    When Guns Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have guns

    Just remember, When seconds count help is mere minutes away

    Also remember, When you go to trial by jury you are putting yourself into the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

    Yes...... Several local LEO's have told me they were taught in the police acadamy (Savanah, Ga.) that the best way to have an 'inspection ready' service weapon (Glock 17's) was to run it through the dishwasher cycle the night before thier inspections. I was told it worked every time and the Officers still employ the dishwasher after range days and such.

    I have yet to do such a thing with my Glocks and don't anticipate ever resorting to such measures either, but I don't believe it'd hurt the Glock at all either. I cleam my dishes AND my guns much better by hand anyway.

    My guess is that it would survive and probably end up really rather clean but, probably not as clean as a good hand cleaning. It also may get some lube out of places it belongs where it's hard to replace.
    Actually the reason the mugs fade is because of the ink used on them. I used to work for a company (QLT Imprit Supplies) that sold imprintable mugs to those kiosks in malls where they can put your picture on them. Heat and pressure put the image on the mug, so it's not a far stretch to think heat will make them fade. To prove it, all you need to do is put one in the back window of your car for a year or two. You'll see what I mean.

    A friend of mine does this with his Springfield 1911. I still look at him like he has three heads coming out of his shoulders.

    I did it with my SKS to get the Cosmoline off of it. Worked very well and I lubed it up afterwards and didn't have any issues with it rusting. It now belongs to my little brother.

    You guys have it all wrong.

    Steps:

    1. Load magazine and cycle one into the chamber AND HOLSTER IT.
    2. Throw cocked and locked pistol into laundry washing machine with dirty clothes.
    3. Add 3 times the normal amount of dry powdered detergent.
    4. Run the load through the entire cycle.

    Here's where the common mistake is made..

    DO NOT put the pistol in the dryer...
    THIS IS THE TIME FOR THE OVEN..
    Bake for 45 minutes at 375 and test for doneness with a toothpick.

    Hmmm GOOD..

    I do not bake, fry, broil, toast or pressure cook any of my firearms, or for that matter shower with them. If I did I would do what I normally do when cleaning them, UNLOAD THEM

    I do the same, except I use Murphy Oil Soap.

    Never heard of that one, but heck, they seem to be able to take anything else, so why not??
